AWI kicks off 2019 with ‘best ever’ £1M

11 February 2019

A leading UK manufacturing specialist is casting aside the uncertainty of Brexit by recording its best ever month in its 73-year history.

Alloy Wire International (AWI), which supplies more than 60 different ‘High Performance’ nickel alloys, has secured over £1.2M of sales in January, shipping 339 individual orders to customers in 27 different countries.

Boosted by a new quoting system, the company has seen demand for its wire emanate from clients in the automotive, aerospace, oil and gas and nuclear sectors, with many citing AWI’s 3-week lead time commitment as being crucial to their manufacturing operations.

Despite all of the negativity of Brexit negotiations, a significant proportion of new work has come from within the EU.

Alloy Wire International makes round, flat and profile wire in a range of material that is growing by the month, with more than 60 currently available to choose from, each offering superior corrosion resistance and/or excellent performance at high temperatures.

In order to build on the year-on-year growth, the company has also signed off a £250,000 investment that will see the arrival of three new machines to boost speed, repeatable quality and capacity.
