Bradford-based manufacturer Victor Manufacturing has achieved a 60% increase in export sales for the financial year to date.
Sales of catering equipment into the Middle East are the driving force behind the recently released figures which have shot from £250k to £400k in the past 12 months.
Victor was named as an official supplier to the Sultan of Oman in September 2014 and is contracted to provide barracks catering equipment to the Sultan's Armed Forces. Following the introduction of new health and nutrition guidelines for schools in Abu Dhabi, the business will also supply and install its Caribbean modular counters to schools in the Emirate.
Victor has also enjoyed growing sales in the domestic market, driven by strong performance in the education sector following the introduction of Universal Infant Free School Meals and expansion in the retail counters market.
Andrew Gibson, sales director, for Victor, said: "Sales into new territories is an exciting part of our expansion. Building strong links with customers overseas through our distributor partners, and adapting our processes so we can respond quickly to customers' specific needs are central to our success. By growing our factory facilities, increasing headcount and extending shifts we have been able to meet high demand from customers across the globe.
