Bulldog Tools forges ahead in the credit crunch
Despite cheaper manufacturing options overseas,
Bulldog Tools has kept true to its roots and continues to fabricate
and manufacture all of their solid forged tools in its Wigan
factory; the last working forge of its kind in the UK. In addition,
Bulldog Tools has seen an increase in sales over the summer show
season, compared to the same time last year.
Marketing Director, Stuart Elsom, comments; “We are understandably proud of our British heritage and despite the credit crunch we continue to manufacture high quality British, solid forged tools at our Wigan factory, which in 2010 sees its 230th birthday.”
Employing over 65 members of highly skilled staff, Bulldog Tools provides employment opportunities for Wigan and the surrounding area and has returned to normal levels of manufacturing.
Bulldog Tools offers an ‘open invitation’ to anyone who would like to see first hand its manufacturing facility at Wigan.
