Market-Leading global business seeks engineer for Hull facility

Böllhoff is a market-leading international business, operating in 25 countries across four continents, and with major investment plans for its Hull site.

With expertise in fasteners and assembly technology, the company has 3,200 employees and is continuously growing and investing in its infrastructure and manufacturing capabilities.

Turnover has more than doubled since 2009 and now stands at €671m, with a constantly growing product range and an incredible 10m fasteners manufactured every day across 13 production sites.

These modern production facilities are situated in Germany, France, Italy, Great Britain, Austria, Switzerland, the USA, Brazil, India and China, with processes including injection moulding, turning, cold forming, wire winding, and machinery and plant engineering.

Böllhoff is one of the few companies in its sector that offers customers full support – elements, tooling, installation system, application engineering and shop floor support. This means the company is an integrated part of many key OEMs (original equipment manufacturers).

Huge investment and growth has seen a new 9,700 square metre logistics centre open in Wuxi, China, and a £200m investment program in European infrastructure has resulted in two new  logistics centres and a new, dedicated production facility in Germany.
