Universal Converting Equipment Experiences Record Sales In 2015 For The Universal X6 Slitter Thanks To Global Distribution

Universal Converting Equipment went global in 2015, resulting in record sales figures, with turnover reported to have grown 60% in the last year, with hopes to make the biggest leaps ever in 2016.

Globalisation is proceeding apace, in large part thanks to the internet. Universal Converting Equipment is a UK based business with a worldwide customer base, offering innovative slitters, rewinders, core cutters, coating and laminating systems. As a result, they have reported record sales in 2015 and they expect 2016 to be even better. 

Their best-selling product is the X6 Duplex Slitter Rewinder, used by film producers and flexible material converters around the world. Capable of processing films, foils, papers, non-wovens and laminates of all kinds, the X6 produces perfect slit rolls thanks to Universal’s closed loop Total Tension Control System, ensuring consistent and repeatable roll tension profiles. Automation features (including auto-knife positioning and core positioning) combine to allow new slitting jobs to be precisely set up in under two minutes. With maximum control, coupled with surprising simplicity, the machine saves time while improving accuracy. 

Universal report that the majority of purchased components are sourced direct from manufacturers, eliminating the risk of using counterfeit parts. This, coupled with Universal’s extensive computer CNC engineering and design departments, ensures the company is able to build the X6 slitter efficiently in quantities that allows them to sell them at a price that is lower than normal for this quality of machine.

With such a game changing slitting machine, it’s easy to see how the UK company has increased their global success in the last year. They have taken pains to provide the same great quality of customer support internationally to ensure their growth in overseas markets can continue. 

A spokesperson for Universal Converting Equipment explained, “Expanding sales into the global market has been an exciting, high pressure move for us. We are committed to offering the same great value added service provision internationally as we do at home. The X6 Slitter has had an exceptional 2015 and next year we hope it will be the industry standard. We continue to push forward our innovations focussed on improving slitting productivity and quality whilst developing our service and support team to handle the increased global demand. We have seen the results of this strategy in repeat orders and multiple machine orders from a number of customers. You can make a customer happy with a good machine but you need high quality support to keep them happy. If they are not happy, they do not come back.”
