Contractors struggling to source essential fasteners for their building envelope projects can now use a specialist supply hotline, thanks to fastener manufacturer Fixfast.
The ‘Fastener Finder’ service has been set up to support contractors as the construction industry adjusts to the coronavirus pandemic.
“We adapted our business to stay open throughout the lockdown period,” explained Stephen Coppins, customer service manager at Fixfast. “During this time, our customer service team received a number of calls from contractors struggling to source fasteners because of business disruption elsewhere. Our own supply and service levels remain high, so we’ve moved quickly to set up this Fastener Finder service to ensure the UK’s contractors have a constant, reliable supply of the fasteners they need.
“The construction industry had an essential role to play building temporary hospitals during lockdown and will drive the UK’s economic recovery afterwards. This service is a small thing we can do to help.”
