Panaz wins 2017 'Export Award' from Furniture Makers' Company

Panaz are proud to have recently been awarded the prestigious 2017 Export Award from The Furniture Makers’ Company.

The award recognises excellence in promoting and selling British designed and manufactured furniture, bedding and furnishings to overseas markets, considering all aspects of business operation and is overseen by a panel of industry experts.

Of Panaz, judge Dr Tony Smart MBE, Master of The Furniture Makers’ Company, said: “We’d like to congratulate the whole team at Panaz for this great achievement. The company demonstrated a very clear export strategy, one that has been evidently communicated throughout the company and pursued rigorously over the years. Panaz has deftly taken into account customers’ requirements in some very different and demanding markets across the world which has subsequently resulted in fantastic growth for the business. It is a great example of how a business should operate in multiple territories around the world.”

Panaz founder and CEO Tony Attard OBE commented: “We are absolutely thrilled to have been recognised by The Furniture Makers’ Company for our successful work in export markets.  A tribute goes to our great team and partners across the world.”

This accolade marks Panaz’s third major business award in recent months and the second recognising the company’s growth as an established international business over the last few years. Three decades of well-defined and executed export strategies and continued investment in our overseas presence has seen Panaz increase its reach from the heart of Pendle to 5 different continents.

Panaz will be presented with their latest award at the Furniture Makers’ Royal Charter Dinner at The Honourable Artillery Company, London on Tuesday 26th October. Be sure to check back for more updates then.
