bigHead® invests in the futureAugust 24, 2015
For more than 40 years, bigHead® Bonding Fasteners Ltd offers simple and secure fastening solutions to designers and manufacturers using composite materials. From incremental design changes to more radical “light-weighting”, bigHead design solutions are well established. Companies in the field of automotive, marine, construction, petro-chemical and wind-power industries rely on it. Since March 2014, bigHead is part of the Bossard Group.
Recently, bigHead 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 Managing Director 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.”
