Gary will discuss MJM’s Export Success Story including his experiences on how the company has grown business in international markets and will provide advice on aspects of commercial development through export.

MJM Group is a leading international specialist in interior fit out, refurbishment, refit and services, offering comprehensive and turnkey solutions to clients in the marine, commercial and private sectors.

Speaking ahead of the event, Gary Annett, Chief Executive of MJM Group, said:

“MJM Group is the world leader in the refit and refurbishment of ferries and cruise ships and is proud to work with the largest cruise and ferry companies in the world.  We have also established a strong and growing land-based portfolio which includes the K Club and Adare Manor. While our Head-quarters is in Newry, MJM Group is a truly global company, with our work spanning 5 continents and countries too numerous to mention.  Almost 100% of our business is export and we were delighted to have our success acknowledged this year by winning both the Belfast Telegraph Excellence in Exports and the Aer Lingus Viscount Awards Exporter of the Year.  We are delighted to welcome members of NI Chamber to MJM Group to share some of our experiences.”

Commenting on the event, Ann McGregor, Chief Executive of NI Chamber, said:

“In terms of global success, Northern Ireland companies such as MJM Group have proven time and time again that they can punch well above their weight on the world stage through innovative thinking, quality products, effective strategies and sheer drive and determination.

“We are delighted that our members will have an opportunity to hear from Gary Annet and his team as we seek to encourage and grow export activity in Northern Ireland through inspirational stories and shared learning of these successful exporters.”

Aaron Ennis, Head of North Business centre at Danske Bank, added:

“This company visit will be a great opportunity to gain an insight into how one of Northern Ireland’s most successful export businesses operates. Brian McConville and his team have built MJM Group into an industry leading business, with products, craftsmanship and expertise that is recognised by a diverse client base around the world. Danske Bank Export First provides an excellent resource to learn from companies with unrivalled experience of selling into external markets and I have no doubt this visit to MJM Group will be hugely valuable.”
