Recognising its contributions to exporting excellence in Europe and beyond, Ashley Fox MEP has visited the Poole, Dorset eadquarters of award-winning NMEA specialists Actisense.

Ashley Fox MEP congratulated Actisense representatives. In particular, he commended the example it has set to other Dorset based companies on how to successfully enter and engage with European markets. He was then given a guided tour of its 8,000ft² premises, gaining an insight into their day to day operations and internationally recognised marine electronic product range.
Fox said: “Over the last two decades, Actisense has continued to grow its exporting presence and now waves the Dorset flag not just across mainland Europe but also the wider world. Its success is a clear example to other regional manufacturers on the potential rewards of having a truly global outlook.’’ Actisense CEO, Phil Whitehurst said: “We would like to thank Ashley Fox for paying us a special visit. We are proud of our achievements and it’s great to receive this recognition. Not to rest on our laurels, our future plans for Europe include having at least one distributor in all EU states, including Latvia, Lithuania, and Hungary.’’ For more information about Actisense, visit: www.actisense.com
