Innovation, Design and Manufacturing
bigHead fasteners were invented in 1966 to solve a fastening problem that most traditional fasteners could not; How to achieve a strong and efficient fastening in a composite material. bigHead came up with a unique design and the first ever bonding fastener: a flat perforated head which locks the product securely into position and spreads the load, is welded to a wide choice of studs, nuts, collars, pins and other fixings to offer versatility. Over 40 years the bigHead design has helped 1000’s of customers and has come to hold a unique position in the fastener industry.
Our customers are often migrating their products from traditional materials to modern composite alternatives. “Light-weighting” in the automotive industry and the growth of modular assembly in the construction sector are good examples of this. bigHead can offer fastening solutions not only for the product design but also for the manufacturing and assembly process, where cycle times and process efficiency are paramount.
We have some core values that help define bigHead and to which we will always stay true, no matter the commercial pressures or circumstances.
