Survival in the new economic climate revolves around being proactive and reactive to our customers’ needs. Taking this into account Jubilee clips have introduced two new high quality product groups to their already extensive range to assist users with their fastening needs.
“Our acquisition of Elms Lightning Fasteners in 2013 has enabled us to increase our involvement in the heating, ventilation, air conditioning and sign fixing markets. We have recognised the need of our customers for the convenience of a pre-assembled clip specifically designed for use where slipping the clip over the end of the fitting is not possible. Our new range of Quick Release Straps manufactured at our Birmingham plant is available in zinc protected mild steel 11mm band width and the 304 stainless steel range in 7mm and 11mm”, says Managing Director Ian Jennings.
European Sales Manager Klaus Löffler is delighted with the reception the new products have received, “We have significant sales to telecommunications and rail sectors with these new products already and that shows the diverse potential markets for these products beyond HVAC and sign fixing.”
In addition and also manufactured in Birmingham, Jubilee can now offer a range of P clips which have an EPDM liner ensuring a superior temperature operating range. Giving enhanced resistance to creep, abrasion UV and ozone weathering the new P clip range is available in 304 stainless steel and zinc protected mild steel. UK Sales Manager Chris Wood declares, “There is a lot of variety in this market so getting the specification spot on was very important. Quality of product, as ever, remains the watchword at Jubilee.” This new range can also be purchased in a convenient 110 piece assortment pack.
Ian Jennings is keen to repeat that, “Jubilee is famous for the finest worm drive hose clip in the world and it simply wouldn’t meet our expectations if we didn’t see to it that all of our products are of the highest quality possible. That is why we have been so pleased with the integration of our Birmingham facility. All of the staff employed at the time of the acquisition have stayed with us and take real pride in the quality of the items that they produce. They were instrumental in getting the quick release clips to market quickly, without cutting corners, and are now part of the Jubilee philosophy and family!”
