In a change from the everyday production of Special Fasteners, some of The Hague Fasteners team were up and at work before the Birds started singing ready to welcome the News Team to report from Hague Fasteners on BBC Breakfast.
The nations major National Breakfast News show had approached Hague Fasteners as part of their 3 day focus on the success of Family Businesses and asked to come and talk to us about the success that has seen us become one of only 12% of Family Businesses that pass to the 3rd Generation.
BBC presenter Steph McGovern and the BBC outside broadcast crew were our guests throughout the morning and the BBC show broadcast live regularly from Hague Fasteners between 6am and 9am.
We’ve had a tremendous reaction to our appearance with commendations from business leaders and well wishes from many Customers and Suppliers.
We have always been proud of our roots from our founding by John S Hague in 1971 and it is with great pride that his Son and his family now drive the business to the next generation and beyond.
Check out the show on BBC iPlayer for a limited time and look out for the “Nuts & Bolts” of the show around 6:05, 6:20, 6:50, 7:50 & 8:55
