British Chamber of Commerce names What More UK “2020 Business Hero”

The British Chamber of Commerce has recognised the fantastic work of What More UK for their contribution to national commerce and the fight against Covid-19.

Since the outbreak of Covid-19, Lancashire housewares manufacturer, What More UK has done everything it can to support its customers, its staff, and the country. They’ve made a strong positive contribution which has been officially recognised by the British Chamber of Commerce.

The British Chamber of Commerce is the central body connecting and representing all 52 regional Chambers in the country. They operate the UK Business Heroes campaign which recognises British businesses that have gone above and beyond the call of duty to support their local community during the Coronavirus outbreak.

Since March this year What More UK has not stopped working, in fact, they’ve gone into overdrive. The company has expanded its export network first to Costa Rica, and then to Sri Lanka. They’ve taken on more than 40 new staff members and even put on extra shifts to keep the country’s shelves stocked.

With all of those things going on in the background the exemplary organisation has also found time and resources to devote to producing personal protective equipment for the NHS.

Company Director Tony Grimshaw OBE commented: “We’re very grateful to the Chamber of Commerce for this recognition. It’s a great boost for us and we want to thank everyone involved.”

“What More is a great name for our company because it reminds us never to stop working, never to be complacent. Building a company with a good reputation and being a good corporate citizen means thinking beyond the next business deal. It means asking yourself what more can we do?”

“We’re very lucky to have a phenomenal team working for us. The Lancashire labour force is legendary and it’s because of that we can go the extra mile.”
