‘Winning in the Future Innovations category at LAMMA is fantastic recognition of the planning and research we have invested in developing Versalok®. We set out to provide our customers with a truly versatile and cost effective intermediate metal post system, investing more than £1million in new machinery to fulfil this goal. Versalok® is compatible with all woven wire fence patterns making it a better alternative to other metal intermediate posts on the market and its increased durability allows us to guarantee it for 30 years. In such uncertain times we have to look forward, developing our products as future proof as possible. I am pleased to say Hampton’s future is bright.’ said Mark Johnson, Managing Director of Hampton Steel Ltd.
More and more fencers are opting for metal posts over wood, ‘The Versalok® posts are the best posts I’ve ever used; I’ve used wooden ones for years. I’ll certainly not be using wooden ones again!’ said Shamus McAlees of Rosepark Farm, Ballymoney www. roseparkfarm.co.uk
