Fixings supplier makes the move to larger premises

Fixing Point, a supplier of fixings to the roofing, walling and cladding industry, has moved to new headquarters in Gloucester.

The firm, which underwent an extensive rebrand earlier this year with the launch of a new logo design and website, has made the move after a successful period of growth over the past 12 months.

The new building includes open-plan office space, training and conference facilities, staff recreation rooms, a larger production area, and a laboratory where products will undergo rigorous quality testing.

The facility will also allow for a number of products to be manufactured on-site including moulded heads and Gridtite spacer systems. In addition to its current range of powder coated fixings, the firm will be powder-coating its hex head fixing range due to market demand.

This in-house manufacturing capability will allow the business to effectively manage stock and production, thereby reducing lead times for its customers.

The company is forecasting continued growth to grow, which will result in further recruitment opportunities within its sales and production team.

Ian Hill, managing director at Fixing Point, said: “We’re delighted to end a fantastic year in our new headquarters, and we believe this will be instrumental to us maintaining and building on the high standard of service our clients have come to expect.

“We are predicting significant growth in the business over the next four years, and from this new base we aim to expand to service new customers and markets.

“We have always been focused on quality, reliability and excellent customer service, and I believe this move demonstrates the scale of our ambition as we seek to become one of the leading suppliers in the marketplace.”
