About Us

Forward Industrial Products Group began business in 1997, primarily as a distributor to a Midlands-based network of customers. Over the course of over 20 years’ experience in fastener supply, Forward have built strong global links and engaged key industry suppliers, ensuring our presence as a global distributor.

The knowledge we have acquired over the course of our operation has formed the basis for the full-service manufacture, import and distribution of fasteners, varied MRO solutions, integrated managed stores and fully-comprehensive services to the utilities industry.

Whether it’s a single bag, pallet or complete container, direct line feed, inventory management or scheduled deliveries, we can manage everything for you. In addition to our distribution, we are one of the last few cold forging manufacturers of male threaded fasteners in the UK – so if a ship goes down with your order on it, we can still provide your parts quickly. We also offer our customers samples prior to a full production run, ensuring them an all-important peace of mind regarding the outstanding quality of our products.

Specialising in manufacturing and supplying safety-critical fasteners and turned parts exactly to a customer’s drawing, we have successfully supplied some of the largest manufacturing companies in the world. We have experience in supplying for sectors such as automotive, aerospace, rail, power generation, infrastructure and the oil and gas markets; we have even supplied for the Ministry of Defence. Our customers range from one-site operations here in the UK to multi-site international companies all over the world.

We understand the demands of the manufacturing industry; as such, we can operate in a 24/7 environment, valuing the importance of every critical part in our customer’s final output. If a customer requires parts to be manufactured, existing parts to be sourced or a production line integration on the shop floor, Forward are the ideal partner.
