Bexprt celebrates receiving UK Government award for Digital Exports

17th May 2023 – Wokingham, UK & Riyadh, KSA – UK-based technology business, Bexprt, today announced that it has been recognised by the UK Government and the Institute of Export & International Trade with a Made in the UK, Sold to the World award for Digital Exports

The inaugural awards recognise and celebrate the global trading success of UK businesses, and were judged by Senior Officials at the UK Government Department for Business & Trade, and Marco Forgione, Director General of the Institute of Export & International Trade (IOE&IT). [1]  In the Digital Exports category, Bexprt is one of three UK businesses awarded Highly Commended status “for their inspiring business stories and exporting prowess”. [2] 

The UK is the world’s second-largest exporter of digitally delivered services, valued at over £252 billion in 2021. [3]  Exports minister Andrew Bowie said the awards are an “excellent way of celebrating some fantastic businesses punching above their weight” in international markets. [1]  

Bexprt, an independent UK business, enables clients with technology-driven business transformation, via cloud consulting and services, ICT professional services, cyber security services, and business consulting. 

“Congratulations to our fellow ‘Made in the UK, Sold to the World’ award winners!,” commented Bexprt CEO and Founder, Mo Hamdy. “I’m thrilled that Bexprt has received this UK Export Award. We celebrated our 5th year in business this Spring, and as a specialist UK technology company, it has been an exciting and dynamic time to trade internationally. Our turnover has quadrupled in 4 years, and over 90% of our revenue is generated from international trade.” 

Founded in Wokingham in March 2018, and entirely self-funded, Bexprt has projects in 16 countries across 4 continents, and employs an expert team of 23 staff from 8 nationalities, who together speak more than 10 languages. 

“Everything Bexprt delivers enables businesses and clients to work together more efficiently. International trade is vital to Bexprt’s success, and has been a core part of our approach and strategic plan since day one. As well as working for clients in traditional UK export markets, such as the US, Ireland and Germany, we also trade in Cameroon and Uzbekistan amongst others, plus we have significant business in Saudi Arabia and the wider Gulf region.”

With increasing business in the Middle East and Africa, Bexprt opened its first international branch in December 2022 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Today, the business is actively engaged with key tier 1 partners, in cloud and telecom services. In January, Bexprt achieved ‘AWS Partner Select’ status, and became the fastest-growing partner for Amazon Web Services in the Gulf region.

Mo commented, “As we accelerate the number of clients we work with, and deliver innovative, sustainable, and cost-optimised solutions, it’s good to take a moment to reflect on the success this expert team has achieved, and the large number of international opportunities this UK technology business has in its pipeline.”

“Our achievements in the last 6 months – new Saudi company, new offices in Riyadh, our growing partnership and status with AWS, and strong business wins across the telecom, cloud and ICT sectors – are very significant. We’re really humbled to receive this award; it’s brilliant public recognition of the team’s expertise and hard work. Thank you to our clients and partners for their trust in Bexprt.”
