Erodex celebrates 20% growth

Erodex, a specialist in the provision of EDM supplies, graphites and graphite machining, is celebrating 20% growth over the past 12 months, following a period of substantial investment.

The company has invested a total of £1.75m in machinery and premises as part of an expansion strategy which has included record orders for a newly formed tool room and diversification in product ranges. The growth is the third year in a row that the company has set record levels for total revenue, and includes the company bolstering its workforce with an additional 17 employees.
Director Steve Rolinson says: “We are extremely pleased with the progress of the company over the past 12 months, not only with regard to the ongoing success of the new tool room following our investment in that, but also in increased market penetration for the provision of our graphite materials and EDM supplies.
“We are on a constant journey to help our customers improve processes,” he continues. “For example, we recently reached an exclusive agreement with Houghton International to handle all UK distribution for their dielectric EDM fluids. For 15 years we have been supplying a product made in Canada called Commonwealth Dielectric EDM 244 and Super Supreme. The company producing that was acquired by Houghton and the production of that dielectric has now been brought back to the UK. We are extremely pleased that Houghton demonstrated such confidence in us by establishing our own exclusive agreement with them.”
