December 4th, 2013; JAXUSA Partnership, the economic development division of the JAX Chamber, presented its annual International Awards, sponsored by BBVA Compass Bank, during the JAXUSA Quarterly Luncheon today at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront.




"We congratulate our International Award winners for their leadership as global business partners", said JAXUSA Partnership President Jerry Mallot. "Their success speaks directly to our region's strategic eastern seaboard location, excellent workforce and business advantages. For these reasons, our region is rapidly becoming a significant international business center."


Since its official launch in February 2013 (Website launch November 2012), Oxford Products USA has experienced significant growth. The company, a manufacturer of motorcycle accessories, has rapidly grown it's US distribution network with hundreds of motorcycle dealers in 27 States already selling its products. The company choose Jacksonville as it's US HQ because of the region’s deep water Port, available talent, quality of life and ease of access to South America and the United Kingdom.


Eric McFarlane (General Manager) moved from Scotland to America along with his family in 2012, and with the help of his wife Karen (middle top picture), began work establishing Oxford's US domestic distribution center as well as setting up additional distribution lines to South America. The Company now has trade lines operating with six South American countries.


"I am honoured to accept this award on behalf of Oxford Products USA who are a small but highly motivated team of people", said Eric McFarlane after receiving the award from JAXUSA International Committee Chair, Giselle Carson. "We are all excited about the growth potential the US market has to offer, particularly as our product range is expanding and taking us into additional market sectors".
