Family-run, Shropshire-based GWR Fasteners has doubled its capacity and moved into brand new 10,000 square foot business premises on the Artillery Business Park in Oswestry, which is going to see increased manufacturing and distribution in the region, and a boost for jobs in the future.
GWR Fasteners Limited moved into the custom-built business premises in December 2018/January 2019 which was a major milestone for the company’s owners, Gary and Jude Robinson. The company decided to move from its smaller premises – also Oswestry, where they had been since 2013 – because they had no room left to grow and the location wasn’t easily accessible to customers. Gary and Jude designed the internals of the building with an architect to enable more efficient and effective working, give employees a more comfortable environment to work in and offer customers an invitation to see the inner workings of the company.
The company will continue its manufacture of special fasteners and precision components to customer drawings. Its customers range from other fastener companies; to the high-end luxury car market; to automotive companies; and to other high precision engineering companies to name but a few. The move will see the company take delivery of additional CNC machinery this year.
Overall, the move to the new premises gives the company the opportunity to increase its stock holding and product ranges, and to purchase further CNC machines to increase its manufacturing capacity and capability. This will enable a rise in employment for the area.
Jude, the Managing Director of GWR Fasteners Limited, said: “This is a massive step in our continued growth. This year, we celebrate 10 years in business, and we have always dreamed of being in a premises which would look as we’ve always felt inside, professional, precise and dedicated. We haven’t been in the premises long, but we’ve already had customers visit us and they have all been very impressed with how we have organised ourselves, and the overall aesthetics of the building, internally and externally. We are always striving to do better by our customers, and this will mean that we are more efficient and effective in delivering to them.”
GWR Fasteners Limited is a multi-award-winning company which has been recognised by entrepreneur Theo Paphitis of TV’s Dragons’ Den fame.
