An engineering firm from south east Northumberland, which operates on a global scale, has picked up an award for its efforts.
Baric Systems, based in Blyth, supplies high-specification fluid handling systems for lubrication applications in the oil and gas, petrochemical and power generation markets.
Managing director Paul Lewis said: “We are very pleased to be receiving this award and we are proud to be representing Blyth and Northumberland as I personally think it is excellent that local manufacturing businesses get this opportunity to be recognised.
“I really appreciate the efforts of all of the employees at Blyth as without them we wouldn’t be receiving this award.
“We are delighted to receive this award and we would like to thank the people who nominated us and the judges for selecting our business.”
The firm picked up the Export Award, sponsored by the Port of Blyth, beating off competition from RPC Containers, Kilfrost and Dunlop Oils.
