Honsel and VVG to merge and operate under Honsel brand from Jan 2021

VVG and Honsel have announced the merging and rebranding of both companies, which will now operate under the Honsel brand from January 2021.

Honsel is a well established and leading fastener supplier to the automotive industry and is a strong partner for reliable fastening technology with 90 years of manufacturing know-how, in the development, production and distribution of high-quality fasteners. The well-known team of experts presents many changes and innovations in connection with the renaming of VVG.

The new website www.honsel.de  merges all previous appearances and has already been published. A new catalogue for blind rivet fasteners, riveting tools and self-clinching fasteners is available too – and will be complemented by a catalogue for special industrial and automation solutions next spring.

As well as the change in website appearance, the group’s packaging has been redesigned to fit with the company rebranding. Furthermore, all Honsel tools are planned to get a new look in the coming months.

In addition to new fasteners such as the high-strength FERO®-LOCK blind rivets and a new range of crimped RIFBOLT® blind rivet screws, Honsel will be presenting two new battery rivets in the course of 2021 with the compact, brushless Rivdom® eBZ 1 for blind rivets up to 5 mm and Rivdom® eVNG 2 for blind rivet nuts up to M12.

Thanks to a 3,500 m2 expansion six years ago, the production area at Honsel's Fröndenberg HQ now spans 15,000 m2 as well as a recently enlarged logistics facility.
