The launch of an all new warco.co.uk

This is an archived post.


Today we’re happy to be announcing the launch of an all new website.

A little background first.  Warco have been online for well over a decade now – we originally registered warco.co.uk back in 1997, pre-dating the registration of even google.com!  (Incidentally, for more information and a little more background about Warco, see our new About Us page.)  Since the beginning, keeping the business up to date with communications and technology has always been a central principle of Warco, and in that same vein we’re happy to launch our all new site.

Fully rebuilt from the ground up, we’ve striven to make our online shop streamlined everywhere you look.  You’ll find it’s now easier to use, as freshly updated as it could possibly be, simple to navigate and with richer product details than ever before.  It’s been a huge undertaking rebuilding the site from scratch, and we hope you’re happy with the results.  Built with you the customer in mind, we’ve listened to your feedback and tailored an online shop where everything  just works.

We’ve reshaped the site to be essentially centred around three different overview categories.

First off, we have our largest category Metal Working.  Here you’ll find all of the metalwork products we sell, with more details on each than ever before.  From lathes to milling machines, from sheet metal machinery to metal bandsaws, lathe tools to drilling machines, and everything in between, this is the place to get started if you’re after anything metal working related.

Next up, we have the Warco range of woodworking tools and machinery.   In this category, we’ve launched a raft of new products alongside our large existing range of machines for woodworkers, which includes woodturning lathes, chisel mortice machines, planer thicknessers and a variety of wood lathe tools.  Today sees the introduction of the all new Mini Woodworking Lathe.  Very affordable, this machine is ideal for a range of precise level woodwork and represents a superb introduction to wood turning.  Another new product is the Mini Wood Combination Machine.  Offering nearly all the features of its full size counterpart, this new mini machine is both compact and versatile yet incorporates a planer thicknesser, saw, spindle moulder and morticer.

Finally, the Warco range of machines, tools and accessories for education – incorporating training centres, schools, colleges, academies and universities – all of which we have  a long history of successfully supplying machine tools to.  We’re always happy to offer a quote for larger orders – and can equip a workshop of any size.  See the Education Machine Tools category for more details.

The full Warco brochure is also downloadable online  now, so you can browse our entire product range in your own time.  If you’re interested in forthcoming shows Warco will be exhibiting at, see the exhibitions page.  There’s much more to see, so why not take a look for yourself?  And if you have any feedback about the new site, we’d love to hear it.

Warco at the Sandown Park Model Engineering Exhibition

Another year has passed and we wanted to wish all our customers and friends the very best for 2010.

Last month, we were the Model Engineering Exhibition at Sandown Park – a great venue and there was an excellent turnout.

Amongst the small tooling machinery we had for sale were our new range of digital scales.

Below are some of the machines we had on display.

We have a few more photos of the Sandown Park show on the Warco flickr.

If you couldn’t make it to this show, there’s the Model Engineering Exhibition at Alexandra Palace to look forward to.
