The GTR-BExA Young Exporter Award for 2019 was awarded to Clare Hunter for her work driving the export strategy and global presence of Coltraco Ultrasonics, a designer and manufacturer of ultrasonic safety and monitoring instrumentation.
Hunter, who has worked for the company for eight years and leads Coltraco’s marketing and communications team, and coordinates its global network, says that winning the award has been “tremendous”. Coltraco exports to 120 different markets, with overseas trade making up nearly 90% of the manufacturer’s output.
In this video, Hunter tells GTR reporter Maddy White how Brazil has been a key trade focus for her, that “confidence” is key for young people looking to become involved in trade and how important it is for women to take up speaking opportunities because “you can’t be what you can’t see”.

"The Chinese often say that encounter is a fate. I met Coltraco at the end of 2015. With the efforts of both parties, we have made breakthroughs in various fields in China. In this special period (covid-2019), I hope we can get through the difficulties together for a better future."
"I am always happy when I am with Coltraco. They are one of the nicest people I have ever known. Coltraco is "Small but Strong". That is our comapny motto, too. The devotion for the good service are shown by their sincerity and professional enthusiasm. I am sure Coltraco is one of the best role models in Engliand with Brexit."
