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.”

With Hagues relocation to their modern rebuilt facility only weeks away things will only get better and this is the first of a number of external accreditations Hague Fasteners have in the pipeline. 

The new focus provided by the upgrade from ISO9001:2008 will be sure to create issues for Fastener suppliers that just “tick the boxes” but with total QMS integration and customer experience focus to  improve from top to bottom, the transition to the superior ISO9001:2015 standard has been just what Hague has yearned for, and indeed the industry has needed, that enables Hague Fasteners to further stand out in a saturated marketplace.
