Fabcon Wins International Award for Expansion
UK-based Fabcon Food Systems has won the regional International Expansion of the Year category at the Barclays Entrepreneurs Awards.
The business has built a large network of global customers since it was founded in 2015 – with Fabcon supplying and installing its handling and processing equipment to customers not only in the UK, but also wider into mainland Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Australia.
Recent highlights include Fabcon’s installations in Norway and Romania, with a further order for a pellet frying line in the Middle East.
Trevor Howard, managing director of Fabcon Food Systems, said: “It’s a really proud moment for us to be recognized for our expansion across the world as we work with a growing number of snack manufacturers. Sales abroad now account for around 50% of our revenue and we know that customers really value quality, innovative, British-built machinery. In our short history we’ve created a brand which is recognized across the globe but more importantly, we’re being held up by snack manufacturers as a trusted partner who they immediately turn to. It’s a fantastic milestone for everyone here at Fabcon.”
The annual Barclays Entrepreneurs Awards celebrate entrepreneurs for their exceptional innovation, and for creating social change and growth that moves the UK forward.
