Sheffield Engineering Expertise Adds Norwegian Market Partners

17th September 2015

One of Sheffield's engineering success stories has added another supplier to its worldwide distribution network.

Tufcot Engineering based at Coleford Road, Darnall have announced the signing of a Distribution Agreement with Otto Olsen AS. The agreement gives Otto Olsen exclusive rights to market and distribute Tufcot Composite Bearing material and machined parts throughout Norway. Norway and the other Scandinavian countries is seen as a market critical region with many of the heavy industries in which Tufcot material thrives. Tufcot has been manufacturing its specialist composite material for nearly 35 years and over the last two years has embarked on a major expansion programme. From humble beginnings in a private garage at Handsworth, the company's latest move has seen it triple its production and machining space by moving to its new premises at Darnall. Heavy investment in new machinery and equipment sees the company well placed to continue its push into new markets worldwide as well as establishing themselves still further in its existing bases. Managing Director, Greg Majchrzak explained that the tie in with Otto Olsen is a significant step forward. -Tufcot has been a well-established player in the composites market for many years now. It's a market where many brands have come and gone, merged then disappeared but our family company and product have remained a constant. Scandinavia and in particular Norway, with its shipping and oil industries are key markets. Having a company with the size, presence and history of Otto Olsen on board is a major coup. The range of investments has also seen Tufcot significantly improve the quality of its internet presence with its new website
