A Birmingham-based company’s success in exporting its coffee-making machines to all five continents has won them national recognition.

Fracino celebrated its  50th anniversary by scooping the Outstanding Export Award from the prestigious EEF Future Manufacturing Awards panel  and  later went on to win the ultimate award, the Winner of Winners.

“I am delighted to congratulate the management and staff of the UK’s only manufacturer of cappuccino and espresso coffee machines on their achievements,” said Birmingham Conservative MEP, Anthea McIntyre.

“It is great news for Fracino and is further proof that UK manufacturers are amongst the best in the world.

“In my role as the Conservative Employment spokesman in Europe, I am particularly keen to highlight the successes of our local businesses and to do whatever I can to help them thrive.”
