Business and Industry Today is extremely pleased to announce that Addex Group have been specially selected to receive our prestigious Company of the Year award in light of their world class supply service.
Based in Surrey, the group was first set up in 1998 and specialises in supplying machinery to multiple industries around the world. The brands making up the group consist of renowned names such as Allsaw, Maxvac, Big Ben, Ultra-floor and TECswiss, all of whom operate in the industrial, engineering, cleaning and construction sectors. Their sophisticated range of equipment extends from diamond tooling all the way through to industrial vacuums, and their strong client base is just as varied, including names such as British Gas, Chelsea Football Club, Jaguar, Interserve, Crossrail, Veolia and even the ZSL London Zoo.
We spoke to spokesperson Gary Plahe about winning this award, to which he said, “We are all proud of this award as it is testament to the team at Addex Group who are working hard to increase site safety, educate the construction industry on harmful substances and how to eradicate them, and also how to work as a unit to build a prosperous and sustainable company.”
The last 12 months in particular have seen great success for the company, with new business, new clients and new products. The Addex group saw a significant rise in sales during the course of 2016, with a number of record breaking profitable months.
Not only have they increased their UK client base, but they have generated new business across Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia and America, with more and more products being sold.
Addex Group have launched several products recently, ranging from the DuraVac-120 to the Allsaw AS170, the Electra 2.0 City Sweeper and the MaxVac MV700 Gum Machine. The Electra 2.0 from MaxVac is particularly impressive, displaying innovative leaps in technology with a range of beneficial features, such as reduced operating costs, a running time of 8-9 hours and producing zero emissions.
The world’s first electric 2.0M3 clean air sweeper delivers a stellar cleaning and sweeping operation, unmatched by traditional sweepers.
Another highly sought after piece of equipment is the cutting edge Arbortech Brick & Mortar Saw, also from AllSaw, which Addex is the sole UK distributor of. The Arbortech is an innovative tool designed for the cutting of brickwork. Boasting accuracy and precision, the tool can be used to cut everything from doorways to window openings to meter boxes. Not only that, but it produces only minimal dust and has even been approved by the English Heritage for use on historical and cultural restoration projects.
The Allsaw has garnered much interest for its comprehensive abilities and multi- purpose use. The saw features a heavy duty motor which boasts 1,250 watts and 47% more power. The AS170 sports an ergonomic and dust resistant design that reduces wear and tear, with the vibration reducing handle providing comfort for the user. As well as boasting a tungsten carbide blade with re-sharpenable teeth perfect for cutting bricks, mortar, soft stone, concrete, plastic, wood and composite materials.
Going forwards, Addex have plans to further improve upon their services, adding to their client base every day. Gary added, “At Addex Group, we are looking to create a sustainable organisation that is not only a leader in sales but also expertise throughout the construction industry, and increasing the safety for operatives on site.”
