Lockdecoders reports record sales
Continuously increasing sales volume for the company's main and exclusive products are painting a happy picture for the adventurous Lockdecoders team!
January was the company's largest ever monthly turnover, beating any previous month by over 35%. February was forecast to be low on the basis of historical trends yet it too proved to be buoyant, says a jubilant Vic Southern.
"The firm is almost unique in the speciality field of auto locksmith supply as it does not sell keys or fobs retail. Apart from that the entire business volume is major equipment sales and follow-up ancillaries - transponder chips, eeprom modules, cutters and decoders," adds Vic.
The firm now exports to 35 countries - so far - and with new potential distributors applying every few days.
The large sales volume achieved already by the firm's latest automatic key cutting machine, the Miracle A9, has not affected at all the quantity of sales of the Miracle A5. The latter is still the weapon of choice for mobile auto locksmiths whilst the bigger new machine is the world' s most versatile key cutting machines as it handles all car keys, including Tibbe and FO19, as well as domestic cylinder keys and dimple keys.
"That is a lot from one machine with a price tag under £5000," Vic observes.
Meanwhile the MiraClone, exclusive throughout the world, is throwing up more and more cloning, chip generating and eeprom capabilities as each month goes by thanks to a non stop research programme.
