bigHead Bonding fasteners Ltd has moved to a new, state-of-the-art, factory in Verwood, UK.

Double the size of its previous facility, bigHead is strategically positioned for future growth. Leaving nothing to chance, bigHead has even had its own electricity sub-station installed to ensure consistent high-level power supply. Serious about the environment, bigHead has also put in a heat recovery system to minimize gas consumption in the winter.

“We thought it was important to invest in our long-term future now, particularly as so many of our customers are focusing on the reduction of polluting emissions through the adoption of lightweight composite materials. We are seeing strong growth across a number of industrial sectors and our new facility will help us support our customers with good design, the highest production standards and excellent service,” explains MD Matthew Stevens. “It was also important to us that we stayed as close as possible to our original home in Bournemouth so as not to lose any of our excellent team or disrupt the network of first class suppliers that we have worked with for many years. The team did a great job of moving, with only two days’ production lost.”

A year ago, bigHead, the innovative UK fastening company, became part of the Bossard Group. bigHead provides innovative fastening solutions to some of the world’s leading manufacturers, many of whom are migrating their products from traditional materials to modern composite alternatives. Bossard, a global company headquartered in Switzerland, is a leading provider of intelligent solutions for industrial fastening technology. With a 180 year history and employing over 1,800 employees at over 60 locations worldwide, in 2013 the Bossard Group achieved a turnover of £400m. Bossard is listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange.
