Hi Everyone

Our inbox seems to have been full of encouraging news over the last few weeks, with success stories coming in from all over the industry.
The Altus Group has marked the half-way point of the year by announcing a record sales month for the company since its inception 17 years ago. You can read more on this story below.
Altus managing director, Richard Booth said:
“The level of investment we see shows that the UK electronics market is as competitive and vibrant as ever."
This positivity seems to have been reflected elsewhere, with Blakell Europlacer Distribution hosting a Technology Day for over 60 delegates representing a broad cross-section of the surface mount community, from global EMS providers and Tier 2 & 3 contract manufacturers to medium and large OEMs from sectors that included automotive and aero engine manufacture.
Andy Jones expressed his delight with the great turnout, commenting: “We enjoy hosting these events, having done so almost every year for the past decade, and it’s encouraging to see that we continue to attract good numbers of visitors from varied manufacturing backgrounds."
In other news, Anglia Components announced the next phase of their ambitious five year plan to grow their share of the UK electronic component distribution market to 10%, with a turnover of £100 million. The company is actively recruiting as it continues to look to outgrow the market and achieve this growth organically.
The WNIE team congratulates all these companies on their continuing success and trusts that the great work across our sector will go from strength to strength.  We look forward to showcasing innovation and positivity at our WNIE Live event in September! Register here for FREE entry.

Have a great week!
