A leading UK manufacturer of non-standard fasteners is on course for a record-breaking year following £300,000 of work to supply specialist products to the oil and gas, petrochemical and construction sectors.

Family-owned Hague Fasteners, which has recently been awarded ISO9001:2015 certification, has seen a 25% surge in orders. This was perfectly timed after the company moved into a new, 8,500 square foot factory in Willenhall – three times larger than its old premises – earlier this year.

“We had reached bursting point at our old site, so knew 2017 was always going to be the year we made a move,” explained Jon Hague, the company’s CEO, who runs the firm with his wife Claire.

“It took us 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.”

Hague Fasteners also hope to take on six new members of staff, some of whom may be apprentices, by the end of the year, Jon continued.

The company has been in operation in the Black Country since 1971, and was established by Jon’s father, John. It has since grown to specialise in bespoke, small-batch products including specialist fasteners, studs, nuts and bolts.

“Our bolts, fasteners and pins get used in a wide range of applications,” said Claire Hague. “In the last year alone, we’ve supplied to a blockbuster film, high profile sports stadiums and one of the world’s most prominent buildings.”

Fastener Manufacturing Expansion

Hague Fasteners acquires new site and reveals plans for major Fastener Manufacturing Facility expansion.

With 46 years of West Midlands Special bolting manufacturing history behind them, Hague Fasteners has announced exciting plans to expand its business operations in Willenhall, into  a new custom refitted Fastener Manufacturing facility.

New Fastener Manufacturing Location
Claire & Jon Hague, the husband and wife team that run the half century old Wolverhampton Family business, sealed a deal on the purchase of a new manufacturing facility at the end of January. The new site is just a short distance from their existing Watery Lane factory.

A significant redevelopment of the new facility is now underway that will see the business relocate in the 2nd quarter of 2017. The new site is almost three times the size of the existing operation and enables major new plant investment, whilst also creating a number of new jobs.

This is great news for the local area that has already seen a number of other Fastener manufacturers close down since the turn of the year.

Hague Fasteners have enjoyed 10 years at their current location. The last decade has seen continued Year on Year growth as they continually strive to stand out in a crowded marketplace by offering the very best in Customer Service and total integrity.

The exciting move to a brand new, custom refitted facility enables a doubling of production capacity that will see even faster production times and a continued commitment to reliability.

“We are proud to see our success continue with the purchase of our new site. The complete re-design and renovation works of our new headquarters is now underway enabling us to move forward with the next exciting phase in our growth as a dominant force in High Integrity Special Fastener manufacturing.”

Jon Hague, Managing Director Jon Hague

It also represents a significant vote of confidence in UK manufacturing. Hague Fasteners also intends to continue their investment in bringing apprentices through from local schools to encourage students to move into the industry.

“when Hague stepped away from trying to compete with inferior imports 12 years ago, we had to reinvent the business and prove the model. We know from Customer feedback that what we do is very special in a saturated market. Our customers know that reliability and integrity are what’s important and it is these morals that have driven us to personally invest in a much improved infrastructure. This ensures The Hague name continues to be the first name where service and quality is valued above cheap imports sold under the guise of quality assurance. When quality truly matters we’ve proven that British manufacturing wins every time, the future is indeed bright at the dawn of many more exciting years ahead”.

Claire Hague, Co-Owner Claire Hague

Hague Fasteners were founded in 1971. They have set the standard in high class customer service and total integrity in every aspect of service and supply.

Reverse Engineering

Reverse Engineering of Old or Obsolete Special Fasteners

Hague Fasteners are experts in the Reverse engineering (or Back Engineering) of all types of Engineered Special Fasteners, fixings and turned parts.

We have seen a sharp increase in the need for identification, reverse design and manufacturing of all sorts of components. Often in very small batches such as 2pcs, 10pcs, 25pcs etc. where the component has been in use for many years and there is no longer access to the original parts’ Engineering drawing.

Bespoke Reverse Engineered Fasteners

Often the items are completely Bespoke Fasteners that need making exactly to the dimensions and thread sizes of the existing part.

Reverse Engineering
From Old To New

Hague Fasteners also offer modifications to the parts where required. This is often an increase in material strength or a material upgrade for extra performance and reliability or simply a slight modification to certain sizes. Perhaps increasing the length or changing the thread form.

Engineering Rebuild and Repairs

Our special Fastener reverse engineering service is utilised by companies large and small where old plant or vehicles are being repaired or rebuilt. We are also at hand to assist enthusiasts who are working on private vehicle projects where a part is needed, perhaps some new head studs, or some extended Wheel Studs for a classic car or race car modification.

We are also proven to manufacture very small batches of items that may even be available from other Countries. Our reverse engineered Fasteners offer a UK Manufactured solution cheaper and faster than seeking an overpriced import where the rarity of the product required sees an over inflated price at the expense of the purchaser.

Where a special component is required and their is no access to a drawing or technical design description, Hague Fasteners operate a convenient solution.

1. You obtain a quotation from a photograph, so no need to lose time and money by sending the item in. We just ask that the item is photographed alongside a tape or rule so that we can establish rough sizes and costings to reproduce. 

2. We will then send you our formal quotation for reverse engineering the part. 

3. If you are happy with the proposed offer you then send in the sample (or we can collect if inconvenient due to component size). We then get to work replicating the item required with a lead time to suit your needs. 

We look forward to hearing from you with any requirements you have for replacing older or difficult to obtain Fasteners.
