The SBH UK+Ireland advises and supports small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) from Switzerland and Liechtenstein wishing to explore and seize export opportunities in the markets of the United Kingdom and Ireland.
As part of the Embassy of Switzerland in the United Kingdom, the SBH UK+Ireland is responsible for implementing Swiss export strategies in the two markets and for promoting Switzerland as a business location.
The Swiss Business Hub UK+Ireland provides localized support, market information, and consulting and networking services to Swiss companies venturing into the British and Irish markets. An experienced team of trade commissioners is ready to support inquiries of all kinds and serves as a first-hand local contact for companies - new or experienced - in the markets. A client-centred attitude and the flexibility to offer bespoke services uniquely position the SBH to meet and support a company’s business requirements.
In addition, the Swiss Business Hub actively promotes Switzerland as a highly attractive business and investment location for UK- and Ireland-based companies looking for growth in Switzerland and Europe.
The Swiss Business Hub UK+Ireland has a first-rate network of contacts in both the Anglo-Celtic Isles and Switzerland, and provides support to most industries. Our specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to, biotech, medtech, consumer goods, food and beverages, machine building, cleantech and IT. The functions and specializations of the employees of the SBH are described in the SBH Team section.
