EMSc (UK) Ltd, green tech manufacturer of the innovative Star® range of energy saving solutions, is pleased to announce it has won the UK Trade & Investment (UKT&I) ‘Exporter of the Year’ award.

The company was nominated for the award by the Yorkshire branch of UKT&I thanks to the continued global success the company enjoyed throughout 2012 across a number of international markets, including Cyprus, Spain, Malta, Greece, South Africa and the United Arab Emirates.

A major contributing factor to EMSc (UK) Ltd winning the award was the company’s expansion into Australia during 2012. Working alongside UKT&I, a series of seminars, exhibitions and events were held across the country to raise awareness of the company’s market leading products. The activities subsequently led to the successful opening of an Australian operation.

EMSc’s (UK) Ltd’s flagship product is the market leading Powerstar, a unique triple wound voltage optimisation system with a patented design that actively reduces a considerable percentage of a building’s electrical energy consumption.

The multi award-winning system, which has been helping organisations large and small save energy and reduce carbon emissions for over a decade, has truly become a global market leading product. Powerstar is available in a full range of solutions including variable (Powerstar MAX) and fixed (Powerstar).

The company firmly believes that manufacturing has a major part to play in kick-starting the UK economy. As a result, not only are all its products manufactured in the UK, but all component parts are sourced from UK suppliers, ensuring everything is 100% British engineered.

Paul North, international business development manager for EMSc UK Ltd commented “We are not only extremely proud to have won the award, but to have been nominated by UKT&I. ‘Made in the UK’ is an internationally recognised brand and we hope our success will inspire manufacturing companies everywhere.”

Dr Alex Mardapittas, managing director of EMSc (UK) Ltd will be delivering a breakfast meeting at Headingly Stadium, Leeds, on the 21st March, highlighting how energy consultants, engineers and facilities management companies can work with EMSc (UK) Ltd to utilise the benefits offered by the Powerstar voltage optimisation system.
