On Thursday 25th November, the Namgrass team from Belgium and the UK travelled to the Belgian Embassy in London for the 20th annual Golden Bridge Trade & Export Awards. They are one of Europe’s most prestigious awards which recognises the trade and export success of UK companies doing business in Belgium, and Belgian & Luxembourg companies doing business in the UK. Earlier this year Namgrass Directors Stefaan Rossel and Robert Redcliffe were invited to present to a judging panel which included the Ambassador of Belgium and the Economic & Commercial Counsellor for Brussels to name but a few!
Namgrass were awarded with the title of Best Newcomer in the UK by Ben De Smit, Economic and Commercial Counsellor for Flanders and it was our Directors who impressed the jury with their entrepreneurial spirits, creating a niche market which was deemed too small for the big players and turning it into a profitable and sizeable market with great potential. Providing high quality artificial grass solutions for companies and individuals, Namgrass works with local partners to meet the demand across the UK, touting commercial work for a number of leading UK businesses.
British Chamber of Commerce in Belgium President Thomas Spiller said: “The Golden Bridge Trade & Export Awards continue to highlight the strength and importance of the Benelux and UK markets as a whole, and this year’s winners help to emphasise that point. These bilateral awards allow businesses to celebrate their commitment to maintaining a strong UK-European relationship and that we, as chambers of commerce, will continue to facilitate a platform for these UK-Belgium & Luxembourg ties to develop.”
It is such an honour to win such an award and we want to thank all of our partners and customers for all your continued support and it is so great to be part of an award-winning team and brand!
