Rock Fall Export Success In Slovenia

Rock Fall UK is the UK's largest safety footwear brand for supplying into heavy duty industries and harsh environments. Formed in 1997, the company now produces styles for use in diverse range of industries including, Automotive, Electronics, Construction, Utilities, Cold Stores, Foundries and the Chemical Industry.

Due to consistent year on year growth in the UK, we decided in 2015 to expand our presence abroad and successfully developed partnerships with large distributors in Kenya, Nigeria, Australia, Philippines and the UAE.

With the success of the above international distributors, Richard Noon, Director of Rock Fall UK, aimed to establish distributors a little closer to home in Europe. The main countries in Europe such as France, Italy and Germany, although large users of Safety Footwear are incredibly competitive and saturated with manufacturers and brands of safety footwear. Based on this, Richard decided to attend a seminar in Leicestershire whereby he could meet and introduce his product range to Chambers in Europe but in countries such as Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia and Poland.

Richard met Aleksandra Barie, the trade adviser working for the British Slovenian Chamber of Commerce {BSCC} Aleksandra invited Richard to the Sports Meets Business Event which saw the England football team play Slovenia. Before the match, Richard attended a number of meetings with potential distributors that Aleksandras team had scheduled. The Slovenian Chamber managed to arrange 6 high quality appointments with some of the most prestigious Slovenian distributo rsin our market. Aleksandra also booked hotels and transport making the trip incredibly easy and straight forward. All we had to worry about is making a good impression at each of the appointments!

The team at the BSCC have been extremely supportive and attentive throughout the whole process, we have already started business with one of the distributors and our first year sales forecast for this one account is £80,000.00.
