Sales boom for Hague Fasteners

One of the UK’s leading manufacturers of non-standard fasteners has been celebrating moving into its new home by securing several new contracts.

Hague Fasteners, which has recently been awarded ISO9001:2015, is on course for a record year after winning £300,000 of work to supply specialist products to the oil and gas, petrochemical and growing construction sectors. The 25% surge in orders comes at a perfect time for the Black Country business after it completed a move to a larger factory in Willenhall, more than tripling 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 was formed in 1971 by the late John Hague (the father of the current MD) and has been manufacturing in the Black Country for more than four decades. The company produces specialist fasteners, headed bolts, studs, nuts and milled components in a wide range of high integrity materials and critical nickel alloys. It has built a reputation for supplying products you can’t get off the shelf in small to medium batch quantities, from single prototypes through to 5, 10, 25 and 50 part runs.
