A new sales and service centre for Winter diamond tools for the stone industry opened at the start of the year near Leeds.
Forming part of the Nimbus Northern branch at Gildersome, the new National Stone Centre will become the focus of Winter diamond tooling in the UK and Ireland, marketing the full range of products including circular and frame saw blades, diamond wire, milling tools and grinding and polishing heads.
Sold throughout the world, Winter products are backed by more than 150 years of diamond toolmaking expertise.
And to back up the nationwide marketing operation a new, specialist field support team has been put in place to handle customer liaison, including technical advice and servicing.
Heading the new customer support team is Keith Kemp, a saw specialist with more than 20 years experience of the stone industry.
As a whole, the field support group operates nationwide across the UK and Ireland offering on-the-spot technical assistance with re-tipping of the full circular blade range a speciality.
