We have a wide customer base including Aerospace, Defence, Petrochemical, electronics and OEMs in a diverse range of activities. Our dedicated and responsive team are customer service focused offering many years of technical experience and product knowledge providing both existing and new customers with cost effective solutions.
Below are just some of the industries we service:
Civil Aviation Approved
For the aerospace industry we try to compliment the high standards of the Civil Aviation Authority by offering a comparable quality of service and response. This is a safety critical industry where every effort is made to satisfy the demands of our customers. With a strong emphasis on quality together, using our very experienced team, we offer support for your future success.
The Marine Industry
Environmental conditions in this industry are extremely corrosive and require materials with high anti-corrosive qualities. Standard Stainless Steel fasteners are made in several grades in varying strengths A2-50, A2-70, A4-70, A4-80
Recommended for these conditions would be A4 316 Grade for its ability to withstand highly corrosive salt sea spray whilst maintaining its finish. If strength is a priority A4-80 should be your choice due to its minimum High Tensile value of 800 N/mm2.
For fasteners used in more sheltered areas out of direct contact with salt sea spray, A2 Stainless Steel, Brass, or even coated steels may be an option e.g. Nickel, Chrome, Zinc, Galvanised, Xylan etc.
To complement our fasteners we can offer a range of Marine tackle including shackles, eye bolts, cleats, pulleys, hooks, blocks, bollards, hinges, winches etc. in 316 & 304 Stainless Steel.
The Petro-Chemical Industry
On-shore and Off-shore speed is extremely important, for production to be held up becomes a costly expense and one we recognize and act upon with priority. This is a specialist industry using specialist products occasionally manufactured from exotic materials for various reasons i.e. improved corrosion resistance. Coatings are a popular and cost effective way to defend against corrosion i.e. Xylan, PTFE, Emralon, Fluon Halar, Eposeal and Zinc.
