PharmiWeb Solutions Joins UK’s Top 100 Creative Companies

New creative sector taskforce to boost trade by £500 million

Business is Great BritainA drive to help the UK’s creative companies win high value contracts overseas was launched by the UK government this week.  

UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) will support a taskforce of the UK’s top 100 creative sector small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to win £500 million worth of high value overseas contracts in the next three years. The initiative is part of a government plan to get 100,000 more UK businesses exporting.  

PharmiWeb Solutions has been selected to join an elite group of 100 companies on the taskforce, including Zaha Hadid Architects, The British Museum, AKQA, factorydesign and the V&A.  

Business Secretary Vince Cable said:  

“The growing appetite for British design offers many opportunities for innovative firms of all sizes to boost their overseas trade and attract new investment. Collectively the creative industries already generate more than £36 billion a year for the UK economy - £70,000 every minute - and employ 1.5 million people. With new support from UK Trade & Investment, we want to help creative SMEs access more high value supply chain opportunities across the globe."  

Each company in the taskforce will have its own international expansion plan and participate in a minimum of two overseas visits each year to target high value projects.  

PharmiWeb Solutions CEO Paul Hartigan said:  

“It’s hugely flattering that we’ve been selected to join such an impressive group of creative services businesses, and the initiative matches our own international goals very closely. Over 70% of our business now comes from overseas sales, and having recently opened an office in New York City, we’re expecting that figure to grow considerably. And we look forward to working with the UKTI Creative Sector task force to do our bit for UK exports”
