Two West Midlands companies from the environmental technologies sector have won more than £300,000 of business after a visit to Turkey.
International Synergies, of Kings Norton Business Centre, and Black Country Metals, of Lye, secured the deals after a UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) visit to Istanbul and Ankara earlier this month.
International Synergies, which identifies, develops and delivers industrial ecology-based solutions across all business sectors worldwide, signed a contract worth £80,000 for industrial symbiosis consultancy services in Turkey, with the prospect of further work in subsequent years.
Black Country Metals, a trader of ferrous and non-ferrous metals in global markets, is expecting £250,000 worth of business to come from the visit in the short term and at least double this within a year.
Peter Mathews CMG, chairman and managing director of Black Country Metals, said: “Winning this business is great news for us and shows that there are excellent opportunities in Turkey for West Midlands companies.”
