Learning Resources has been named Exporter of the Year at the Educational Resource Awards. It’s the second time the firm has won the title, the first time being in 2002.
The firm’s Design and Drill (pictured) was also recognised in the Best Special Education Resource category.
Dennis Blackmore, MD, said: “We were surprised and delighted to win this important award for a second time. Last year was an outstanding year for our export business. This success is enhanced by the recognition that this award brings.”
The firm increased its export turnover by more than 30 per cent in 2007 to reach 42 per cent of its total turnover. Last year also saw the firm employ its first overseas sales manager, increase the development if its multilingual products and create a cross-department export sales team.
