BCCC 2014 WINNER - INTERNATIONAL TRADE (Square)For the international trade award, the judges were impressed that Zaun had focused on a very well planned strategic move into various international trade areas throughout the world, concentrating in the Middle East and Dubai. They said we planned our ambitious growth by grabbing opportunities given by such major events as the London Olympics 2012.

Judge Claire Barratt, Group Director of Communications, Accord Group, said: “The businesses that were shortlisted are delivering really innovative technologies that are not only creating jobs but wealth and immediate benefits to families living in the Black Country. The West Midlands used to be known as ‘the workshop of the world’, and knowing what I do now, to me, it is still just that.”

Paul Linton, Chair of the Chamber Judging Panel and President of Sandwell, said: “The Chamber Awards Dinner is a perfect opportunity to celebrate and reward excellence in businesses in the Black Country. The judging panel and I were very impressed with the high standard and diversity of award entries this year.”
