A UK manufacturer of non-standard fasteners has celebrated moving into its new home by securing a string of new contracts.
Hague Fasteners, which has recently been awarded ISO9001:2015, has won £300,000 of work to supply specialist products to the oil and gas, petrochemical and growing construction sectors.
The 25% surge in orders comes after the business completed a move to a larger factory in Willenhall, West Midlands that enables it to triple its production capacity to 8,500 sq ft.
“We had reached bursting point at our old site so knew 2017 was always going to be the year we made a move,” explained CEO Jon Hague, who runs the firm with his wife Claire.
“It took us over six months to find the right place, but as soon as we saw it we knew the location was ideal, giving us more space to take on new clients and the ability to plan the layout down to the finest detail.
“Our factory now boasts more CNC machines and is laid out in cells to help improve efficiency. This is just the start, we've got exciting plans to add further new technology to the shopfloor and expect to take on six new people between now and the end of the year - some of whom could be apprentices.”
Hague Fasteners supplies products in small to medium batch quantities, from single prototypes through to 5, 10, 25 and 50 part runs. It provides technical fasteners in sizes from 3mm to 200mm in diameter.
