Sustainability: a new word for what we have been doing all along
Anton Blaj, the founder of Blaj Fasteners, is a pioneer. He was one of the first entrepreneurs in Slovenia. Today, a second generation proudly runs the company.
Blaj Fasteners takes care of the natural environment and promotes the sustainable development of products, services, and the implementation of activities throughout the chain: efficient use of natural resources, efficient logistics, optimization of packaging, waste, etc.
Our attitude towards the protection of the environment has developed in line with the wider society, by implementing ISO14001 for managing the protection of the environment.
Blaj Fasteners bolts seal the most demanding facilities in mechanical engineering like hydro plants, ships, engines, containers for nuclear waste, lift points, generators, and train braking systems.

To be (and act) sustainable is our strategy
We have been selected among 9 selected Slovenian companies as members of the Academy for establishing sustainable business models in practice.
As we participated in the Sustainable business strategy and Sustainable business Model Academy, we recognised our past sustainability performance, integrated it thoroughly, and upgraded it into the company's first comprehensive, sustainable strategy. In 2018 we were also awarded by SPIRIT Slovenia Business Development Agency for establishing sustainable business models in practice.
During the process of developing our first sustainability strategy, our thinking changed, and so did our working process. We have changed our values and become a company in which sustainability is the ambition and commitment of the whole team. Working on the sustainability strategy brought us a lot of positive changes:
We started thinking and acting differently and transforming our value system. Today our values are agility, sustainability, responsibility, and passion.
Blaj Fasteners team is agile when dealing with customers; their philosophy encourages them to improve constantly, and they need to grow and develop.
