Baker & Finnemore Ltd Starlock® and Precsion Pressings

Baker & Finnemore is situated in central Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter, ideally positioned at the hub of the UK's national motorway network. Since being established in 1850, the company, now widely known as 'BakFin', has come a long way from its origins as a producer of high quality dip-type fountain pen nibs. From these beginnings the company has progressed to supplying many different industries with components that could either be pressed or strip-formed from steel, and is today best known as the manufacturer of the world famous Starlock® Push-on Fastener.

The company now has almost 160 years of experience in the design and manufacture of precision pressings in ferrous and non-ferrous materials with particular emphasis on the spring quality type. We have achieved a world-wide reputation for being able to supply quality products for inclusion in many applications for a wide range of industries.
It's the success of the Starlock® that has earned BakFin its reputation today as the UK's premier manufacturer of push-on fasteners, and although we produce high volumes of customised precision pressings, the Starlock® Push-on Fastener range forms the lion's share of output, with 500 million Starlocks manufactured annually, destined for use in around 50 countries across every continent.

Baker & Finnemore News

Baker & Finnemore News

Two key members of the Baker & Finnemore are Paul Watkins-Burke, and Ian Styles, both of them joining the company approximately 5 years ago.

Paul's responsibilities include purchasing, IT, production planning and general site management. He consistently took the initiative and immersed himself in almost all processes at Baker & Finnemore and successfully reduced costs, improved productivity and visibility to the production process and brought Baker & Finnemore's computer systems into the 21st century. Starting as Purchasing Manager, Paul has now been promoted to Operations Manager to more accurately reflect the wide range of tasks he takes on board.

Ian Styles joined the company as a young enthusiastic sales clerk with ambition, an open mind and a willingness to learn. Having only two years’ experience in a sales position, Ian had his work cut out to learn Baker & Finnemore's extensive product range and how the company produces this range, however what was lacked in experience was more than made up for in initiative and Ian quickly gained a 'no nonsense' reputation where customer service comes first. Now promoted to Sales Manager continues to run this department with this customer orientated attitude, and continues to gain experience and a disciplined knowledge of all business aspects by furthering his education to Degree Level.
