Blackman & White's MD optimistic post-Brexit

Post Brexit, Blackman & White's managing director Alex White has expressed optimism by saying that the strengthening of the dollar and euro against the pound meant, their prices have actually reduced by 8 per cent for overseas customers, while remaining the same for their UK customers.

In a statement, the MD of the UK based manufacturer of wide format flatbed cutter said, “As a British manufacturer we design and engineer all of our machine components in the UK. This means that post Brexit, though the euro has dropped against the pound significantly, our prices remain at the same competitive level for our UK customers.”

“What this means for our European and overseas customers is that their prices have actually dropped, meaning there's never been a better time for buying British, with an 8 per cent reduction in price for our overseas customers simply because of the strengthening of the euro and the dollar,” he added.

Local politicians too averred that that UK companies will now be encouraged to tender for UK contracts as opposed to having to follow EU guidelines for an all inclusive European tender process.

“We see this as a big advantage to UK manufacturers and there will be opportunities for UK companies to thrive. We are confident in our company and product offerings and optimistic for the future in a stronger, fairer market,” White informed. (AR)
