One of the world's leading manufacturers of round, flat, shaped and profile wire is reporting a major increase in demand for high quality European or DFARS compliant stainless steel.

Alloy Wire International (AWI) has seen new orders come in from clients in aerospace, nuclear, marine, petrochemical and spring makers, with many citing the firmís unrivalled quality and ability to deliver anywhere in the world within a few weeks as being fundamental to their purchasing decisions.

The company, which has two manufacturing facilities in the West Midlands and Yorkshire, currently produces 18 different grades of stainless steel, all available in special diameter tolerances, tensile strength ranges, surface finishes and packaging.

"Stainless Steel is very special to us," explained Natalie Baker, Sales Executive at AWI.

"We produce an extensive range of grades (from St/St 302 to Duplex stainless steel) and our expansive stock levels mean we can provide it in any quantity from 1/4kg to 50kg in just two weeks. Our manufacturing capability is equally as impressive and we are more than happy to produce wire as small as 0.025mm (that's 2 times smaller than a human hair) and as large as 21mm."

She continued: "Applications can be as diverse as 'locking' wire for aircraft engines to stainless steel wire for cutting honeycomb from a beehive."

"Interest in this type of material is up 15% on the same time last year and our pipeline of potential orders suggest this could increase in 2017, as more firms recognise the outstanding versatility and performance of Alloy Wire in stainless steel."

AWI, which is AS9100 'Aerospace and Defence' accredited, has enjoyed another strong 12 months, consolidating market share in key territories and expanding its global reach to supply into 52 countries. It currently boasts 5000 customers across 15 different sectors and has recently expanded its range of different alloys to 60, including Hastelloy~, Phynox+, MP35N* and Inconel® - all manufactured to the highest possible quality standards and available in a range of sizes and packaging options.

Natalie concluded: "Quality, customer service and delivering reliability are three of our founding principles and ones that still ring true today with our global customer base."
