ActOn Finishing first opened its doors.
The business became very successful after winning important London-based client, Hoover. They used ActOn’s chemical compounds to polish aluminium parts on vacuum cleaners.
It was around this time that we saw the opportunity to create our very own finishing machinery. The first prototypes were the trough range, which were then introduced to the Jaguar Engine Plant based in Radford, Coventry. This milestone led to the development of automatic bowl machines.
From 1980, we began exporting products overseas. One Swedish aluminium casting company bought 10 machines and compound consumables in one order!
On top of this, 1980 saw us employ our first sales rep, which led to the growth of an impressive sales team.
