Growth Bucks Trend
According to the latest NCB Purchasing Managers’ Index, Irish manufacturing activity contracted at its sharpest rate in two years during September. However, TR Southern Fasteners, leading global manufacturer and distributor of industrial fastenings, based in Mallow, Southern Ireland, is bucking this trend with the business reporting over 35% growth over the last two years.
Key to the company’s success is TR Southern Fasteners’ local customer care and service. As part of the TR Fastenings group, the company’s service is supported by extensive global resources and manufacturing operations in the UK and Asia. This combination allows TR Southern Fasteners to supply a vast range of fasteners and associated components to small, medium and large Irish manufacturers and engineering subcontractors while meeting each individual company’s needs.
Dara Horgan, branch manager, TR Southern Fasteners says: “What makes us unique in our marketplace is the strength of our workforce. Our business growth is due to the service, support and loyalty that we provide our customers. We pride ourselves on the relationships we build with them, offering customers individual solutions that fit their business needs. At TR Southern Fasteners our clients benefit from our engineering design capabilities locally in our Mallow facility as well as the support from own low cost manufacturing facilities in Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan and China. Tailoring vendor management solutions to meet our customers’ requirements, we are able to streamline their efficiency and productivity thus increasing our clients’ profitability.”
TR Southern Fasteners supplies fastenings to companies across Ireland from many different industries including: electronics, automotive, IT, home appliances, security, medical and general industry. Core products sold by the company include general fasteners (for instance, nuts, bolts, screws, washers) in steel, stainless steel and brass; and TR branded products including: self-clinch fasteners, screws and inserts for plastic, security fasteners and thread-locking nuts. Finally the company also prides itself in manufacturing studbolts to order on-site in its Mallow facility.
