GCP-backed AIS wins Export Award at 2023 Made in the UK Awards

GCP is pleased to share that its portfolio company AIS has won the Export Award at the prestigious Made in the UK Awards, hosted by Insider Media.

As the awards focused on highlighting the very best of UK manufacturing across key industries, we are particularly proud that AIS has been recognised for its success in championing UK products in overseas markets.

Following the firm’s success in receiving the King’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade, this award is further recognition of AIS’ global expansion into markets across Asia, Africa, and the Americas. Of particular note is the business’ growth into Brazil and China which has expanded overseas sales by over 30% since entering those markets in 2020.

James Blake, Managing Partner, GCP, commented:

“It has been quite the summer for the team at AIS, first the King’s Award and now a Made in the UK Award. Both awards that have been well deserved by a team that has executed the GCP growth toolkit to great success. International expansion is a core path to growth for the business and we are thrilled to see the recognition come in.”
