UK wing mirror supplier moves into export market
The UK’s leading supplier of wing mirrors, based in Bury, Lancashire, is entering the export market, taking its product to numerous countries, including Australia, Brazil, Singapore, Japan, Malta, Norway and France. Wing Mirror Man started in January 2006 and provides new wing mirrors to the public and trade. It supplies mirrors suitable for 29 vehicle manufacturers, covering more than 500 car models, and in excess of 4,000 different types and makes of wing mirrors.
Last year, Wing Mirror Man started to sell its own branded mirrors, while it more recently diversified its product range to include lighting, window regulators and gas struts. The business employs 12 staff in Bury and sells primarily via its website and over the telephone.
Steven Speed, director of Wing Mirror Man, said: “Our overseas customers are finding us on the internet and realising that they can save on the prices they have to pay in their own country at car manufacturers or main dealers – even when they have to pay international shipping. As a result of our new export markets, we are planning to increase our product range in the near future.”
