Fixfast, the leading supplier and manufacturer of quality building envelope fasteners, has added a cutting-edge manufacturing and R&D cell to its UK operations.
The new facility in Rolvenden, Kent, allows Fixfast to design and produce its range of fasteners with industry-leading quality, accuracy and speed.
The expanded, rapid-response production capacity is an investment in Fixfast’s ‘Maximum Reliability, Minimum Fuss’ customer promise, making the company an even more reliable and responsive supplier of quality fasteners.
Managing Director of Fixfast, Ken Lynes, said: “Now, more than ever, customers need a fastener partner they can depend on. That’s why we’ve invested heavily in our new UK manufacturing capability to ensure we’re here for customers when they need us.
“Everyone at Fixfast is focused on improving the way fasteners are made and used in the construction of better, safer buildings.
Michael Edwards, Head of Engineering at Fixfast, added: “We’ve brought together best-in-class machines from around the world for each step of the manufacturing process.
“This, coupled with techniques normally only seen in highly advanced industries like aerospace and automotive, means we’ve created one of the most cutting-edge manufacturing and engineering environments in the UK construction industry.”
The new manufacturing cell uses data to link Internet-of-Things-enabled machines in one of the sector’s first industry 4.0 grade facilities. This allows close monitoring of each stage of production and gives unprecedented control, so fasteners are produced with greater speed and accuracy than ever before.
