Continued expansion for Auto-Fasteners 17 May 2024

Auto Fasteners Ltd, a global supplier of fasteners and metal engineered components to the automotive sector has expanded its presence by taking up 15,000 square feet of space at a new industrial scheme.

UK-based Auto Fasteners, which already has five units in Southam, Warwickshire, has signed a 10 year lease on trio of units at Sucham Park to support its continued expansion.

It will provide warehouse, assembly, quality inspection and office space for the business which supplies parts to Volvo Group, Scania, Daimler Group, Ford, Stellantis, VW Group, Aston Martin and Jaguar Land Rover to name but a few.

The business, which has 14 staff, formed by Scott Simpson in 2007 and moved to Southam in 2011. It is a major exporter with 90% of its business exporting around the world, supplying OEMs with engineered fasteners and metal components of the highest quality.

“We’re growing with our long-term customers and gaining new customers too, which has contributed to year-on-year turnover growth and a need for more space to support our expansion. It gives us the option to keep expanding and explore new opportunities. We have business in North America, Brazil, India, Japan and all over Europe. We are currently going through the process of opening a facility in North America, but our headquarters will always remain here in Southam, Warwickshire,” comments Scott Simpson, founder and managing director of Auto Fasteners.
