The award recognises so much more than sales growth; the fact that Drumlord have seen an increase in sales of over 50% compared to last year is only a small part of the story. In the past year Drumlord have increased their customer base by 25% (50% in 3 years), grown substantially in the Medical sector (71% increase over 2010), increased Vacuum Casting throughput by 97% and managed to invest in a number of areas of the business including Vacuum Casting and Spray Painting as well as recruiting new staff.
In tough times such steps have been sustainable and based on a long term strategy to win, and retain, new customers while maintaining the level of quality and service to our existing clients. Our customers are an integral part of Drumlord's business and, as such, played a huge role in our winning this award - thank you, all.
