Add to my favorite
The outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic created a surge in global demand for medical equipment, with the subsequent knock-on effect of a huge demand for sheet metal fasteners, specifically for those companies producing essential equipment, including ventilators. International specialist TR Fastenings focused on being as responsive as possible to meet this demand and is now further investing in its sheet metal range to accelerate growth of this product portfolio.
TR has been leading the sheet metal fastening industry for over 45 years, providing products to more than 5,000 global customers from 32 business locations in 18 countries. TR’s ability to move with the times and adopting a fast track approach has firmly positioned the company as a market leader; an internationally respected manufacturer who is flexible enough to continually adapt its range and stay ahead of the competition.
This latest investment sees expansion of its own highly regarded Hank® Self Clinch Fasteners and the launch of a new range of K-Series® Thin Nuts. TR’s own facility in the UK can manufacture as small as M2 and as large as M36 which are used across a wide range of industry sectors.
There are many application challenges within the sheet metal industries and TR can offer fastener testing capabilities across mechanical, dimensional, installation, and plating and finishes. TR supplies sheet metal products for pressing, riveting or welding during manufacturing or assembly processes.
