Exeter based Mantracourt Electronics has announced a 25% growth in sales for 2013. With product sales of £3.3m, and direct exports making up 45% of this total, Mantracourt has further established its lead role in the design and manufacture of instrumentation technology.
Mantracourt is a world leader in the design and manufacture of electronics for measurement technologies, including strain gauge, temperature, resistance, pressure, voltage, current, potentiometer, rate, flow, LVDT and displacement in either analogue, digital or wireless form. With a reputation for innovative design and quality of products, Mantracourt is a key OEM supplier for a diverse range of industries.
Mantracourt attributes its success to the growth in demand for its wireless instrumentation range (T24), for which it saw a 63% increase in sales revenue. In addition to this, Mantracourt has expanded its global technical partner network whereby their products are supplied to sensor and instrumentation companies in over 30 locations worldwide.
"We are very excited to announce these results," said Jonathan Purdue, Sales Manager at Mantracourt. "Our development team works closely with industry, enabling us to create leading edge instrumentation that works well in the real world. This, coupled with our in house support team and our expert technical partners (distributors), has enabled us to retain existing customers whilst attracting new ones."
During 2013 Mantracourt invested in a new pick and place machine, as well as further investing in the development of new products such as its
USB strain converter (DSCUSB).
"2013 also saw Mantracourt develop special load monitoring technology for the entertainment sector," said Jonathan Purdue. "I think that it is the company’s willingness to explore new solutions, and new relationships within the industry, that is enabling us to grow so consistently."
Based near Exeter in the South-West of England, Mantracourt was awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade in 2009 and now has a product range of over 1,000 designs.
