Stowmarket manufacturer Timberwolf has achieved its first sale in the Far East, with the help of a partnership forged through a Suffolk Chamber of Commerce export event.
The company, based on the Tomo Industrial Estate, has supplied one of its 190TDHB wood chipping machines to the Hock Thai Motor Company for use in managing the greenery on a golf course in Brunei.
Timberwolf used the services of Colchester-based freight forwarder Wallis Shipping, to which it was introduced at a networking event forming part of Suffolk Chamber’s year-long Exporting is Good for Suffolk campaign.
Alex Ball, sales director of Timberwolf, said: “When we received the initial interest from Brunei about our brand, it was an exciting time for the team. However, our immediate concern was about how we were going to get the machine safely and securely overseas.
“Thankfully, having Wallis Shipping as a partner has meant that the extremely complex process couldn’t have been more straightforward.”
