Crispin Simon, a new MD at UKTI, visited 3SDL after attending an export event hosted by Harriet Baldwin MP at Worcester Bosch earlier today. Mr Simon has been heading up UKTI's 'export support to SMEs' initiative since February 2012. He was keen to meet a Worcestershire-based SME in growth and chose 3SDL. Defence and Security is a key export area for the UK.
The Defence and Security Organisation (DSO), co-located with Mr Simon at 1 Victoria, has been doing a much improved job recently in supporting SMEs. However, it is never easy to balance the needs of the UK's smaller companies with the limited resources that government has to support UK export. We were heartened by the attention and grateful for the advice and offers of meaningful support. Careful not to promise what he could not deliver upon, Mr Simon's views and sentiments were both measured and realistic. We look forward to engaging with his team in the future.
