Norbar is Oxfordshire’s exporter of the year

Norbar Torque Tools of Banbury, which is celebrating its 70th Anniversary this year, has succeeded at the Oxfordshire Business Awards 2012 by being voted the county's top exporter.

The Carter Jonas Export Award was presented to Norbar by athletics star Kriss Akabusi at the recent Awards Gala Dinner at Oxford Thames Four Pillars Hotel.

The Carter Jonas Export Award recognises significant export achievements over the previous 12 months, with an organisation needing to show increased sales revenue, market share or impact of export business in the overseas markets where it operates.

Neill Brodey, managing director of Norbar, said that winning the Export Award was an exciting event in a landmark year for Norbar. "We are marking our 70th Anniversary with a relocation of our operations to a new factory in Banbury which is three times the size of our current premises. The project will be phased and is due for completion in 2014."

This Export Award follows on from Norbar's recent recognition as Business of the Year 2012 at the Cherwell Business Awards. The company has also twice won the Queen's Award for Export Achievement.
