Best half year for tool firm

Have your say

CNC machine tool distributors Ward Hi-Tech is celebrating its best half year since the company was founded, 28 years ago.

The company says 2011 was an exceptional year, in terms of high value machine sales, but it has already exceeded last year’s trading results.

“Our strategy of building market awareness of our growing range of larger frame machine tools has really paid dividends,” said UK sales manager Mike Burke.

“We set out to move more into the bigger end of the machine tool market during the depths of the recession three or four years ago and have not looked back.”

Ward Hi-Tech says it is planning for further growth next year and will be introducing several additional product lines in the coming months.

n Sheffield based CNC machine tool specialist, Ward Hi-Tech, has been appointed sole UK agents for the OKK range of high precision vertical, horizontal and five axis machining centres by France’s largest machine tool supplier Halbronn Machine Tools.
