A County Durham company has won a top award for its engraving services.

Sagetech Machinery won the award for Best Product for Personalisation at Trophex 2019.

Presented to the Sagetech team at the Trophex Exhibition, held at Sandown Park, the award was for the company’s for its Desktop Engraver which was on display and demonstrated at the show.

The award which was voted for by attendees at the event came as a huge surprise to the team at Sagetech, who only launched their engraver at the W18 exhibition in October 2018.

Managing Director Craig Williams said: “We are so honored to have received this award. We spent a lot of time and energy in researching our Engraver, to ensure we had a product that filled a gap in the market. There are so many other great products out there for personalisation that we didn’t expect to get nominated for the award, let alone win. It’s great to have been acknowledged for the hard work that our team has put in and show that it has all paid off.”

Owned by Craig and Sophie Williams, Sagetech Machinery is known for its British-made, vertical panel saws which are sold around the UK and overseas.

Craig added: “I was receiving feedback from clients who owned our Vertical Panel Saws that they were wasting their offcuts and were looking for a machine that could allow them to turn their offcuts into a new revenue stream. After thorough research, we decided on our Desktop Engraver, which allows for a range of materials and sizes to be engraved onto and with exceptional accuracy.

“With this award leading onto an excellent start to 2019, we are excited to see what else is in store for Sagetech Machinery this year.”
