Having recently been acquired by the global fastenings manufacturer EJOT, LIEBIG looks to a more accessible future and aims to set things straight.
EJOT was acquired recently by EJOT, as part of the acquisition of Finnish company, SORMAT. Add to the mix that SORMAT itself acquired LIEBIG from Simpson Strong-Tie International Inc. back in 2012, and it’s easy to spot the confusion – something management at EJOT’s UK manufacturing centre near Leeds, are keen to put right.
Robert Hardstaff, EJOT’s managing director in the UK, comments: “EJOT manufactures high-performance fasteners for the modern building envelope. Our pedigree in terms of technical innovation is second to none and therefore, a perfect fit for LIEBIG. By combining our global knowledgebase with LIEBIG’s specialist teams we will ensure that the product range is easily accessible, continues to be performance-driven, and supported by responsive technical guidance”.
Paul Papworth has recently joined the EJOT team, bringing a wealth of knowledge born from a career spanning more than 30 years in construction fixings and anchoring. Paul worked for a leading anchor manufacturer in the UK and Asia region for most of that time. He outlined his working knowledge of the Liebig product range:
“We will focus our attention on the major LIEBIG products and variants. That’s the Ultra-plus and Super-plus undercut anchors, and the high-performance LIEBIG Anchor and Safety Bolt. These are hallmarked classics and we want engineers to know where they can come to for the products and for guidance. They also need to be aware that the modular nature of the Liebig range makes all of these anchors easily adaptable, which means they can get bespoke lengths and assemblies quickly, efficiently and of course, cost-effectively.” Paul has thoroughly briefed LIEBIG’s product USP’s to his new colleagues.
Gary Robson is EJOT’s sales engineer in the north of England and in turn, has been working closely with Paul to familiarise him with EJOT’s own concrete fixings range. “Customers looking to source LIEBIG products can now access technical information via the EJOT UK website. We recognise that LIEBIG anchors are specification driven, but the online path to access performance detail is the same as any webshop product. The modular flexibility of LIEBIG products simply means that with the correct technical guidance, purchase and supply is just as fast. The ethos of EJOT’s business model is one of technical support, so we would encourage any customer in need of further assistance to make contact”.
The EJOT Group employs over 3400 personnel worldwide. In the UK, EJOT’s testing and development facility, Applitec, is pivotal in providing support to its national team of sales engineers. EJOT UK is one of only six manufacturers to gain full membership status with the Construction Fixings Association.
