History Stafa Group
Stafa Group has been in existence since 1977. With the knowledge and experience gained during these years, Stafa Group has become an important player in the current fasteners market. We are a stockholding importer and can deliver from our stock of some 25,000 articles. We also manage ourselves the stocks of many customers.
It all started in 1977 under the name Standard Fasteners Eindhoven. The young founders were experienced in the world of fasteners and decided to set up their own business not far from the centre of Eindhoven. The good service and quality, reliable deliveries and competitive prices meant that the business had to leave the old premises in Eindhoven within just a few years.
It moved into a new, larger location in Maarheeze in 1981. The name of the business was changed to Stafa Holland. The product range grew steadily, just like its market. While the founders still had their sights on the Netherlands in 1977, trucks were now driving to and fro with our materials to pretty much every country in Europe.
The internal packaging department was operating autonomously by 1995. A packaging specialist by the name of Gopak was founded with an ultramodern machine park. As well as Gopak, another sister business, Neofast was created. With Neofast, we anticipate the wishes of customers who wish to do business with fastener manufacturers without the intervention of other businesses.
Stafa Holland BV supplies its products and provides its services from Maarheeze to customers all over Europe. Many of our materials are imported from Asia. We finally set up our own offices in China and Taiwan due to the more intensive contact with mainly Asian factories.
The organization proved a success and Stafa Holland BV grows. This is clear among other things from the opening of a new warehouse in the second half of 2008. In 2012, we decided to change course. Not by how we worked, which stayed the same but specifically by grouping together the forces of Stafa Holland, Gopak and Neofast. By continuing to operate under one denominator, we wish to make a name for ourselves on the fasteners market and grasp new chances. Stafa Group was born! Stafa Holland will now continue under the name Stafa Trading, Gopak under the name Stafa Assembly and Neofast sees its name change to Stafa Direct. A new approach of course also means a fresh new house style and a new website. We hope that this change will place Stafa Group on a solid footing and we have big ambitions for the future!
In April 2013 an extra 2.500 sq metres of production space for Stafa Assembly was realized at Den Engelsman. Maarheeze. This brought the total area of our Stafa facilities at Maarheeze to 15.000 sq metres. Bringing the new plant under the same roof as Stafa Trading allows us to work more efficiently. Stafa Assembly wants to bring it’s packaging and labelling division to a higher, and more professional level, investing in this new complex coupled with the the procurement of new packaging machines, production capacity is greatly increased.
So….connect with Stafa and follow us from now on!
