Spanish construction equipment manufacturer Ausa has been named as Europe’s best exporting company at this year’s European Business Awards.
Ausa was one of 24,000 companies who entered for the awards, which started in 2007 and cover 11 categories.
It won the award for the Import/Export category exactly a year after sending off its initial application, having become national winner in September and qualifying for the European semi-final in February.
The company said: “We decided to take part because we are aware of our strengths in import/export.
“In recent years we have worked very hard in this direction, and we thought it could be worth external recognition.”
