New export drive for hi-tech tool company

Have your say

DORMER Tools is expanding its Advanced Manufacturing Park-based commercial exports operations and targeting large export orders.

The AMP-based Dormer Tools International business already sells more items than any other Dormer Tools site, apart from its US operation, and accounts for a fifth of the group’s overall global sales.

Regional business area manager John Eustace said: “We have grown rapidly in recent years and our turnover has doubled compared with five years ago.

“To support our continued growth we will work with our extensive assortment of distributors to purchase Dormer products in large volume. In past years we have concentrated on supplying the high-end range of cutting tools. Our objective now is on providing multi-application tooling.”

Dormer Tools International has in excess of 250 distributors in more than 40 markets around the world and is hoping to significantly expand its market in the Far East.

John Eustace highlights opportunities in Singapore, which he says is ‘a huge market for Dormer and a fantastic trading hub for key locations across the whole of the Far East region’.

The company has established partnerships in Vietnam and Hong Kong and is targeting other locations after securing a new distributor in Turkey and building relationships in Sub-Saharan African nations.
