Unifast opens new premises in the UK

Unifast srl Sistemi di Assemblaggio is opening a new office for its UK partner company Unifast Fastening Systems Ltd. Opening the new premises at Woodlea Park near Alton in Hampshire is the first significant step in a planned worldwide expansion by Unifast, one of Europe's leading fastener manufacturers.

Orientated to offer outstanding customer service, the new site has both engineering design and warehouse facilities. Previously UK customers had to deal with Unifast's Italian office, but now they can have their orders filled directly from the fully stocked warehouse at Woodlea Park. The company says its decision to base in Hampshire was due in strong part to the area's excellent air, road and rail communications and the local availability of skilled staff. The company plans to recruit a number of specialist employees over the coming months.

Unifast believes it will now be better able to service existing clients and attract new ones by providing access to its innovative engineering team based at Woodlea Park. Unifast's Managing Director Simon Beauchamp says: "What we want to do is show clients how our higher performance products can reduce their in-placed costs, from purchase through assembly to final function. This is what Unifast is about: we offer our clients innovative, economic but reliable fastening solutions."

The company has already launched a number of successful products into UK and European markets. These include the KAPti-nut, a cleaner, safer and more environmentally friendly alternative to weld nuts, and the quick-acting panel fixing system, known as the Fast Turn, one application for which is to secure noise shields under vehicles.
