Three things to know about KMB:

  • KMB worked with national government to produce a video about trading with the EU. Paul Hull spoke in the video, issued by the Cabinet Office, offering practical advice to UK firms doing business with the European Union, post-Brexit.
  • In 2021 KMB won a Queen’s Award for Enterprise, for excellence in international trade. In this video, recorded for the Sandwell Business Ambassadors, Paul explains how the prestigious win raised KMB’s turnover on international orders by 25 per cent.

And a fun fact about KMB: 

The three owners all started work directly from school at the age of sixteen with no college or university experience. They all worked their way up from teaboys to owners.
