A Made in the Midlands News Article

Established nearly 30 years ago with many of its associated brands dating back to the turn of the century the Almor Group is a leading manufacturer in all types of furnaces for the heat treatment industry and other process sectors. The Midlands based firm has joined Made in the Midlands to find opportunities to collaborate with fellow members and, more importantly, learn and share best practice with like minded firms in the region. 

The Almor Group has a vast catalogue of manufacturing competencies, their main offerings of expertise lie in furnace engineering (Tipton and Sutton in Ashfield) as well as their alloy fabrication site based in Nottingham. Split across two sub brands, Almor produces bespoke medium to large furnaces with their Almor Wellman brand and medium to small furnaces and ovens with their Almor Wild Barfield brand. 

The firm found out about the Made in Group a couple of years ago and thought joining would be a great opportunity to raise their online profile and become more involved with the Midlands manufacturing community. However, due to investment into the business, it wasn’t the right time for the company to join. Now the firm is ready to share their best practices, learn from other industry leaders and build connections with like-minded professionals.

 Ashley Morrell-Swain, Marketing Manager at Almor, said:

“We would like to meet like-minded people we can learn from as well as meet potential new customers. I think being part of a group like Made in the Midlands is a great way to build trust with clients and suppliers. We work with many well-established companies and we are hoping that by being an active member of the group we could also achieve more online exposure and get our brand name out there.”

Almor are looking forward to attending Made events, especially the Backing Britain virtual breakfast mornings where members have the opportunity to discuss current industry topics with other professionals. Members of the Made in Group can look forward to Almor sharing their expertise in heat treatment and learning more about their years of experience in the sector.
