New export services launched at Chamber of Commerce

Lancashire businesses can now benefit from new services that will help them grow their exports thanks to the launch of a new Global Membership at North and Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce.

The Global Membership will deliver a full range of services including specialist documentation support and advice, legal contract review services, market selection services, access to an Advice Hub to help exporters tap into Global opportunities.

Commenting on the launch, Vera Grantham, Head of International Trade at North & Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce, said: “We are really excited about our new global membership offering.  We have listened to our exporters and we are providing a package that meets their needs and makes exporting easier.  Our ultimate goal is to help our exporters grow their business internationally whether they are exporting for the first time or are more experienced.”

North & Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce is thrilled to have partnered with Preston based health insurance intermediary Nugent Sante as their Global Membership patron.  Paul Nugent, Managing Director of Nugent Santé commented: “International private medical insurance is one of our key health insurance products, so when the opportunity came along to become a Patron of the Chamber’s new International Trade Global Membership, we were very keen to be involved. Any UK company employing staff who travel abroad, either for a short visit or maybe even living in a foreign country has a duty of care to cover the health needs of their staff. Of course, not only is this important, it also makes sound financial sense; there’s no point in having a member of staff representing your company abroad if they can’t do their job properly because they’re ill.  A corporate international private medical insurance policy ensures a company is protecting its staff and can often provide many additional benefits, such as health screening and vaccinations as well as routine maternity cover. We have a whole team of experts based at our offices in Preston who can provide specialist advice on international health insurance, and tailor packages to suit your business needs”.

Since its launch just a couple of weeks ago, there has been a great response from local businesses. David Hamer, CEO of Preston based exporter Pakawaste said: “The membership is a fantastic opportunity to develop our knowledge of new export markets and share experiences with other exporters.  With Britain’s exit from the E.U, building our strength in global markets has never been so critical to the success of the business”.
