Export Support

What export support is available for composite companies?

 Composites UK is one of the 99 Department for International Trade (DiT - was UKTI) Trade Challenge Partners. In this role, our aim is to work with DiT to support our members in export activities. There is a wealth of information and advice available through the DiT website with links to critical programmes and schemes for both new and experienced exporters.

Why export?

Businesses who choose to sell overseas become 34% more productive in their first year while those already selling overseas achieve 59% faster productivity growth than non-exporters
DiT can help you succeed overseas. The figures are compelling: on average businesses earn £100,000 in additional sales within 18 months of working with DiT. This could be you.
