Thomas Smith Fasteners were recently approached by Chris Fletcher, the Marketing and Policy Director of the Manchester Chamber of Commerce about providing samples of manufactured special fasteners, for one of his displays promoting UK manufacturers to foreign visitors.
We were delighted to help Chris and supplied him with some A4-100 bolts and nuts which were manufacted in our works at Wigan.
Chris came to collect the samples and enjoyed a factory tour. He commented “Your company is exactly the type of business we are looking out for and I hope we can feature more stories in the future”.
Thomas Smith Fasteners were very proud to sponsor a local running race which attracted 250 runners from all over the North West.
The Gin Pit 5, hosted by Astley & Tyldesley Road Runners, is an annual 5 mile trail race where local clubs race each other to gain points in the Central Lancs Grand Prix. The race was won by local runner Neil Pendlebury.
All finishers were given hi-viz t-shirts which are ideal for training on dark winter nights.
Manager Gary Stevens recently visited Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railway whilst on holiday in Wales. Thomas Smith Fasteners supply many vintage and heritage railways with imperial bolts, including the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railway.
They operate two unique narrow gauge railways with completely different personalities.
Together, they offer the chance to explore the beauty of Snowdonia from over 40 miles of narrow-gauge railway.
Gary chose to take his family on the Caernarfon line but got off at the lovely village of Beddgelert. His daughter Annabel got her picture taken on the footplate of the train.
A great day out for all the family which is highly recommended.
