About the employer

We are a trading division of Metals Direct Ltd, a specialist stainless steel, non-ferrous metal and engineering plastics supplier based in Great Yarmouth who are an ISO 9001:2015 accredited company. We guarantee our customers a service of the highest quality, supported by a dedicated team of professionals who always deliver to our client’s specifications. Metals Direct are also a member of the BSSA (British Steel) the benefits of which Fast City Fasteners also have access to. Drill bits and adhesives are always kept in stock but for non-standard items we are able to source any item on a quick turnaround and always at the best possible price. We’ve developed a reputation for providing obscure fasteners that are not commonly found on the market, helping our clients to secure products that are crucial to the success of their business. Fine City Fasteners are also official stockists working very closely with Toolbank, providing a wide range of items that are suitable for use in any trade. We use our own branded delivery vehicles to ensure our customers receive their orders on time and rarely charge for deliveries in the local area. This includes delivering directly to businesses or work sites if required. Providing customer service of the highest order is important to us as new and existing customers require a reliable and flexible supplier that can adapt to the changing needs of their business. We see ourselves not only as experts in the fastening industry but as specialists in working with people to help them achieve their goals.
