News: Master Cutler heads for Canada

By

Newly-installed Master Cutler, Craig McKay, CEO of Rotherham-based engineering firm, Evenort Ltd is heading up an export visit next year on the opportunities that exist for UK companies in Canada.

With its headquarters and production facility at Dinnington, Evenort is a market leader in the machining and processing of stainless steel and nickel alloys to high tolerances.

The cutlers' company dates back to 1624 and the Master Cutler role is seen as an ambassador representing the industries of the Sheffield region, both nationally and internationally.

Organised by the International Trade Forum, the event will be the first ever export visit headed up by the Master Cutler and is timed to coincide with the Global Petroleum Show in Calgary in June 2016.

Based in Sheffield, the International Trade Forum is a member's organisation that shares knowledge and experience in international trade, helping each other to grow in exports.

Canada is the UK's 16th largest export market for goods and has cultural, historic, and linguistic links with the UK. The EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) will help generate more trade and two-way investment, and promote jobs and growth.

Hosted by the Master Cutler, at the Cutlers' Hall, the Regional Manufacturing Forum and the International Trade Forum are jointly presenting the forthcoming export event on the November 17.

The programme will see Sheffield engineering firm DavyMarkham telling their success story in trading with Canada. The High Commission of Canada in the UK will be sharing opportunities for UK companies in Canada.

DavyMarkham has sold around £70m of mining equipment to Canada over the last 12 years to mines in Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec.
