Our specialist manufacturing team offers bespoke precision-engineered components for businesses at an international level. We regularly produce pins, engineers keys, inserts, spacers and dowels to customer specification or drawing.

Over the last three decades we have invested considerably in our machining capabilities and are very proud of our excellent reputation for meeting customer requirements on time and on budget, whether a high-volume run of parts or a low-volume order such as prototype manufacturing.

Most of our special pins and turned parts are manufactured using CNC machines to obtain high precision and excellent surface finish. We specialise in stainless steel, but also produce in other materials. Technifast is an ISO:9001 registered company. This underpins our reliability as we continually monitor and manage quality across all our operations.

  • HMS Victory Coach Bolts - Restoration Project

    Technifast were chosen as a supplier to WL West & Sons to support their involvement with a restoration project aboard one of the world’s most iconic ships, HMS Victory. Launched in 1765, Nelson’s flagship is undergoing the biggest restoration programme in her history following guidelines set out in the National Historic Ships UK (NHSUK) Publication ‘Conserving Historic Vessels’.


  • Innovative Inserts For A World Record Attempt

    Technifast are manufacturing fixings and inserts to secure Team Britannia’s massive inflatable tubes to the outside of its boat on the team’s round the world record attempt.

    The fixings and inserts from industry leaders Technifast have been specifically developed to allow the fitting of the two white tubes, which each weigh around 250kg, to the side of boat, without large numbers of people working on either side of the hull.


  • Custom fastening solutions for innovative Aliss roof rack systems

    Technifast’s manufacturing division has an established and much valued working relationship with Corby-based Van Pro Engineering, who has over thirty years’ experience in the commercial van industry, working closely with companies that fit-out vans with shelving, ply lining, roof racks and ladder storage solutions.

    Since 2013, Technifast’s manufacturing division has been producing a light-weight aluminium roof rack load stop for Van Pro Engineering’s versatile, purpose built AliSS roof rack system. The load stop was designed to allow the roof rack to be fully adjustable, easy to move and to secure the load in a safe manner.

    More recently, Technifast has been involved with manufacturing custom-built clevis pins for another of the company’s innovative projects. The new product, currently in pre-production, has been cleverly designed to allow ladders to be bolted to the interior of commercial vans. Traditionally, ladders have been fixed to the exterior of the van, which poses issues with damage caused when drilling through the rear door of the van, or the ladder causing reversing sensors to activate. There is also a huge advantage in having ladders stored internally in the van, making them much more secure.

    Technifast’s quick release clevis pin solution allows the ladder to removed from the housing inside the van in a fast, efficient manner, whilst keeping the ladder safely secured in position when the van is on the move.

    Local Companies Working Together:
    Paul Britton of Van Pro Engineering explained why he thought Technifast were an ideal addition to Van Pro Engineering’s supplier listing. “The service that Technifast provides to us has been amazing. We strive to use local companies wherever possible and enjoy a long-standing relationship with Technifast.”
