Welcome to Bion

1964 - 2014: 50 Years of Precision Perforating

Bion have been supplying quality perforated metal and plastic products within the UK and Europe since 1964, and throughout that time the Bion vision “supply the right products to the right people at the right time” has remained constant. As a leading UK perforator of stainless steel, mild steel, aluminium and plastics, we are renowned for our high manufacturing quality and the reliability of our service.

With commodities increasingly outsourced, the UK's manufacturing industry competes by responding to production demands from clients who can't wait weeks for vital components. Having a responsive local supplier of perforated metal and plastic components means Bion's clients keep returning to us knowing we are a specialist UK perforator and they can rely on us to deliver.
