The Furniture Makers’ Company has urged UK furnishing manufacturers that are “excelling in overseas markets” to apply for its third annual Export Award, which is part of the charity’s Manufacturing Guild Mark.

The award was launched in 2016 to “recognise excellence in promoting and selling British manufactured furniture, bedding and furnishings abroad”, the charity said.

After entries close on the 10th July 2018, a panel of judges will select the manufacturer “deemed to have made the best export initiative or effort in the previous year”, The Furniture Makers’ Company said. Fabrics manufacturer Panaz and office furniture manufacturer Boss Design previously won the award.

“The goal of the Export Award is to recognise and champion companies that are showing the way for British manufacture in export markets,” said Manufacturing Guild Mark chairman Ben Burbidge.

“The award recognises all aspects of how a business operates, including development initiatives and overseas’ markets penetrated. We encourage manufacturers of all sizes to submit applications as the size of the business concerned will be taken into account.”
