Mills reports best-ever sales figures for 2010

Mills CNC, the exclusive distributor of Doosan machine tools in the UK and Ireland, has announced that sales in 2010 exceeded £30.6m (up 20 per cent on 2009) and that 307 new machines were ordered by customers during the year.

The results also reveal the positive impact on sales generated by the 2010 Mach exhibition, as well as the range of Doosan machines that Mills launched into the market at the show and in the months that followed.

Following a slow first quarter to 2010, sales grew exponentially throughout the year resulting in a £11.1m order intake in the fourth quarter – the best final quarter in Mills’ 38-year history.

This saw sales in the second half of the year reaching £19.9m, similarly the best second-half sales performance in the company’s history.
