West Midlands special bolting manufacturer Hague Fasteners is to expand its business operations in Willenhall, in a custom refitted fastener manufacturing facility.
The 46-year old Wolverhampton business finalised its purchase of the new site – just a short distance from the existing Watery Lane factory – at the end of January.
The business will relocate to the new Willenhall location in Q2 2017. The new site is nearly three times the size of the existing operation and will pave the way for major new plant investment and the creation of new jobs.
Hague had spent 10 years at its Watery Lane site. Over the last decade the firm has seen continued year-on-year growth. The new facility will enable a doubling of production capacity with faster production times and ‘a continued commitment to reliability’.
Claire and Jon Hague are the husband and wife team behind Hague Fasteners. MD Jon Hague said: “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.”
Co-owner Claire Hague added: “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.”
