A year as GTL

A year as GTL

December sees the end of our first year as Gedore Torque Ltd following our rebranding which took place in January. It's been quite a year, both locally for us here at GTL as we continue our planned programme of investment and development, and globally, as all kinds of unexpected scenarios have arisen to create challenges to which international industry has had rapidly to reevaluate and respond.

We have had an extremely heartening and positive reaction from our customers and distributors following the rebranding, which we appear to have succeeded in making as seamless a transition as possible. Our seventeen year history as a member of the Gedore Group meant that we had to make few changes other than our name and corporate colour, and we all feel that the more unified and comprehensive image for our quality torque tools benefits us, the Gedore group worldwide, and most importantly of all, our customers and distributors.

The Torqueleader brand which served us so well for many years is no longer in use, but undoubtedly the ethos remains - we are still the market leader when it comes to anything torque related.

2016 has seen a particular emphasis on research and development, and as 2017 dawns we will be launching our completely redeveloped torque wrenches, and our eagerly awaited Capture Hub, the latest addition to our world class Capture system range of torque analysers. We have been keeping you up to date with the development progress of these new tools in our newsletters during the course of the year and there has been considerable interest in both; we are looking forward immensely to showing them off to you.

Another important expansion to our tool range was brought about by the incorporation of Losomat UK with GTL. This took place in the summer, and has enabled us to offer a considerably wider range of tools with increased torque ranges. It has been a perfect fit in terms of complementary products and a common commitment to quality. These durable and versatile products will make light of your toughest assignments; check them out on our website or contact salesandrepairs@gedore-torque.com.

We brought out our new brochure this year which has been well received. If you haven't had a copy, let us know, or download it from our website. The second print run, updated to contain the latest information, will be going to press in the first quarter of the New Year. We have also brought out a calendar for 2017 which we hope our customers and distributors will find useful and informative; again, contact us for a copy.

We have been delighted to welcome some new distributors to our worldwide network during 2016, and are looking forward to a long and productive relationship with them. Many of our distributors have been our partners in business for years, some even for decades, and it is an association which we at GTL particularly prize.

2017 sees the 80th anniversary of the founding of our company. We will be marking this milestone in various ways during the year. In the meantime, Gedore Torque Ltd, the latest incarnation of a company with a rich historical past and a vibrant and positive future, will continue to go from strength to strength.
