Well-known company Black Country Saddles have plans to expand their business to China and have been developing relationships with the China-Britain Business Council.

BBC Midlands today visited their new premises interviewing Managing Director Mark Bryan and filming saddles being made while the export strategy is being worked on.

BBC Business Correspondent Peter Plisner and the camera crew filmed and interviewed Mark and the team.

Mark said,

“BBC Midlands wanted to put together a news piece about a specific and specialist business in the region looking to promote their products and services to China.

“We were delighted when they contacted us about coming here to film our work and talk about our plans."

“Filming with the BBC Midlands team was an exciting morning and although it proved to be quite nerve-wracking in front of the camera for everyone it was also a great opportunity to showcase the skills of our saddlery team and the growth of the business as a whole.”
