The company began trading in 2012, building its foundations and growth on a wealth of combined knowledge and experience within the fastener industry, covering both Domestic & Export.
SFC (Europe) Initially focused on a stockholding position, primarily for studding, studbolts and nuts. Due to increasing success in our earlier years, particularly the Export market, it enabled the company to enhance its operations.


SFC (Europe) further strengthened its position by the acquisition of a specialist manufacturing company in 2016. This enabled us to manufacture and supply specialist safety critical components in accordance with client specifications and drawings.
The company is continuing to expand, acquiring new plant and warehousing, allowing us to maintain and grow our existing high-quality focus, proven by its ability to support and satisfy Blue Chip companies and SME’s.


To maintain and develop our position within our industry sectors, we are continually looking to adhere and adapt to rigorous International and Domestic industry standards.
Following our success in obtaining NORSOK D59 & D60, as well as Cyber Essentials accreditations, plans are in place, both long and short term, to continue our existing growth trajectory so we can ensure we’re servicing our clients in the best way possible.
