Somerset-based wire rope company, Tecni-Cable Ltd is celebrating this week with the announcement of a major milestone – its first five years in business.
The company, based at the Walrow Industrial Estate in Highbridge, has grown rapidly and now employs eight full-time members of staff. It was recently voted Somerset E-Business of the year.
Managing Director, Trevor Heyworth attributes the success of the company to sound e-marketing principles and putting the customer first at all times. "In 2004 I realised that there was a great opportunity to use the internet to sell wire rope products.
"Setting up the website was initially daunting and it took over five months to receive our first online order, but by continuing to reinvest in new product lines and expanding organically, sales have virtually doubles each year since start-up.
"As well as stocking large quantities of wire rope and fittings, we now have four hydraulic presses and a testing rig which means that we can manufacture assemblies in-house to a customer’s specification."
Tecni-Cable is a market-leading specialist in miniature PVC & Nylon-coated stainless & galvanised wire rope products, and welcomes orders and enquiries from all business sectors including private individuals. Its key areas of expertise include supplying cable for balustrading, garden design, shop fittings, exhibitions and gym equipment.
Trevor Heyworth continues, "Our proudest moment was winning the Somerset Business Award in the category of Best e-Business – which confirms the quality and dedication that we have all put in to the development of our business."
