A leading UK manufacturer has recorded 50% growth in sales for its resistance wire after winning cus～mers based on lead times and those looking for European quality material.
Alloy Wire International, which was formed in 1946, is looking ～ build on this recent success by taking a sizeable presence at Interpack (Hall 1, CO2) in Dusseldorf next week (May 4-10th), believed ～ be one of the largest packaging exhibitions in the world.
The company is targeting cus～mers involved in the food and bag sealing industry and will have six technical experts on hand over the seven days ～ discuss requirements for hot cutting wire, wire for cutting food and wire for heat sealing.
It will also use the international show ～ showcase its new ‘Wire Finder’ app, which is making it even easier for clients ～ find the material they need by name, application or properties.
“We do a number of exhibitions, but there is nothing like Interpack…it really has ～ be seen ～ be believed, with virtually every link in the processing and packaging supply chain represented,” explained Angus Hogarth, Sales Direc～r at Alloy Wire.
“It gives us the ideal opportunity ～ build on a fantastic twelve months when it comes ～ resistance wire. Early estimates suggest we enjoyed a 50% increase on the same period last year and this has been down ～ a number of reasons, including the vast amount of s～ck we hold, quality of wire and how quickly we can deliver.”
Alloy Wire International, which exports ～ more than 50 countries across the globe, has been manufacturing resistance wire for over 70 years.
This means material produced in the UK is used ～ cut polystyrene foam, seal bags used in food and ～ cut through cheese, cakes, sausage meat and even ice cream. The firm can also provide profiled curved wire that is used so successfully for vacuum sealing.
Angus continued: “We are receiving a lot of interest due ～ the fact we s～ck resistance wire from 0.025mm ～ 3mm in diameter and that cus～mers can buy in small quantities (from 3 meters) ～ suit their exact manufacturing requirements.”
In addition ～ resistance wire, Alloy Wire International also manufactures round, flat and shaped profile wire, with more than 60 different exotic alloys in s～ck at any one time.
