Automated cross-cut demand increases in the UK, says Daltons Wadkin

10 April 2018

Daltons Wadkin has noted an increase in demand for automated cross-cut saws in the UK.

“A pattern of demand has clearly emerged over the past few years,” said Alex Dalton, director of Daltons Wadkin.

“Customers are seeking higher productivity machines, solutions that allow them to reach ever-higher levels of quality in a shorter time.”

The company is the sole agent and distributor for Salvador in the UK and Ireland and its sales manager Christian Salvador echoes Daltons Wadkin’s view.

“We had an extremely positive 2017 that has confirmed, even to those who still had doubts, that the crisis is over,” he said.

“Within the last few years we have doubled our turnover, broadened the range of cross-cutting solutions, raised the technological level of our machines and started new entrepreneurial experiences.”

Mr Salvador added that as well as success in the UK and Ireland, the company had seen very good returns on its investments in eastern Europe and positive signs in the former Soviet Union countries and Ukraine.

“The Balkan market area is going well, Scandinavia even better, returning to levels of high interest; the Romanian market is an area of great excitement and we’ve also got excellent news in North America.

“All this has helped us become who are today, with a turnover of close to €6m.”

Daltons Wadkin will exhibit the latest line of Salvador cross-cutting machines at this year’s W Exhibition, which takes place from September 30 to October 3 at the NEC, Birmingham.
