Component portal for packaging machine builders

Recently launched by Aldershot-based FATH Components is an online portal designed exclusively for packaging machine and system builders

The new portal features 18 complete FATH product families and includes many of the company’s most popular and biggest-selling products. Amongst these are workstation and suspension arms, profile connectors, castors, cable fixings, friction joints, lifting feet, hinges (available in both standard aluminium finish or anodised in a variety of colours) as well many other standard machine elements. 

Announcing the launch of the new portal, FATH Components’ UK Managing Director David Hayes says “By introducing this new portal, we aim to make the selection and sourcing of our machine elements even swifter and simpler. Customer feedback during pre-launch trials was extremely positive”.

Full product specification sheets can be downloaded from each section of the new portal, and FATH also offers designers and machine builders an instant response to technical queries for engineers who prefer to talk rather than type: 01252 346610 is the hotline number. 

FATH’s UK Operations Manager Emma Berriman observed “When we researched our customers prior to creating this new portal, more than 85% of the machine builders and OEMs we spoke with rated product quality and ease of access to technical information as two of their most important reasons for sourcing components from us. These comments obviously influenced the design of the new portal, and as always, we will continue to welcome further input as the gateway expands and develops”.
