Hansford Sensors, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high performance industrial accelerometers, has been recognised for its export achievements, winning a prestigious EEF Future Manufacturing Award, in the South East region.

The EEF Future Manufacturing Awards celebrate the success of manufacturers across the UK and attract a high standard of entries from some of the country’s leading industrial companies. Among these, Hansford Sensors has stood out for its longstanding focus on building an extremely successful UK manufacturing business, which currently exports 90% of its products worldwide.

Managing Director, Chris Hansford, is delighted with the recent award: “Over the last few years we’ve transformed our business, opening subsidiaries in Germany, Poland, India and the USA, while working with carefully selected partners in many other countries. We’ve also developed an extremely effective sales, marketing and technical support programme, which enables us to help customers meet the challenges of vibration monitoring in a wide range of demanding industrial applications.

“As a result, we’ve built our export business from just 20% of turnover, to over 90%. At the same time, we’ve increased sales by around 20% year on year, doubled the size of our UK production and customer support operation and created a growing number of engineering, managerial and administrative jobs.”

Hansford Sensors will now be going forward to the National EEF Future Manufacturing Awards in December.
