BigHead moves to new factory, doubling factory space
01 July 2015
BigHead Bonding Fasteners has moved to a new factory in Verwood, UK. Double the size of its previous facility, bigHead has left nothing to chance, installing its own electricity sub-station 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," says managing director, Matthew Stevens.
"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. 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 became part of the Bossard Group of Switzerland. The company provides novel fastenings to some of the world’s leading manufacturers, many of whom are migrating their products from traditional materials to modern composite alternatives.
