Worldwide demand for LPW Technology’s high-quality metal powders and the innovative end-to-end hardware and software solutions it has created for the Additive Manufacturing industry has propelled it into the prestigious Sunday Times Lloyds SME Export Track 100 for the second year running.
The league table ranks the UK’s small and medium-sized (SME) companies with the fastest-growing international sales, and LPW, the global leader in the manufacture, development and processing of metal powders, is the only metal AM company to appear.
“LPW is manufacturing for a global market,” comments Dr Phil Carroll, LPW’s CEO. “We differentiate our offering through technical understanding of metal powders for Additive Manufacturing, consistency in our materials and excellent customer service, and this has ensured our overseas customer base has expanded year on year. We’re very pleased to be included among the 100 top-performing SME UK exporters.”
A recipient of the Queen’s Award for Excellence in International Trade 2016, LPW has a thriving research and development program to enable it to anticipate the future needs of this fast-growing disruptive technology. It is poised to move into its new £20 million purpose-built factory of the future near Liverpool, UK, in the next few weeks, to continue to service the growing metal AM market.
LPW’s US subsidiary has also relocated to a larger facility in Pennsylvania. Add its growing global network of professional resellers to this international focus and it can be seen why export sales have grown by 30% in the last 12 months alone. To find out more about LPW visit www.lpwtechnology.com
