Industry Update is proud to announce that Bülte Plastics has been selected as our Plastic Hardware Company of the Month, for its outstanding range of plastic protections parts, plastic and plastometal fasteners.
Established in Germany in 1956 by Norbert Bülte, who was later joined by his son Stefan, Bülte Plastics soon decided to export its German manufactured products to France, opening a site there in 1986. Over the years, the company consistently diversified its product range, opening a further site in the UK in 1999 to better serve its expanding customer base.
Indeed, with over 60 years of experience, Bülte Plastics is well-placed to offer expert advice and support to its customers, a service which is underpinned by a dedication to addressing the needs of the marketplace. “We launch new products every year, adapting to the market and responding to requests. If something is missing, we want to fill that gap,” explained Alexandra Prost, Marketing and Communications. “We offer new shapes and materials every year and we do our best to create what customers need.”
Specialising in the design and manufacture of plastic protection parts and fasteners, Bülte Plastics boasts a catalogue containing over 30,000 products, including washers, spaces, nuts, and screws, to name a few. These are ideal for a similarly wide range of industries, including military, medical and aerospace. All washers, screws and nuts are compliant and meet specific standards for DIN, ISO and NFE. This extensive range of products is available in a large choice of materials, including ABS, PA6, PA6.6, PP, PE, PVDF, POM, PC, and PTFE. Bülte Plastics also integrates the REACH and RoHS requirements and guidelines in its manufacturing and procurement processes.
As well as this eclectic product range, Bülte Plastics also offers bespoke services, with the ability to make custom-made products based on drawings in order to suit individual needs. Indeed, Bülte Plastics is dedicated to helping its customers in any way possible, and ensures everything is in German, French and English in order to ease communication both within the group and with its customers. “Our staff members are always learning new languages to ensure we can communicate effectively across Europe,” explained Alexandra.
“Because we’re a small company, we can build close relationships with our customers and work with them to ensure they receive the best solution. If they make a request on the website, a team member will contact them and establish a direct relationship. Our team will help every customer choose the best product, and we are there to support them from development to implementation.”
To add to this impressive offering, Bülte Plastics has been improving consistency across the group’s three locations. “We have computer systems linked between the group, in the UK, France and Germany. This has been improved to help us work as a whole and better serve our customers.
“We’ll be continuing to develop and release new products in response to the evolving needs of the marketplace, maintaining the reliability and quality expected from our leading German manufacturing processes.”
As part of its calendar of events, Bülte Plastics attended the Fastener Fair in Stuttgart this year, and will be attending the next event in May 2021.
