Published:  12 February, 2016

Carl Kammerling International, the leading supplier of quality hand tools and security products, has relocated its North West Marketing office from Manchester Business Park to Daresbury Park in Cheshire, to accommodate the future growth plans of the company.

Located conveniently on the M56, the Park has been designated as a Key Strategic Site by the North West Development Agency and is attracting a host of large corporations in the North West.

The buildings are designed to offer staff comfortable and flexible workspaces, to inspire and improve productivity. It is a fully managed Park, incorporating 24-hour security, maintenance and management.

Paul Fallon, Marketing Manager at Carl Kammerling International, says, “2015 was another good year for Carl Kammerling International, which saw an overall growth in sales of 4.7% year on year; this is thanks to a number of marketing-led campaigns, bringing genuine value and support to stockists. Our price promotion initiatives, Winter Wonderland and HOTBOX, performed particularly well resulting in a 19% increase in sales compared to the previous year. We also scored an impressive 91% in our customer satisfaction survey, which we are incredibly proud of.

“We’ve kicked off the new year by moving to a contemporary and spacious new office and there is a real sense of enthusiasm within the team. All members of staff are motivated to deliver on the ambitious growth targets for 2016.”

Tom Meyerratken, Managing Director of Carl Kammerling International comments, “I am delighted that the North West team is enjoying the new surroundings at Daresbury Park. The modern space allows us to accommodate our growing team comfortably and meets requirements exactly, so that work is a pleasure.

“We are pleased with the 2015 sales results, which we have achieved in spite of market challenges. Our excellent promotions and new products have performed especially well. In addition to solid UK sales performance, our sales in France also grew by 13%, thanks to a targeted, sales-driven plan.

“The business is perfectly positioned for an exciting 2016 performance. We have new revenue initiatives in place, high calibre people on the ground and a strong sense of enthusiasm to make sure it happens.”

Carl Kammerling International prides itself on being a good employer and believes its focus on teamwork and mutual respect helps to make a happy and loyal workforce. The company employs over 82 full time staff members in a variety of roles and boasts an above average service of 13 years.
