Marketing Archive

This is Andrew Woods' fault. I hadn't seen Andrew for nearly ten years when he came up to me at a hotel in Norwich in 2013. "Is that you Graeme" he said, "the Mult-Hy man. I always remember you dressed as Ali G". Wow, that took me back. So somebody did used to read my old newsletters after all. And that's where the idea came from for this particular part of the website. So, if you can be bothered to scroll through some of our old marketing efforts below then you might find out what Andrew was talking about. To be fair it's not that good. But Andrew remembered it.

Wind Energy Network Article

Great article about our attendance at EEEGR's SNS2015 conference and exhibition. Still not sure what charismatic with capital "K" means though.

Powerful Stuff - Hydraulic Cylinders

We like this one. There is one helluva lot of lifting power in this particular image.

Powerful Stuff - Torque Multiplier

But now he's getting a bit confused. What the hell is this? It's a torque multiplier Laurence. 1/2" sq.dr. input at one end and a 1" sq.dr. output at the other. Nice!

Powerful Stuff - EvoTorque

You can see that Laurence is getting into the swing of things now with Norbar's new electronic EvoTorque wrench. Looking mean!

Powerful Stuff - Limited Clearance Wrench

Number 2 of 5. Laurence looking serious. He hadn't time to get fed up yet with photographer Andy "FordyFourEyes" Ford. We did make it up to him with a huge steak meal for two (obviously just for Laurence) at Bertram's Restaurant in Burnley later that evening!

Powerful Stuff - Hydraulic Torque Wrench

This is the first of five new posters we've done as part of our Powerful Stuff campaign in 2015. Campaign? Who I am trying to kid. We're still playing at it!

Torque Talk - May 2013

We resurrected our Torque Talk newsletter in 2013 to coincide with the first anniversary of our establishing premises in Great Yarmouth.


We knocked up this leaflet/brochure ready for EEEGR's SNS2013 exhibition in March 2013. Having had hundreds of the buggers printed, we then moved premises thus rendering the address details out of date!

Article EEEGR News May 2013

This really is worth looking at, not for any other reason than SPX Territory Manager Ian Harris looks incredibly uncomfortable in the half crouch position. He reckons he had a bad back but we are thinking something much more embarrassing!

EEEGR Member of the Year Nomination 2013

Exciting times! 4NRg won the accolade but the voting was really close, incredibly close, recount needed and all that. Probably.

Mechanical Joint Integrity - Poster

Bolting competency training. We run regular ECITB accredited training courses at our Great Yarmouth base.


When it comes to goodie give-aways, we have always liked coasters because they will usually end up on someone's desk. Our first coaster was designed so that it resembled a bolting tag. Unfortunately, it was so well designed that most people didn't recognise it as being a coaster!

Museum Restoration

In 2010 we were asked to supply a cost-effective solution for the pre-stressing of steel beams to support the new entrance and inner walls of the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh. Check out the PDF for more information.

Torque Talk - January 2004

I got a bit picture post card saucy on this one with some views on hydraulic tensioning which I might not entirely go along with nowadays. But there again I did work for a hydraulic torque wrench manufacturer at the time.

This Newsletter concentrated on ECITB accredited bolting competency training, as valid then as it is now.

My favourite amongst the original Torque Talk newsletters with no "F" in Torque Wrench and Ali G.

Torque Talk - October 2002

We managed to get some good testimonials for put on this newsletter.

Torque Talk - July 2002

Bit of nudge nudge wink wink in this one!

Torque Talk - May 2002

I was on a bit of a roll by now with regular newsletters going out, albeit not always a great deal to talk about!

Torque Talk - March 2002

These early newsletters certainly have room for improvement. However the formatting of these old MS Publisher files has also caused some of the font and narrative not to display properly.

Torque Talk - December 2001

I obviously didn't have much to spend on this effort. Still printing the newsletters at home and this file designed to be a half page special!

Pay for this bit, and get all these bits!
