Leading hardware specialist Mighton Products has entered into an exciting new partnership with Newark based machinery supplier International Woodworking Machinery (IWM), in a move that gifts them the accolade of sole UK distributor of Mighton’s professional joinery machines.
The pair began working together in October 2018 when IWM enhanced their existing offering by including Mighton’s Scribe-It and X-Cut machines. Scribe-It is semi-automatic and used to end scribe timber profiles, while X-Cut glides through beading, producing perfect cross-joints, and improving throughput and efficiency. The decision to adopt both models was borne through the synchronicity between Mighton’s machine quality and IWM’s business model to supply specialist woodworking machinery to leading UK joinery manufacturers.
Keen to protect the integrity of the brand, IWM Managing Director Ian Brown is known for being selective over which companies they partner:
“Mighton is renowned throughout the industry as a market leader, so we knew we were joining with a fellow business whose morals and values matched our own. We place customers’ requirements at the heart of our service and strive to provide machinery that is a joy to use. By thinking like a joiner, we ensure the machinery we sell meets every need, and complements and simplifies the work they undertake.”
IWM has received encouraging levels of interest from the wider market and is able to facilitate requests to sample beading testing as both machines are set up for demonstrations in their onsite showroom.
“Partnerships are all about utilising one another’s strengths. IWM has supplied machinery for more than a decade, with our in-house experience spanning a far greater timeframe. Mighton is a reputable name to be associated with, so we hope that Mike and his team are seeing the benefits of the choice his company has made.”
