The minister toured Suffolk-based Timberwolf last month to look at how they undertook the challenge of exporting equipment. He checked out sales, training, production, assurance processes and research and development.
Managing director Richard Marshall told him his firm was working through a three-year strategy for continued growth and increased export sales. It recently launched new website and was positioning itself for "significant growth in the next few years".
Lord Green said: "National Export Week was last month and we’re keen to reach our target to get another 100,000 UK firms exporting by 2020, helping to secure long-term and sustainable economic growth.
"Additional funding announced in the autumn statement of £140m over two years for UK trade and industry will help us deliver an ambitious package of support designed to get more SMEs exporting.
"This should help UK companies to access the highest value trade opportunities. Firms such as Timberwolf in the east of England will have a major role to play in achieving this goal."
Marshall praised the Government’s UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) initiative to help firms focus on overseas markets. It had encouraged Timberwolf look at its export strategy and was teeing up distributor meetings to ease the firm into German markets.
"Our current export reach is to 11 European countries," said Marshall. "Thanks to this continued support by UKTI, we feel confident in growing this even further."
