North Lincolnshire based Howarth Timber Windows and Doors, one of the largest manufacturers of Timber Windows and Doors in the UK have increased production by over 30% in 2010.


When looking for a way to increase their productivity and reduce assembly time, Howarth turned to the Rapierstar StarTurn Universal Woodscrew. The patented design of the StarTurn woodscrew allows the screw to be inserted into most types of timber and board products without the need for pre-drilling, this eliminates one of the major timber manufacturing processes.

After extensive factory trials, Purchasing Manager Marion Wright comments ‘the StarTurn woodscrews are very cost effective and speed up our assembly process as they remove the need for pilot drilling’.

Rapierstar Sales Manager, Mark Calpin says ‘using StarTurn woodscrews is an excellent way to increase performance and productivity, while reducing assembly time and operator fatigue. The patented thread form and point is quick starting and allows the screw to be inserted with no splitting of the material, while the competitive price makes the StarTurn your first choice fastener for all timber and board manufacture and assembly’.
