KEIBA 2013 - WINNER - Success in International Markets
Scarab is delighted to have won the KEiBA 2013 award for Success in International Markets.  

The judges praised the Company's willingness to go beyond just selling sweepers, and provide committed after-care and welcomed its measured risk-taking to gain new contracts.  Scarab export machines to over 30 countries, including Russia, Saudi Arabia and Malaysia, which now accounts for 75% of the business turnover.

And with key developments, such as offering sweepers in kit form that can be containerised in multiples for shipment around the world. This has not only cut freight costs but enabled the local dealer to reduce import duties. Scarab takes an innovative approach to overseas markets by examining each country for cultural, behavioural, climate and technological characteristics and tailoring products to meet them.

Well done to all the Staff at Scarab our Distributors and Suppliers who have all helped us achieve this fantastic award.
