Inductotherm’s points of difference Inductotherm is focused on satisfying its customer’s specific requirements. 
A significant number of customers are owner managed businesses with the owners committing significant personal financial resources to the purchase of new equipment.  Inductotherm is aware that there is a lot at stake for customers who are dependent upon equipment being reliable in order to maintain production. A successful sale requires getting to know our customers well and gain their trust and confidence. 
This is achieved through making many visits to customers and accompanying them on visits to reference sites throughout Europe.

Inductotherm benefits from being able to show our customers our manufacturing base in the UK where the equipment is designed and manufactured.

Green applications – New demands for our product

Over the past few years we have seen opportunities for our equipment to be used in various “green” applications.  These include important elements in the manufacture of solar panels, wind turbines and the latest generation of fuel efficient aircraft. The demand for these products is growing significantly.
