AWI wins large US order prior to major show

Alloy Wire International (AWI) the UK’s foremost manufacturer of round, flat and profile wire is heading to Wire 2024 off the back of one of its largest ever export orders.

The company, which is taking its 60-strong range of exotic alloys to the show in Dusseldorf running from April (15-19th), has just sealed a $400,000 contract with a US springmaker to supply a high strength nickel cobalt alloy.

The DFARS compliant material will be used in an aerospace application that requires heat and corrosion resistance, with the company chosen for its world class quality and the ability to process the order in just a matter of weeks.

It is these two qualities, along with a sector-leading 400 tonne stockholding, that AWI will be promoting at the show in Germany.

The company will be represented by staff from the UK and agents from Germany, Italy, and the US.

Tom Mander, managing director of Alloy Wire International, commented: “Wire 2024 is the biggest global show in our sector, so it is great news that we are heading there after winning such a sizeable order.

“It illustrates how UK manufacturers can remain competitive through investment in the latest technology and a commitment to work with our customers to deliver exceptional technical advice and access to significant amounts of stock at short notice.”

He continued: “The US order really does typify what AWI is about. We received the enquiry about two months ago, went back with a quote, agreed the deal, and processed the large quantity and despatched it in a matter of weeks.

“Wire 2024 gives us another opportunity to take our key selling points to a global audience and we’ve invested heavily in creating our biggest stand yet and a timeline that charts some of the big moments in our 78-year history.”

Alloy Wire International manufactures round, flat and profile wire in 60 exotic alloys, such as Inconel, Monel, Hastelloy, Nimonic and Waspaloy.

From its two factories in the West Midlands and Yorkshire, the company continues to be a critical supplier to the UK manufacturing sector whilst also growing its export business, which currently accounts for nearly 55% of its £17.9m sales.

This means AWI now supplies 6,000 customers across 50 countries and 15 different market sectors.

AWI will be exhibiting in Hall 11, Stand E26 at the show.
