Sheet metal processing machinery supplier, Bystronic, reports that May 2014 was its best ever month for order intake in the UK, at just short of £7 million.
Orders were received from all areas of industry, from job shops to yellow goods manufacturers to architecture. All of Bystronic’s CNC product portfolio was in demand, including laser profiling machines, water jet cutters and press brakes.
David Larcombe, Managing Director of Bystronic UK commented, “Our recent sales success is yet another sign that the UK is pulling strongly out of recession and that manufacturing continues to lead the way.
“Particularly pleasing was the range of sectors represented and of machine types ordered, indicating that the recovery is broadly based.
“An interesting statistic is that of the 10 laser cutting machines sold, eight were Fiber Laser machines and two were CO2. For speed when cutting all materials but especially thinner gauges, our fibre technology is proving its worth in the market.”
