Responsible Business Champions in ‘Glocal’ Trade
15 March 2017
Further to the recent official opening of an additional manufacturing, stockholding and distribution facility, Tidyco Ltd has been nominated for a Parliamentary Responsible Business Champions Award by Amanda Solloway MP for Derby North.
The Award Nomination is unique in that only MPs can nominate companies as their Constituency Responsible Business Champions, which distinguishes this scheme from all other business awards.
Derby based Tidyco Ltd has been supplying hydraulic and pneumatic products to the UK rail industry for over 40 years and is a well known business within the local community.
Furthermore, the company continues to diversify by offering reactive mobile hydraulic replacement services as well as provide complete HVAC solutions through the delivery of; design, supply, installation and on-going maintenance packages to a wide variety of local private and public sector organisations.
Currently developing a dedicated export strategy to support long term growth plans, Tidyco Ltd understands the need to initiate a comprehensive Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme so as to trade ethically in a ‘glocal’ (global and local) market place.
Barry Aldridge MCIM – Marketing Manager for Tidyco Ltd, explains; “Corporate Social Responsibility continues to be of significant importance regarding how businesses can best operate in an ethical manner, so as to minimise environmental impact and the way in which we support our combined communities.”
He says; “I am really pleased to have worked on a dedicated CSR Statement of Intent manual as well as all supporting policies and procedures.
Tidyco Ltd is committed to delivering a best in class customer service whilst complying with its commitment to CSR.”
In a matter of only six months, Tidyco Ltd has experienced significant success regarding export activity.
Since the initial launch of the Tidyco Ltd Online Store in September 2016, 50% of online transactions are for the international market and this figure is growing.
Tidyco Ltd has enjoyed nurturing business growth within the following global market places:
EMEA Market: Germany | Italy | Netherlands| Denmark | Finland | France | Norway
Far East Market: Malaysia | Hong Kong | Singapore | Thailand
Tidyco Ltd regularly exports in to the USA, Canada, Brazil as well as Australia.
“From a marketing standpoint, re-positioning a traditionally localised corporate identity as a well known global brand within an international trading arena is a marketer’s dream come true.
"However, the organisation recognises that it needs to continuously adhere to ethical trading practices on both a global as well as local (glocal) level.
"Digital application is critical to the on-going growth of export and as such, cyber crime forms part of the Tidyco Ltd CSR Statement of Intent.”
Barry continues; “Important too, is the need to enhance our local community. Tidyco Ltd regularly supports local charities as well as good causes and is committed to enhancing business relations with local public sector organisations.”
The Tidyco Ltd CSR Statement of Intent addresses the following subject matters:
• Health & Safety
• The Environment
• Ethical ‘Glocal’ Trading
• Cyber Security and Data Protection
• Continuity and Transparency of Supply
• Protection and Safeguarding
The winners of the Parliamentary Business Champions Award will be announced in May 2017.
