This year's Scottish Export Awards took place on 22nd March at the Hilton Glasgow Hotel.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and entrepreneur Fraser Doherty both took to the stage to address the 500+ people who filled the Hilton Hotel Glasgow for the fifth annual awards, sponsored by HSBC and delivered in association with Scottish Enterprise and Highlands and Islands Enterprise.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said: “These Awards are an opportunity to celebrate the international success of some of our most ambitious businesses. They have all successfully identified and seized new export opportunities around the world.
“They represent a great example of what we want to see: globally successful Scottish companies producing cutting edge, high quality goods and services. In doing so, they are expanding their businesses, boosting Scotland’s economy and enhancing our international reputation.”
Winning the overall award after securing the Large Exporter of the Year category, and with more than seventy years of export experience to thirty countries, the Bridge of Weir Leather Company is export focussed, and has always been looking for the best potential markets for its products.
