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 their Tilburg DC at 17.00 each working day and all products collected are delivered overnight to their UK distribution centre in the West Midlands by 11.00 the following working day.

The relationship has evolved to now include all of the onward UK distribution and direct deliveries to key UK accounts direct from the Tilburg distribution centre.

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

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.”

This is just one example of how Twente Express has added value in the supply chain to a major global organisation.
