What does this mean for me?

For you, our customers, our gold certification is a demonstration that our sustainability promise has never been stronger. You can rest assured that Fixfast are continuing this journey to becoming a more sustainable business. We're committed to providing fasteners and components that are built to last, so they contribute to longer-lasting, safer constructions, in a future where the safety of every building isn't questionable - it's assured.

Fixfast has joined well-known companies such as AirFranceKLM, Coca Cola, Hitachi and Saint-Gobain in choosing to partner with EcoVadis. As technology and best practice advances, we'll continue to re-assess our policies and processes to ensure we are as good as we can be. We believe it'll be increasingly important to our customers to partner with fastener manufacturers who demonstrate a sustainable business model.
