Since 1922 the German owned EJOT Group has grown to become arguably the largest original manufacturer of fasteners and fastening solutions that span multiple sectors and individual markets that include Building and Construction, Automotive Engineering and Consumer Electronics.
Here in the UK the company’s philosophy of market proactivity is evidenced by its product range for all of the key roofing and cladding applications including rainscreen and façade installation, single ply membrane systems, ETICS, and solar energy roof systems.
Working with OEMs, EJOT has gained widespread approval for application specific products, achieving technical compliance through comprehensive development procedures, gaining acceptance from specifiers, engineers and procurement. Technical testing, development and support is provided by the EJOT Applitec Centre which is based within the company’s UK manufacturing centre in North Yorkshire, with additional expertise provided by sister laboratories around the world.
Globally EJOT operates 15 manufacturing centres in ten countries, employing over 3,100 people. In addition to the manufacturing operations the Group has 34 subsidiaries in 32 countries, with six research and testing centres in strategic locations. EJOT has also developed partnerships with several academic institutions, aimed at maintaining the development of advanced fastening solutions for the future.
