Industrial fasteners and related categories constitute hundreds of related product standards, and literally hundreds of thousands of individual part numbers. Add in custom requirements for dimensions, mechanical properties and surface coatings, and the number of product possibilities is almost endless. Not surprisingly, no single manufacturing organization is able to internally produce even a large subset of fastener standards.
In terms of international shipping, the lowest cost unit of goods transportation is the standard 20 or 40-foot shipping container. Accordingly, most of our clients aim to package a range of fastener specifications into one or many whole shipping containers to save cost.
