Hafren Security Fasteners – 27 years and counting… 03 August 2022

27 years ago Hafren Fasteners began in its mission of ‘stamping out the impact of theft globally’, through the wholesale supply of specialist anti-tamper/anti-theft security fasteners.

Instead of celebrating as usual, Hafren spent its business anniversary working towards operational excellence with the help of an external LEAN consulting company. Hafren’s TeamOrange spent the day mapping out business processes and considering ways to increase productivity, remove waste, improve efficiencies and accuracy.

 “We thank our distribution partners for their business over the past 27 years and continued support as we continue our mission. A big thank you goes to the wonderful individuals that make TeamOrange the enthusiastic thriving business that we are today.  2022 has started strong and we’ve got great plans in place – exciting times ahead, watch this space,” proudly states Matthew Lynes, managing director, at Hafren Fasteners.

“Hafren always puts innovation and research & development at the forefront of our operation. Continually striving to be ‘one step ahead’ of the ever changing and ever increasing threats. We have been told to watch this space because we have a big launch to make in Q3 which will benefit a large number of customers, help to reduce our carbon footprint and continue moving us forward on our mission, ‘stamping out the impact of theft globally’,” says Ian Fletcher, head of quality at Hafren.
