In response to market feedback, SFS has invested in a new, Leeds-based assembly facility that will offer supreme quality, colour-matched AP rivets for rainscreen cladding.

The entire range of AP rivets are now available in 3 days’ lead time, in over 100 standard colours.

Andy Stolworthy, Director of Product and Market Development for SFS, said this new investment brings vital manufacturing processes to Yorkshire that were formerlu handled in France.

“The move has been driven by UK customer feedback for shorter lead times on high quality coloured rivets, and illustrates how SFS is equipped to listen to the challenges that its customers face and respond in the most effective way,” he said.

This will give customers the convenience of sourcing AP rivets in a range of RAL colours in hugely shortened lead times.

These AP rivets can be powder coated ready for despatch in a mere three days on orders placed before 12.00 noon, up to a maximum of 5,000 pieces.

Additional volumes and bespoke colours can be simply accommodated for, with lead times depending on the specific requirements.

Darren Gunga, Head of Operations at SFS talked about how the company is constantly listening to customers and looking at what can be done to make their lives easier and businesses more successful.

“Our new UK production facility for AP rivets is the tangible result of our approach, adding to our existing world-class painting technology for fastener systems,” he said.

“The new plant transforms the supply chain for specifiers and installers working on rainscreen projects.

“It is the first time that the market has been able to access the highest quality rainscreen fixings, complete with a premium colour finish, in such short lead times. Crucially, it means customers no longer need to compromise to suit tight build schedules.

“Our closeness to the market means we are in touch with the practical demands that customers face, which is why we’ve invested significant resources in Leeds to streamline the process from ordering to delivery on-site.”
