Yorkshire and the Humber exports from the chemical and chemical-related products sector were valued at £3.6bn in 2018 and grew by nearly 5% on 2017 figures. The chemicals sector is surprisingly diverse, and an integral element of our daily lives, from shampoos, soaps and cosmetics, to petrochemicals, paints, inks and varnishes. We can help you identify your next export opportunity.
We arrange a huge variety of events aimed at the chemicals sector to support you and your business to gain valuable knowledge and experience on international trade. No matter what your experience level, we have the right support for your business.
We work with a number of clients within the chemical sector, providing them with a range of support to help them succeed at selling overseas. We have worked with companies to capture their experiences so you can learn from their mistakes and their achievements.
