An ideal addition to the Böllhoff product range

The Böllhoff Group consolidates its position in Italy

Böllhoff completed its acquisition of the Italian company Unifast on 1 December 2015.

This family-run business employing 50 staff was founded in 1985. The company designs, produces and sells fasteners for industrial and automotive markets, with an estimated turnover in 2015 of 18 million euros. Unifast’s product portfolio is an ideal addition to the Böllhoff range and will now be sold internationally through the Böllhoff Group’s sales network.

 

Unifast has grown steadily since 1985 and now operates state-of-the-art production facilities for insert nuts (KAPti‑nut), quick-release fasteners (FAST turn) and custom-made special parts.

KAPti‑nut is a high-strength captive threaded fastening system which is ideal for use in thin steel or aluminium sheet.

FAST turn is a quick-release fastener that is used all over the world wherever parts need to be quickly assembled and disassembled or where access for maintenance is required, for example in electrical cabinets, air-conditioning systems, compressors, and control panels on motor casings. The automotive industry is a major consumer of quick-release fasteners for noise-reducing covers.

With this acquisition, the Böllhoff Group will consolidate its position on the Italian market. It has also been present in Italy since 1985, with an office in Milan currently employing a total of 45 people.
