Rapierstar is marking 25 years of ‘turning something small into something great’ with its fasteners and fixings for the residential and commercial property sectors, with investment in a brand refresh to reaffirm its position in the UK and Ireland.
The Cheshire-based designer, developer and supplier of specialist fasteners and fixings, has reached its quarter century milestone this year, producing a family of award-winning branded product ranges, including StarPVCU, StarTurn, StarFix, StarPin & StarNail and StarAlu, which serves the majority of UK windows and doors manufacturers.
Since its inception in 1992 under the leadership of Group Managing Director, David Furness, Rapierstar has grown into a multi-million-pound turnover business. He explained how the company has reached this significant landmark: “We are consistent in the design, performance, import and delivery of our branded products, never waivering on quality, standards and procedures to produce reliable, specialist screws and fixings.” He continued, “Our established relations in the Far East and import expertise ensures our stock holding and supply can respond on a next day delivery year-round, which is a crucial service for industry.”
The life of a Rapierstar screw begins with design at its Cheshire headquarters, then transferred to the Far East for manufacture, imported back to the UK for with quality testing and standards checking at Rapierstar’s own unique facility, and distributed throughout the UK and Europe on a next day delivery service.
