Judges’ Comments: For achieving consistent export growth from 3.6% in 2013/2014 to 27% in 2015/2016 and to 65% in 2017/2018, Hazleton Pumps International is well-known in the rest of the world and can deliver the products and services required.
With the economic slump in the South African market, especially the stagnation in the Southern African mining sector, Hazleton Pumps International made the strategic decision to concentrate on exports with excellent results.
In line with this focus, every avenue has been explored to gain insight into export markets and the export assistance offered by the dti under the EIMA Programme has proved to be a valuable tool. Over the past 5 years several National Pavilions and Outward-Bound Trade Missions have been attended which has resulted in the above-mentioned incredible results.
