TR Southern Fasteners Joins British & Irish Association of Fastener Distributors
TR Southern Fasteners is delighted to announce that it has become a member of the British & Irish Association of Fastener Distributors (BIAFD), a highly-respected trade organisation which represents its members on issues directly related to the fastener industry, including raw material and supply chain trends, legislation and regulation, and product development.
Last year, several leading Irish fastener distributors approached the organisation, interested in membership. Following an overwhelming vote of support by BAFD members, the association now not only welcomes distributors from Ireland but has also reflected the extension in a name change to the British & Irish Association of Fastener Distributors.
TR Southern Fasteners was amongst the first companies to decide that it would be hugely beneficial to join, both to the company itself and to its customers.
Dara Horgan, General Manager, of TR Southern Fasteners, comments: “Our decision to join the BIAFD forms part of our ongoing strategy to provide the highest standard of service as one of Ireland’s leading fastener manufacturers and distributors, whilst also reflecting our commitment to the fastener industry.”
Global Reach, Local Presence
As part of the TR Fastenings group, TR Southern Fasteners is supported by extensive global resources and manufacturing operations in the UK and Asia. This combination allows TR’s Irish locations 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. Customers come from many different industries, including electronics, automotive, IT, home appliances, security, medical, agricultural farm machinery 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 stud bolts to order on-site in its Mallow facility.
