As part of the Tyco business, Wormald has access to a remarkable depth and breadth of physical and intellectual resources, providing global strength to reinforce our local know-how.

"The Wormald business has evolved so much and the team is constantly developing new technologies and applications to better serve its customers. It’s exciting to think how the business will develop further over the coming years."
