International expansion earns award for Scorpion

Chorley-based Scorpion Automotive has earned an industry award in honour of its international success.

The company earned the International Trade Award trophy at the annual Northern Automotive Alliance Awards.

The event showcases the achievements of the region’s diverse range of vehicle manufacturers, supply chain companies and service providers, and Scorpion’s award won its award based on its global marketing strategy, delivery status of the strategy, and overall results in terms of generating sales leads and orders.

Stuart Knowles, senior consultant of Morson International who sat on the juding panel, said: “Scorpion has shown a significant level of international trade and growth within the last 12 months.

“In addition, international trade is core to the company’s strategy and vision and an integral part of their ambitious growth plans. The company has expanded from exporting into Europe and Asia into the USA plus the Middle East and North Africa during the last year.”

Mark Downing, Scorpion managing director, said: “This year has marked the start of our most ambitious overseas growth plans. Our global footprint now spans 16 countries across six continents with further expansion cited in 2018 having entered into the Middle East and North Africa regions.

“To this end, Scorpion Automotive FZE was formed in June this year. Based from its Dubai offices, it’s targeting 12 countries across the MENA region with a focus upon the high growth markets of the six Gulf Cooperation Council states.

“We’ve secured several business wins through our wholly owned India based subsidiary and opened a sales office in Pakistan to service the local high growth motorcycle and scooter market. Scorpion is also making inroads into the USA having won a contract to design and build an American truck lamp; and a new opportunity to supply our highly acclaimed line fit CAN-BUS alarm system to US based vehicle manufacturers.”
