Case Study

Fabory BV places its trust in Twente Express

Fabory is a leading global distributor of industrial fasteners such as bolts, nuts, screws and pins.


With its European headquarters based at Tilburg in the Netherlands, the company operates from 100 locations in 15 countries in Europe, North America and China with 1800 employees.

For many years Fabory has entrusted Twente Express to make daily collections from various UK based specialist fastener manufacturers and then deliver all products to Tilburg on an overnight service.

The relationship has evolved to now include daily collections from Tilburg with an overnight delivery service to the Fabory centre in the UK – based at Wednesbury in the West Midlands.

Daily collections are made at 5.00pm in Tilburg and all products collected are transported overnight and delivered into Wednesbury by 10.00am the following morning.

This partnership provides Fabory with new service options, thereby improving their position within a competitive market.

Mark Hackett, Warehouse Manager at Fabory says:

“Twente Express fulfil our supply chain requirements by ensuring that all products available are collected from our Tilburg logistics centre late afternoon and are delivered to us in the West Midlands the following morning – intact and within the agreed 18 hour delivery window.
This just in time operation is critical to our success in a very competitive market and Twente Express are an important link in our supply chain from Tilburg.”
