Fastmount Celebrates 20 Years of Innovation and Excellence in Panel Mounting Solutions

June 5, 2024

Fastmount, a global leader in innovative mounting systems, is proud to announce the celebration of its 20th anniversary. Over the past two decades, Fastmount has revolutionized the industry with its high-quality, reliable, and versatile panel mounting solutions, becoming the preferred choice for marine and fast growing in architectural and furniture sectors worldwide.

Founded in 2004, Fastmount began with a vision by Founding Director Gregg Kelly to create a new system to replace the hook and loop fastening that was often used when fitting out superyacht interiors. At the time, removable panels on yachts faced a number of challenges, so Gregg saw this as an opportunity to develop a purpose-built solution – and the Fastmount Panel Mounting System was born.

Throughout its history, Fastmount has committed to precision engineering and continuous innovation, so following the first ever products (the PC-M1B and the PC-F1A) was a comprehensive range that would cater to many different applications and industries.

“Reaching this 20-year milestone is a testament to the dedication and hard work of the entire team, as well as the loyalty and support of our customers and distributors,” said Andre Holderbaum, CEO of Fastmount. “Fastmount has always strived to push the boundaries of what is possible in panel mounting solutions, and we are excited to continue this journey.”

Notable achievements by Fastmount include the development of the award-winning Stratlock Rail System, a modular framing system for building interior ceiling and wall framework onto uneven substrates, in order to precisely attach interior panelling with Fastmount’s Stratlock Range of hidden panel fasteners. The Stratlock® Rail System was released in 2021 and has since won an Australian Good Design Award, awarded an Iconic Award for Innovative Architecture by the German Design Council, and a Bronze Award at the Best Design Awards by the Designers Institute of New Zealand.      

As Fastmount celebrates this significant anniversary, the company remains focused on its core values of quality, innovation, and customer satisfaction. Looking ahead, Fastmount plans to expand its product offerings, explore new markets, and continue to deliver exceptional solutions that meet the evolving needs of its customers.
