A County Durham machinery firm hopes a factory switch can be the catalyst for export growth across South Africa and the US.

Sagetech Machinery has moved to a larger unit on Chilton Industrial Estate, near Ferryhill, in a bid to extend its market presence.

The business designs and makes vertical panel saws, and says its new home, which includes a showroom and production and warehousing space, will be complemented by a fresh marketing drive to highlight new products.

Sagetech is a member of CDEMN and exhibited at last week’s Oktoberfest within the newly created Incubator Zone.
