Significantly increasing international revenues and a new Washington DC North America headquarters contribute to award success
Madley, UK. 22nd April 2013. Growing overseas sales representing 75 percent of total revenues have helped Herefordshire-based ETL Systems win the prestigious Queens Award for International Trade for a third time.
ETL is an experienced global designer and manufacturer of RF distribution equipment for satellite communications. Their 69-strong business is located close to the BT satellite earth station at Madley, in England, and has a purpose built secure factory offering 3D mechanical, RF and Microwave CAD design, along with full testing facilities.
The successful British brand, recognised internationally for quality, has posted impressive new or increasing orders in the Ukraine, Slovenia, Poland, Argentina, Indonesia, Japan, New Caledonia, and Chile and significantly increased sales in the US.
It is a satellite specialist and designs and manufactures equipment for the broadcast, telecoms, satellite communication and government sectors.
“We are overjoyed to have been recognised for our ongoing success in international markets. Our sales figures are proof that we are acknowledged as one of the best in our sector. We are pleased to be moving forward and forging a strong reputation around the world,” said Ian Hilditch, Managing Director and CEO of ETL Systems.
Earlier this year ETL opened a brand new North American headquarters in the US to take advantage of its ongoing and rapid expansion on the continent. More than 40 percent of its annual revenues now come from the region.
