Increasing Global Exports By 70%

Impact Fabrications is a Northern Ireland based manufacturer who specialises in steel fabrication for the construction, wind energy, hydro energy and the waste recycling industries.

HMC Global, working in partnership with Armagh City, Banbridge & Craigavon Borough Council, organised a trade mission to North America for select companies from the borough wishing to export into this market. Impact Fabrications were referred to HMC Global for this trade mission with the goal of establishing a base in North America for their specialised Land Rover product. Impact Fabrications had a limited presence in North America with some end users buying directly from the company, but this only accounted for 2% of overall sales.

Key Activities:

Made regional and industry assessments

Identified growth strategies

Provided 1-1 training and bespoke mentoring prior to the trade mission

Organised meetings with qualified businesses and organisations in North America

Results

Impact Fabrications exports to North America rose by 70%.

‘Having travelled on the North America trade mission to Philadelphia organised by HMC Global on behalf of ABC council I was delighted with the overall organisation of it from the travel arrangements to the accommodation leaving me more time to focus on getting business.’
