MCL Group Industries Ltd., the Staffordshire, England-based composites manufacturer, has announced plans to export worldwide for the first time.
The firm, formerly known as Moorland Composites Ltd., has been exporting to a number of European countries for more than a decade, but said it had recently initiated deals in Australia, Libya, South Africa and the United Arab Emirates.
Mark Owen, business director at MCL Infrastructure, said the demand from some countries had become “too great to ignore.”
“Our products offer both technical and commercial advantages to our export clients, which could be utilized within all evolving utility and construction markets.
“The unique design of many of our products means that we are able to ship them in such a way as to utilize every inch of space in costly air and sea freight, thus not transporting fresh air.
“Buyers have already found that our lightweight, strong products can solve engineering and technical problems that no other products can,” he added.
Products manufactured by MCL include gas and electricity meter boxes; underground access chamber systems and kiosks used in the gas, electricity, water, highways and rail markets, and Radlock, a road-plate used when excavating carriageways during roadworks.
