With a growing list of class-leading suppliers on Altus’ books, Solderking was a natural choice. As specialists in the development and manufacture of regulatory compliant soldering assembly materials they were the first choice for Altus.
“Solderking has shown great performance since they were founded in 2018 driven by the enthusiasm of Chris Ward, company Director,” said Joe Booth Altus CEO.
‘’I have admired Solderking and the work Chris and the team have been doing for some time. They have built a brand through the pandemic and have had fantastic results to date, winning significant business away from much larger competitors with great products and superior customer support.
“For Altus, Solderking is an ideal partner due to the breadth of products they manufacture. Together with our extensive network of existing customers, the ability to immediately impact the consumables market and win business is imminent. The cherry on the top is that all the products are manufactured here in the UK which in itself, is something to get behind. I am delighted for Chris, and I am also looking forward to strengthening our offering across consumables so we can give our customers a full turnkey process.”
With Solderking products now added to the portfolio, Altus is already winning contracts away from the traditional incumbents due to the quality of the product, flexibility and speed of response time dealing with a UK supplier.
Joe said: “We are excited because we can partner our reach and market knowledge with the quality and performance of Solderking’s products. We are looking forward to presenting their products for the first time when we exhibit at the Southern Manufacturing and Electronics show next month.”
Chris Ward, Director at Solderking added: “This is a collaboration that we have been working on for a number of months and I am excited for the amount of potential this unlocks for Solderking, Altus Group and our growing customer base.
“It is already known that Solderking provides its customers with a high level of support, an essential requirement within our industry. Our model is matched by Altus who are leaders in the UK and Irish market for world leading electronic equipment. This exciting partnership now allows for both companies to work together and enhance the customer experience.''
