Blackman & White make the Evening News

By Blackman & White on July 25th, 2019

Blackman & White Managing Director Alex White was invited to participate in a segment on the Channel 5 News last night. The focus of the article was the Prime Minister’s approach to Brexit, and as a business owner and Managing Director, Alex was able to portray his positive outlook.

As a significant exporter of specialised cutting machines, Blackman & White ship their product all over the globe and import components for their machines from various overseas markets. This makes Blackman and White an authority on the import and export process, which is what brought them to the attention of the producers at Channel 5.

In a segment that aired on last night’s evening news, Alex outlined his confident perspective and the fact that there needs to be more positivity around the whole Brexit process. Echoing the sentiments of the Prime Minister, Alex confirmed that people would be best served to embrace the process and to see the opportunities Brexit can deliver in a glass half full approach to the situation.

Alex White, Managing Director, commented, “For the long term, I can see some significant advantages in being separated from the EU, making partnerships with other countries and looking towards a future with some of the emerging economies in the commonwealth.”

Alex expanded on these points by saying, “Brexit is an emotive subject at the moment but pragmatically a line in the sand needs to be drawn on the 31st October. A definite decision and a date are needed to give everybody the opportunity to get on and make plans to achieve the best possible outcome for the economy. The chances for a second referendum are slight and would only cause uncertainty for another 3 years so embracing the process to get the best possible outcome is only logical.”
