AF Fasteners began life in the Derbyshire Peak District over 90 years ago. The privately owned company originally operated as specialists in cold forging, manufacturing specialist bolts for the mining and quarry industries. Just over 40 years ago the company harnessed 50 years of experience and knowledge, and entered the aerospace industry as manufacturers of precision fasteners.
Over the years, the company grew steadily and substantially. In October 2000 AF Fasteners re-located to nearby Glossop, just a mile away from where the company was founded, where larger premises could facilitate the steadily increasing demand.
AF Fasteners has remained a privately owned company, with a team of 30 dedicated staff. Now a global supplier, AF Fasteners long history of growth, development and aerospace contribution has continued to this day. In Spring 2015, AF Fasteners embarked on an expansion program to modernise the production line and install a range of new high quality machinery. A current increase in machinery and extensive staff training will ensure that AF Fasteners will continue to develop and offer the aerospace industry a high quality, reliable and evolving service.
