Force Technology, a company that specialises in the high precision, high duty spring markets, has won the Alliance’s prestigious ‘International Trade Award’ at the 2021 Northern Automotive Alliance (NAA) Awards. The event took place in Cheshire on 23 September and showcased the successes of vehicle manufacturers, supply chain companies and service providers in the region.

Competition for the award was tough, with two other of the region’s leading automotive businesses shortlisted. However, judges were impressed by the company’s significant progression from a start-up in 2015, particularly the considerable growth in exports despite the challenges of Covid and Brexit.  A professional and strategic approach to export marketing has enabled Force Technology to achieve levels of growth over the last two years that far outstrip reasonable expectations for a new business.

A “World Class” vision and manufacturing approach reassure that the company can deliver large orders for springs that supersede their particularly demanding quality requirements.

Force Technology continues to grow its market share, supplying precision springs into ‘blue-chip’ and OE customers in areas such as automotive, off-highway, motorsport, marine and rail. In addition, the company offers expert advice for designing, testing, and analysing dynamic springs to cope with ever-higher performance and challenging environments.
