Exports on the rise in Kildare
Half year figures for North Kildare Chamber’s export documentation service show that Kildare based companies are trading strongly. The Chamber has seen a 9% rise in figures for the first six months of 2015 compared to the first half of 2014. The Chamber’s trade documentation service certifies documentation for companies seeking to export outside of the EU.
As part of ongoing enhancements to the service, the Chamber offers an online certification service which reduces costs for local companies. “In the first half of this year we have worked with several new companies who are exporting for the first time. In the past month alone we have worked with two companies who have never exported outside the EU before and they are now shipping their products to India and Malaysia” said Allan Shine.
“North Kildare and the wider county has a myriad of great companies and we in the Chamber are delighted to see that many more of these companies are now entering new markets and that they are working with us to grow their businesses” he added. North Kildare Chamber was one of the first Chambers in Ireland to offer an online certification service in 2013. It reduces costs for exporting companies by reducing time completing documentation and costs associated with it.
