More about the Export Council

The total UK market in active, passive and fire fighting is in excess of £3 bn per annum. It is estimated that UK companies in these sectors already export around £600 m per annum to countries all over the world.

The FIA has 60 'FIA Exporters', some being smaller companies looking to expand their export interests while many are world-leading companies that have considerable export experience.

The elected Council of 15 members is led by Chair Michelle Agius and Vice-Chair Sarah Adamson. For more information contact the FIA Export Manager Dave Smith.
