1 Million Pieces Produced Per Day
- Cold-forming is an especially efficient manufacturing process, with simple parts produced at 300 a minute, and more complex ones at up to 200 per minute.
250 Million Pieces Produced Per Year
- The speed of cold-forming means our fastener manufacturers can produce hundreds of millions of parts a year, allowing for an effective handling of full-scale production and high-demand periods.
89% of Cold Forming Waste Material is Recycled, With 0% Sent to Landfill
- Optimas has ambitious sustainability targets, and our fastener manufacturing division is no exception. Before a part is manufactured, any additive waste produced by prototyping is recycled. As parts are formed in their near-net state, cold-forming is also a highly sustainable production process.
Not only do our partners benefit from the team’s impressive technical capabilities, but they’re able to fulfil their onshoring and nearshoring aspirations and sustainability targets, as local sourcing significantly lessens transportation emissions.
Sourcing from Barton also allows our UK and Europe-based partners bypass many common supply issues, like increased lead times, and unexpected customs and shipping charges.
Our manufacturing expertise, technical heritage and engineering partnership approach is what sets us apart. Work with us to source sustainably and maximise your product quality.
