2021 - That's a wrap.
We’ve not come here to gloat, or to show off all of our achievements from the past year. Quite the opposite. We’ve come here to thank all of our customers (you guys) for making this year a successful one for BS Fixings (we’d thank you all individually, but GDPR won’t let us email you all without permission, so this’ll have to do). We’re also going to take a look at some of our own highlights from 2021 too.
We’re a family-run business based in Lancashire. We were founded in 2014, as a way for our parent company, BS Stainless, to provide smaller quantities of their products to those who needed it. 7 years on and we’re a thriving online store with big brand names, and great quality stainless steel products (not gloating, just the facts). Part of that is down to our own hard work and determination, but the rest? That’s down to you guys.
This year, you’ve really helped us to grow. We’ve been able to expand both our team, and our product range. We now stock tools and DIY products from some of the biggest names in the business, including Estwing, Marshalltown, Harris, and Wilkinson Sword (okay, maybe we are gloating a bit now).
Looking back at the past year, here’s a few of our highlights…
We featured in Torque Magazine, not once, but twice. We’ve also got a funny feeling we’ll be in January’s digital edition too… Firstly, we discussed how we rigorously test each and every product that comes through our doors, to make sure we’re only passing on high-quality products. Secondly, our website manager Hannah was selected as one of the fastener industry’s rising stars, after her outstanding contribution to our growth. Fully deserved!
We met with new suppliers at UK Construction Week and brought in some innovative products that we know our customers will love. Take a look at our Bullfix range. We met these guys in person and could tell instantly that their plasterboard fixings mean business.
As an online business, trust is a massive part of how we operate. Our customers need to trust that they’ll get their orders on time, and when they arrive they’ll be the quality they expect. That’s why we’re made up to see our customers have given us a rating of 4.9/5 on Trustpilot, and we didn’t even have to bribe any of you. This year 96 of you gave us a rating. 95 of those were 5/5 stars (one bloke gave us 4 stars, which shook us to our very core).
The team also took on Tough Mudder. Across the team our fitness levels vary fairly dramatically, for example, Hannah ran the London marathon this year, whereas Tom has 12 profiteroles every Friday. The whole team survived it in the end, although after being on the receiving end of the electric shocks, I’m not sure how.
Thanks again, seriously
All gloating aside, we’re immensely proud of what we have achieved this year, and we can’t thank our customers enough for choosing to shop with us, or leaving us a review, or liking our social posts, or reading our newsletters. It genuinely means a lot.
Here’s to an even better 2022. Have a great Christmas everyone,
The BS Fixings Team
