Forward Industrial Products Group offer the complete service for the manufacture, import and distribution of fasteners, turned parts, varied MRO solutions, integrated managed stores and fully comprehensive services to the utilities division.
We are proud to state that we are one of the last few cold forging manufacturers of male threaded fasteners in the UK which complements our impressive overseas supply-chain. Although we distribute standard fasteners, our specialism is in the manufacture and supply of safety critical special fasteners and turned parts to your drawings and engineering requirements.
How do we supply?
We can offer complete logistical design for your vendor management system to make sure that you get a system that works for your company. It may be that you require bespoke racking or bins, or that you need timed deliveries to meet your production requirements to multiple workstations, we will develop a system that is tailored to suit your needs. With computer software specifically designed for inventory management we can offer everything from Direct Line Feed , bar-coding, EDI max/min stock levels along with any performance indicators you want to help you do what you do best - manufacture!
Where do we source from?
Our trusted Partnership manufacturing sites are based in Europe, Taiwan, India and China have been developed with us over a long period of time. Although the number of manufacturers we deal with is small and succinct, we believe that they are some of the best and they fully understand and meet our high expectations. The majority of our manufacturers are exclusive to Forward. All of the manufacturers have been rigorously audited for quality, capacity and infrastructure along with health and safety and their commitment to ethical business practices. All of the companies have either ISO 9001 or TS 16949.
What if the ship sinks?
We have our own manufacturing facilities for both cold forging and turned parts that replicate our supply chain abroad, should the delivery of product be delayed, damaged or even sink, we can manufacture at no extra cost here in the UK to keep your production lines going until the problem has been resolved. No other distributors we know can offer this and often when our competitors product is delayed they will ask us to infill manufacture for them. Deal with Forward and you will get a world class manufacturer and global importer in one!
