Success in the HSBC International Business Awards

Prvni brnenska strojirna Velka Bites has placed among the three best Czech exporters in the HSBC International Business Awards with the “Penetration of Decantation Centrifuges into the Latin American Market” project. The HSBC International Business Awards are focused on supporting dynamic Czech companies that are aiming for success in foreign markets. PBS Velka Bites advanced with its project into the 2nd round where it was presented to the expert jury consisting of representatives of the Ministry of Industry and Trade and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Industry and Transport Union, HSBC, Czech Export Bank, EGAP, the CZECH TOP 100 Association, and White&Case.

The objective of the project is to increase the awareness of PBS as a supplier of solutions for liquid separation and waste management in Latin American countries, to find proven partners for cooperation with knowledge of the local market and contacts to waste water purification plant researchers. PBS Velka Bites, within its decantation centrifuge programme, has intensified its business-marketing activities in the Latin American market in this year – it exported one decantation centrifuge to Columbia, participated in the Engineering Fair in Bogota, and plans to find strategic partners in other Latin American countries too.

The festive announcement of the results of this year’s competition took place within the scope of a gala evening in the Large Congress Hall of the Czech National Bank. The project of Prvni brnenska strojirna Velka Bites placed in the Top 3 export projects in the “Czech Export Hope” category among large companies. “The winners of this year’s International Business Awards may be a model. They are an example of excellent Czech firms that provide high quality, technologically advanced products to purchasers from all over the world. They are ambitious, innovative, and they know how to balance risks and opportunities,” said Michael Hordley, General Manager of HSBC bank in the Czech Republic.

PBS Velka Bites decided to participate in the HSBC International Business Awards with the goal of linking two significant brands – PBS and HSBC; brands connected by their exacting attitude to work. “We believed that we had a chance to break through high with our project because it is a project that solves the existing and the future situation of water and waste management. The ranking in the competition is a great honour for us. We appreciate the publicity our project has received thanks to the HSBC International Business Awards,” stated Katerina Fisova, Marketing Department Manager of PBS Velka Bites.
