VJ Technology (VJT), a leading supplier of technical fasteners, tools and fixings to the UK construction and civil engineering sectors, has finalised its acquisition of Mainline Products Ltd, leading specialist suppliers of coloured fasteners, profiles and accessories to the rainscreen façade industry.

The move represents a major coup for VJT, as Mainline Products are a trusted, quality product provider to the rainscreen façades industry. Mark Tomlin, CEO at VJT, which has branches in Kent and Glasgow, said: “This is an exciting acquisition for VJT, as Mainline Products has a superb reputation for high-quality coloured fasteners for the specialist façade market and could see the benefits of greater market reach through our strong technical sales team.  VJT already supplies a range of complementary products to the façades market and we believe that our combined extended product range, coupled with the technical expertise and service excellence for which both businesses are renowned, will create an even more compelling proposition for customers.”

Following the acquisition, there will be no change of company name, which will remain as Mainline Products Ltd and be referred to as ‘part of the VJ Technology Group’. Furthermore, there will be no structural changes to the Mainline Products Ltd managerial team, who each bring with them their extensive market knowledge and product experience.

Mark Tomlin added: “This is VJT’s first acquisition as an independent company, backed by our investors, Primary Capital and it is important that Mainline Products is recognised as being a fully-integrated part of the growing VJT team and group.”
