Scottish Government's Minister for Business Visits Brand-Rex Headquarters in Glenrothes Tuesday 5 May 2015 PDF Print Brand-Rex, the leading data networking solutions provider based in Glenrothes, Scotland, has welcomed Fergus Ewing, the Scottish Government's Minister for Business, Energy and Tourism and the Scottish National Party Member of the Scottish Parliament for Inverness and Nairn. Mr Ewing’s visit to Brand-Rex was part of a fact finding mission in Glenrothes to establish what makes Scottish businesses successful on a national and international stage. Ian Wilkie, commercial director at Brand-Rex, commented on the visit: ”We welcomed the opportunity to demonstrate to a representative of the Scottish Government how strategic thinking and investment has made Brand-Rex into the industry leading company it is now. We are proud to represent Scotland as one of the United Kingdom’s most successful export manufacturers - generating over 75 per cent of sales from Europe, the Middle East, Asia Pacific and Latin America. “Mr Ewing was clearly very interested in what we do at Brand-Rex and asked to be kept informed on industry issues that the Scottish Government needs to be aware of and may be able to help with.” Business Minister Fergus Ewing said: “Brand-Rex is a Scottish company which is steeped in innovation and perfectly demonstrates how our businesses can lead the way in responsible manufacturing and utilising sustainable energy sources. Their commitment to the environment has seen it become the first in its sector to become carbon neutral on a global basis. “Brand-Rex’s multi-media Customer Experience Centre brilliantly illustrates the vital role that cabling and connectivity makes to businesses worldwide, and as a successful export manufacturer, Brand-Rex continues to extend its global reach whilst further investing and improving its processes. “During this difficult time for the Fife economy, it is encouraging to see that business activity in the area continues and with dynamic companies such as Brand-Rex. “With this enormous potential, I am sure Brand-Rex will succeed in its aims to become the number one choice for business cabling solutions around the world.” Brand-Rex already has a proven track record of successful projects in Scotland like the Parliament Building, Commonwealth Games and latest generation aircraft carrier that is being built in Scotland. The Scottish Government aims to support business relationships among Scottish enterprises and Fergus Ewing encouraged Brand-Rex to take a more active part in the business community on a national Scottish level. He especially invited comments and suggestions as to how to improve communication among businesses. -ends- For further press information please contact: Phil Turtle on: +44 (0) 7867 780676 e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or Katrin Naefe on: +44(0)1295 256138 e-mail: Katrin.email@example.com This press release was distributed by ResponseSource Press Release Wire on behalf of Brand-Rex in the following categories: Business & Finance, Computing & Telecoms, for more information visit http://pressreleasewire.responsesource.com/about.
