Forward Industrial Products Group

Forward Industrial supports world-class manufacturers by sourcing c-class consumables to providing bespoke/turnkey service solutions. Forward started its business activities in 1997 as a distributor of fasteners. In those days our distribution network was limited to the Midlands. However, we now distribute to all corners of the world and can offer every type of logistical system to meet your needs. Whether it is a single bag, pallet or complete container, direct line feed, inventory management or just scheduled deliveries, we can manage it. Couple our own manufacturing with our Global partnerships and you have a distribution network that proves to be extremely competitive and highly efficient. It is an absolute priority that we offer you a service that is second to none. When you need a product urgently no matter how simple or complex, we understand you need it now. We carry massive stocks of most products you will require but should we not have it we will identify, source locally or globally and get it to you by the fastest but most economical method.
