Miles Vartan Consultancy has rebranded as “Vartan”, with the change accompanying a move to new premises close to the Port of Felixstowe to accommodate continued expansion.

Vartan provides support on a wide range of compliance issues, including customs processing, transit and storage, Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) status, health and safety and ISO standards,

Miles Vartan, managing director, said: “We have experienced a steady increase in enquiries across the range of our service offerings and felt the time was right to refresh our brand.

“Vartan will continue to offer unrivalled expertise in supporting businesses across all industry sectors, assisting them manage their compliance and risk profile.”

The firm says that its relocation is part of its own “post-Brexit readiness strategy”, and that other companies also need to prepare.

“As companies look further afield to different markets and a new international stage on which to do business, having the required customs regime in place could be a key business advantage,” Mr Vartan added.

“Whilst we enjoy a reputation nationally, we believe our fresh look will assist in developing an international presence and will work well for us as the UK gets closer to leaving the EU.”
