ABOUT Devanet

Devanét® is a brand that has become synonymous with the creation and production of custom made belts and buckles. Founded on the principle of "custom made", to offer customers greater choice and creativity when purchasing belts. So rather than buy offshore, it was decided to produce the belts, gifts and leather products in the UK. The decision was taken as speed of delivery, flexibility in design and finally the ability to supply on demand small quantities were key strategic elements.

devanét® started the brand with our sister company before going alone in 2011, we decided to go Limited in 2014 when we became part of the RWM group and since then we have formed partnerships with the best in the business for supplies of top quality components that make us stand apart from our competition and our new factory in Cheshire has enabled us to expand our operations and fabrication to offer customers a custom solution.

 

Today Devanét® has continually sought improvement in process and equipment in what has been a long learning curve and where local advice has been unavailable, many mistakes were made along the way to find solutions, simple things you took for granted and where so called experts gave you advice and it turned out to be wrong, meant that extensive research, trial and error, testing were fundamental elements in the manufacturing processes and raw material sourcing. Now with several key partners in provision of equipment and raw materials, Devanét® is able to design and produce virtually any buckle style and belt to order.

 

Equipment investment in manufacturing at a time when the manufacturing of belts and buckles was virtually non existent was a tough decision that had to be taken due to the frustration of not being able to offer small volumes to customers, this was also created by suppliers who were only interested in big ticket orders or who were inconsistent in supplies. Customers who ran small businesses and wanted their own identity and brand on their products came to us, it is a consequence of these enquiries and that fact that no one else in the UK was interested in making small batches of precision machined bespoke buckles from solid brass, that investments were made by Devanét and now the company with state of the art modelling software can offer any customer their own product.

 

So what is so different about the devanét brand, it is not about being able to make a belt that differentiates us, it is our willingness and determination to make products that challenge innovation that separates us from the traditional belt maker and above all make a product that can be personalised or branded for the customers own product range.


With our strategic partners, we are able to create both practical and high perceived value products for retail and corporate customers.

Devanét® offer a complete design service for buckles from cast alloys, machined solid brass bespoke designs, standard cast solid brass pin style buckles, pewter and resin cast buckles and pressed steels with logos, designs, 3d profiles, colour filled or stamped.


With inhouse computer 3d modelling, design and CNC machining, Devanet® can produce a new prototype in 24 hours if required, no longer do UK customers have to wait weeks or months for a product once approved for production, the solution is with a British company that has invested in design and equipment to enable it to offer customers a total solution from start to finished product.

 

In addition with finishing and plating services provided by the company from it's factory In Congleton, means that customers can have their product made from one source within a short cycle time.

More recently in January 2018 developments have been made on the the use of ceramics on our products, providing enhanced abrasion and tarnish finishes to buckles and metal products. The use of cataphoresis and technology in being able to provide a cost effective improvement for marine where salt spray is prevalent, work related, retail and sport environments where abrasion resistance is important and in the jewellery industry where tarnishing is an issue. The ability to coat our products and offer over 16 standard colours with the potential to mix custom colours is a service Devanét can now offer customers.

 

Devanét® offer the largest range of branding solutions in the UK for our belts, buckles and gifts and are continually developing new ideas to create products that help small and large customers achieve their goal in promoting their own brand from concept to packaged product.

 

Devanét® now designs and produces a myriad of different products from belt buckles, cufflinks, signage, awards, sublimation blanks, jewellery, dog collars, leather belts, web belts, printed belts and supplies some of the UK's best known brands with it;s products from work to sport.
