At the heart of Rapierstar's extensive new facility near Congleton in Cheshire, is a purpose built technical test laboratory and customer information centre.
This industry leading research and development resource enables Rapierstar to continually check fasteners and fixings under various types of load occurring in practical use. Fixings are also continually tested for speed of insertion, plating depth, recess fit, accelerated corrosion and other vital performance criteria.
Managing director, David Furness commented, “We sell experience and quality – our products are manufactured to our design and to our exacting standards. As well as extra storage capacity ensuring continuity of supply for our customers, the new facility affirms our commitment to quality, putting Rapierstar at the forefront of raising the standards of speciality fasteners”.
“Our industry demands high standards and we set out to exceed these in terms of both product quality and service offered”, explained David
