The latest move by Scovill Fasteners aims to grow its footprint in Europe.
The Clarkesville, Georgia-based manufacturer of apparel fasteners, announced that Durable Fasteners will be its new agent representing the company in the United Kingdom and continental Europe.
Based in London, Durable Fasteners is a major wholesaler of press fasteners, jeans buttons, rivets, eyelets and industrial fasteners. Through feedback from Durable Fasteners’ team of agents, Scovill’s aims to enhance its offering for the EU market.
“The combination of Durable Fasteners 20 plus years’ experience in the European market with Scovill’s over 200-year history in the fastener industry will allow us to create a truly dynamic partnership,” Brian Moore, Scovill Fasteners VP of global apparel sales, said. “Durable Fasteners team on the ground, plus our trusted Scovill products and high level of partnership and service, will help us improve our coverage, workforce and expertise.”
Durable Fasteners is also an agent for Morito Japan, which produces fasteners and accessories for the footwear and apparel industries. The company works closely with designers, buyers, production teams and manufacturers to provide high-quality products—am asset in Schovill’s book.
“The partnership will increase Scovill’s coverage among brands and retailers in the U.K. market,” Moore said. “We’ve seen how Durable has represented Morito Japan, and we’re looking forward to achieving the same success in the U.K. and throughout Europe.”
