Window and door fastener specialist Rapierstar is helping leading Scottish trade fabricator Merlin Network (Scotland) to keep production on track and to a high standard as it experiences record demand for its PVCu windows.

Group MD and founder David Furness, his brother Mark Furness and Scott Rogers have been joined on the Rapierstar board by Andrew Carroll (Chartered Director and Fellow of the Institute of Directors) to assist with strategic planning and development.

Rapierstar has appointed the highly experienced Paul Balfe as its new Technical Consultant for the north of England – taking the team’s collective fastener know-how to more than 135 years.

Window and door fastener specialist Rapierstar has strengthened its position as the UK and Irish market leader with the number of its customer deliveries increasing by 12% during 2017, which resulted in year-on-year sales growth of 10%.

Rapierstar customers are benefiting from its latest investment in logistics and supply chain technology as it reports a near perfect record in on time in full (OTIF) deliveries over the last 12 months.

Rapierstar brought a touch of tropical to Macclesfield just before the autumnal showers arrived, throwing a themed bash at its headquarters to support two wonderful local charities, East Cheshire Hospice, Macclesfield and Caudwell Children in Stoke on Trent.

Rapierstar is celebrating 25 years as the UK’s market leading designer, importer and distributor of specialist fastener and fixings at this year’s FIT Show, revealing latest product developments for PVCU, aluminium and timber manufacturers, underpinned by its refreshed brand identity.

If you attended the Fit Show, in Telford, you probably had the opportunity to see how Rapierstar fixings and Proshield XT can add value to the products and services you offer.
