Atkin Automation, part of Group Rhodes, is celebrating its 10-year anniversary as the UK and Ireland distributor for Taiwanese company Shung-Dar Industrial Co.
The company started working in partnership with Shung-Dar in 2008, and for the past decade Atkin Automation has been a distributor for Shung-Dar’s growing range of coil stamping and processing equipment for carbon steel, stainless steel and aluminium processing plants. Today, the product portfolio includes automatic slitting lines, cut-to-length lines, combined lines and multi-blanking lines.
Geoff Barker, sales manager at Atkin Automation, says: “The relationship has been a success as our two businesses share the same values. Our mutual goal is to deliver high-quality products and services. We also focus on innovation and the use of technology, and ensure we take care of our skilled workforce.”
To mark the 10th anniversary of the successful distributorship, Shung Dar president Mr Yang, his son Jason and sales manager Shawn Yang (nephew), travelled to Wakefield, where the new Atkin premises is located. Speaking at the company after a presentation on Shung-Dar’s expanding product range, Yang said: “Over the past decade, both of our businesses have grown significantly and we have also developed our range to provide a complete smart press stamping line solution to steel and aluminium producers and stockholders.”
