HSBC Business Thinking – Regional Finalist 2011


Brierley Hill based manufacturer Brandenburg UK Ltd has been announced as a regional finalist in a national business initiative.

The Business Thinking scheme run by HSBC is aimed at identifying the UK’s best business thinkers, and supporting them in international growth. Through the initiative, HSBC is encouraging businesses to generate new ideas and approaches to business growth by challenging current business thinking.

Brandenburg UK Ltd is the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of insect light traps, as well as offering technically advanced solutions for the control of biting insects, and air sterilisation systems. Our products are exported to 115 countries worldwide, but unlike our competitors, we employ local people to manufacture all of our products right here in the Midlands. Following investment into new press shop equipment, we are pleased to be able to offer our expertise and capabilities to other companies in the Midlands sold through the Caucus Ltd brand.

HSBC has announced a total of 54 finalists as part of the initiative, across nine regional areas of the UK. Each regional finalist has the opportunity to take part in a thought provoking week-long ‘business exchange’ visit to either Brazil, North America, The United Arab Emirates, Hong Kong or Europe.

Brandenburg UK Ltd, Managing Director Mathew Kaye, recently visited Sau Paulo in Brazil which provided extensive insight he says “With a $2.5trillon GDP, a low debt level and a prediction for the country to become a larger economy than the UK and France, Brazil is a country that cannot be ignored by any forward thinking exporter. Although this was a short trip, it was rich in information and the additional knowledge gathered along with the relationships built has given us a new perspective on defining growth strategies and addressing opportunities differently in all parts of the globe.”

The overall regional finalists will be announced between November 2011 and March 2012. To track our journey follow
