Overseas expansion on the agenda

Britain’s leading thermal insulation specialist is setting its sights on overseas expansion as it seeks to capitalise on growing international interest in its ground-breaking products.

Seymour Manufacturing International’s range, built around its revolutionary Tempro® insulation material, is now attracting customers in a diverse range of sectors, from food processing to pharmaceuticals.

With independent tests demonstrating the eco-friendly and cost-saving potential of its cold room doors, temperature-controlled curtains, pallet covers and associated products, SMI believes this is the perfect time to expand its network of overseas agents.

New company literature is being translated into French, German and Spanish, with online support also being refreshed to target the European Union nations.

“We are no strangers to international trade, with many customers already spread across Europe, Scandinavia, South Africa and Australia,” said SMI founder and managing director Brian Seymour. “Exports currently account for around 10 per cent of our business, but we foresee that figure rising to around 20 per cent over the coming year.”

“Having perfected our successful Tempro® range of products in the UK, we know that we can offer the same savings and economies in mainland Europe, and are now actively seeking new overseas distributors.”

Mr Seymour added: “To confirm beyond doubt the great savings to be achieved both in thousands of tonnes of carbon and significant financial terms with a return on investment in a matter of months, we have independent tests and confirmation of thermal values for Tempro® by world renowned Campden BRI.

“These tests are based on the UK’s rather moderate weather conditions – so even greater savings in both financial and environmental terms may be expected in hotter climates, with an even swifter return on investment.”

SMI, based at Sutton Maddock, in Telford, Shropshire, was formed 30 years ago. Its Tempro® material remains unchallenged as the world’s thinnest and most thermally efficient material of its kind. The company has just been shortlisted for its home county’s Excellence In Business awards, as a finalist in the Manufacturer of the Year category.
