Trumpf has reported that just over 300 people attended the company’s In-Tech open house in the UK, the highest attendance ever recorded. The company received £5m worth of orders over the three-day event, spanning the whole range of the company's machines and technologies.
With the addition of the In-Tech orders, March 2011 was Trumpf’s highest-earning month ever. By comparison with March 2010, order intake was 50 per cent higher. 'Our success is indicative of how well our customers are doing,' explained technical director, Scott Simpson. 'Many are near to maximum production and they are investing in new manufacturing technology to support this upturn.' The export market in particular is proving a real money-spinner for many Trumpf customers.'
Trumpf has not only witnessed unprecedented demand for new machines and its expanded services; since formalising a co-operation with Severn Manufacturing Systems, a specialist in the refurbishment of second-hand Trumpf machines, Trumpf has directly sold 20 units. This initiative has already contributed more than £2.5m to turnover at Trumpf UK. Additionally, staff levels at Trumpf UK are at an all time high and the company has confirmed that they have taken on another two apprentices.
