Nordfab Ducting has expanded its manufacturing and production capacity at its facility in Leeds, England, which the company claims will help to provide faster delivery to customers in the United Kingdom.

To promote the expanded capacity and introduce Nordfab products to prospective customers, the company teamed members of its U.S. and Swedish sales force with its British sales team in a weeklong blitz to call on nearly 250 sales prospects.

“Economic conditions are slowing sales and growth at many businesses around the world, but Nordfab Ducting is continuing to grow and expand,” said Tom Ballus, Nordfab division manager. “Our U.K. facility recently invested in a new plasma welder, a bend machine and tooling jigs, advancements that allow us to offer our British customers high-quality, clamp-together ducting in the sizes most commonly requested - and at competitive prices. And with the help of our U.S. and Swedish sales forces, we were able to promote these improvements to customers throughout the United Kingdom with a highly successful promotional campaign.”

Nordfab held the international sales blitz May 11-15 in the United Kingdom, pairing eight salesmen from the United States with 10 sales representatives from the United Kingdom and Sweden.

“By having the salesmen from our U.S. and Swedish facilities participate in the sales blitz and supplement our U.K. sales force, we were able to visit the same number of customers in one week that we could normally see in six months or a year,” said Darren Wood, finance manager for Nordfab Ducting’s U.K. operations.
