Hafren expands to meet the growing demand for security fasteners
Monday 9th March 2020 is a momentous day for Team Orange at Hafren Security Fasteners as they cut the ribbon to their new purpose-built storage facility adjacent to their head office in Newtown, Mid Wales.
MD, Matthew Lynes, said “it is a great day for Hafren as the global home of security fasteners expands again. This new building is more than 3 times larger than our current warehouse facility; we have built it to meet and exceed the growing demands of our clients, to safeguard jobs, create more jobs and to keep us one-step ahead in everything we do”.
To help celebrate the completion of the storage facility Hafren was visited by Assembly Member for Montgomeryshire, Russell George AM, who cut the ribbon for the official opening. He added “I’m delighted that this growing company is securing well paid jobs in the Newtown area. Hafren Fasteners is committed to mid Wales, and this investment further secures the company’s future to the local area which supports the local economy”.

Having more storage space will allow for increased capacity and flexibility to offer distributor customers an even better service, in terms of stock availability and delivery speed. It helps to future proof the business ahead of supply chain threats and transportation issues that could crop up due to external unforeseen incidents, such as Brexit, Coronavirus and the like. It also enables extra space for expanding the range of specialist security fasteners and adding more unique and bespoke solutions to their already unrivalled range.
Matthew Lynes continues to say “2020 is our 25th year in this market… it has already seen the launch of one new range and we’re putting a lot of time and investment into R&D & innovation. We are the first globally to stock a range of A4 Stainless Steel security screws, which will no doubt be popular with customers looking for a security fastener that can withstand the harshest environments. Sustainability is key to our business. In line with our ISO 14001 certification we have launched our new range of 100% recycled cardboard packaging and have just added our first fully electric vehicle to our fleet… watch this space on new products and many more exciting developments to come!”
