The Centre has been assisting Sertec for the past year and in that time the group have also become foundation members of the BCCH so, in turn, taking full advantage of the unique professional service the network has on offer, to achieve an emblematic British brand presence.
The company is a huge British automotive engineering firm, manufacturing components of all shapes and sizes within the automotive sector, supplying made to order products to all the leading car manufacturers, top of the list being JLR.
Within the group they have entities dotted all over the globe with their HQ being Birmingham where they have several sites dealing with anything from components to logistics, providing both semi-manufactured and final components to either customer direct or other Sertec sites.The company diversified into several locations putting the group collective at well over 2300 employees.
The sale of Wild Automotive to Sertec Group alone created a 250 million GBP automotive engineering powerhouse back in 2016.
As a result of this acquisition, Sertec acquired the manufacturing site in Ászár Hungary. With the group insistent on applying the overall company ethos to their Hungarian branch as well, they requested us to assist in the complex procedure that followed after the re-branding of the company. Along with the Centre providing general consultancy service we have also reached out to the chamber network that has provided assistance with the following: legal & investment advisory, available funding opportunities, both in terms of EU and government funds relating to equipment, training & investment along with additional HR/ recruitment services.
As Sertec is flying a very significant British exporting flag with tremendous tangible results, we are also planning to organise a high-level CEO dinner with Sertec whereby the top UK management along with the local Hungarian directors would be presenting as hosts.
We trust Sertec will continue being a flagship story for British exporting for years to come.
