The UK’s Market Leaders In Pipe Clips

Talon Manufacturing Limited has been at the forefront of high quality pipe clip manufacturing for over 30 years.

Over the years, we’ve grown to become the market leader in pipe clips and cover profiles; specialising in the manufacture of five different styles of pipe clip, along with a range of associated fixings and fastenings.

In fact, the company is now completely unrecognisable from its beginnings as a specialist supplier of fixings, fastenings and consumables in the early 80’s.
