( 25 / 01 / 2013 )

Wirral based composite hose manufacturer Dantec has been shortlisted for the EN North West Entrepreneur of the Year Awards 2012.

The firm manufactures hoses used for petrochemical, marine and industrial applications to transfer petrol, oil products, chemicals and liquefied gases.

It was named as one of four finalists in the International Trade category of this year’s EN business magazine awards.

Dantec Managing Director John Laidlaw said it was excellent recognition for the firm.

“This is a terrific achievement demonstrating the Dantec’s solid achievements over the last 12 months,” he said. “Dantec has an extremely strong track record in exports having signed international contracts in more than 50 countries. In total exports account for 70pc of overall sales and this year has been our strongest year of trading since inception in 1969. The oil and petrochemical export markets hold great potential for the firm. Key regions we are now targeting include Europe, the Middle East, the United States and South East Asia.”
Mr Laidlaw said the one of Dantec’s core strengths is its high calibre products. “We can provide the strongest, safest and best value products on the market,” he said. “This places us in an excellent position to broaden our share of the world wide composite hose market which is worth more than £40m. We are hugely ambitious and committed to driving growth. Crucially we want to continue building our profile and reputation for engineering excellence, as well as skill and expertise.”
