AN INTERNATIONAL management consultancy firm based in Peterlee is expanding its portfolio in the Middle East.

Exportis, which is based at Novus Business Centre on Peterlee Business Park, has experienced significant growth since it launched just one year ago.

The company began providing services to clients who wanted to export to the United States, but quickly diversified and have now broadened their portfolio of destinations to include the Middle East.

Helen Curry, operational support manager at Exportis, said: “We are ideally placed to support companies looking to the export market in a bid to increase sales and improve overall performance.

“We also offer the International Partner Search (IPS) which has proven to be the quickest and most cost-effective route to the market for businesses looking to recruit an overseas agent, distributor or partner.

“Many local companies are already looking at exporting in the very near future, but they often don’t know where to begin with their export journey and don’t realise what a complicated process it can be.

“Exportis works closely with our clients to provide a bespoke and tailored consultancy service to enable them to begin their export journey and to succeed. With expertise forged in the international trade and business arena for over thirty years, we also have a growing network of business development consultants working in the UK, USA and the Middle East.”
