Join Technifast as we celebrate 30 years in the fastener industry. We’ll be reflecting throughout our anniversary year with a unique look at the company’s history from our employee’s perspective and looking at how the precision engineering industry has evolved since 1990.

We’ve also got some Technifast goodies to give away to some lucky customers, so join us in cracking open the Champagne to celebrate our thirtieth anniversary in business.

Where it all started…

The family-owned and operated company was founded in 1990 by John Speed and has its headquarters in Corby, supplying precision engineered fasteners across multiple industries.  From its inception, the Technifast ethos has remained steadfast.  John explains, “All along our principle has been to provide a level of service, quality and value that will encourage customers to come back to us the next time they have a need for our products.”

As business prospered throughout the early Nineties, we built up a small, but dedicated team of sales staff and warehouse personnel in line with the company’s growth.  Long-standing customers will remember Carol Evans, who was a key member of the Technifast team during the 90's and 00's.

With the business growing steadily, John recognised the need to respond to customers increasing demands for custom-made precision turned components. We invested in our manufacturing capabilities and machinery, with relocation to bigger premises in 2005 to accommodate the natural progression from a fastener supplier into a respected manufacturer of precision engineered components and CNC turned parts.

Our business evolves

Fast-forward to 2020 and we have an established manufacturing division and pro-actively work with customers to manufacture bespoke fasteners for applications across a diverse range of industries such as automotive and aviation.  While our scope, staffing levels and operations have expanded, our quality and service has remained constant.

“Thirty years is a remarkable milestone for any company. We’ve achieved our success through the productiveness and dedication of our team, coupled with continued investment in our machining capabilities to provide the highest quality products and service,” commented current Managing Director, Louis Speed. “Throughout 2020, we’ll be celebrating our success by reflecting on where we started, what we’ve achieved and looking forward to our next three decades of precision component manufacturing.”

"I love coming into work every day! Here’s to the next thirty years!"

"The people I work with and the customers I speak to on a daily basis are what make my job so rewarding. 

We ship our components all over the world and I deal with a diverse range of customers with very different requirements, which keeps the job interesting and means I never stop learning! 

To me, it’s much more than a job, it’s my second family. The support of the team has been invaluable to me over the years and I really couldn’t imagine working anywhere else."

"Technifast is a rewarding, flexible and friendly place to work."

"Since undertaking my role in purchasing, I’ve visited suppliers in France and Germany to further my knowledge and build relationships.

I’d like to thank John and Louis for the opportunities they have provided me over the last twenty-four years.

I’m very much looking forward to celebrating our 30th anniversary and continuing to provide high-quality fasteners and an exceptional level of customer service into the new decade - and beyond!"

Thirty years is a major milestone – and we’re going from strength to strength!  John retired in 2011, but still has an active interest in the business, having handed the reins over to his son Louis, who is the current Technifast Managing Director.
