Their achievement came from a 12% increase in export operations and keeping the prices of their excellent quality saw blades at more competitive level than any other saw blade supplier.

The Managing Director Chris Walker says: ‘Now that the Pound has stabilised more against Euro at a lower exchange rate, our Made in Sheffield TCT blades are competitively priced than blades produced by other European manufacturers.

The W10 Exhibition which took place in NEC Birmingham in October has also helped the company to win new customers and obtain many sales leads from the UK. The company is very happy about the outcome of the exhibition and looking to the future more positive with the businesses new they won.

The Sheffield based company is also increasing its export sales by expanding into new markets. In 2010, the export sales increased by 12 %. Atkinson-Walker (Saws) has started trading with a large distributor in Turkey and is very optimistic about increasing its sales in Turkish market by the end of 2011. They are also quite confident about entering into other world markets where they believe there is high demand for saw blades.
