SME Export Track 100

Owned and run by the Weaving family since 1983, this Worcestershire business makes and sells agricultural machinery, from crop sprayers to cultivators. At its 60,000 sq ft site it also refurbishes used equipment for resale, and has a parts and servicing department carrying 7,000 lines. Its exports — predominantly to farmers in Europe — overtook domestic sales for the first time last year, reaching £9m under founder and managing director Edward Weaving, 65. It says this growth has been helped by a subsidiary in Holland, as well as regional sales managers covering France, Denmark, Poland and Bulgaria.
