Come and see us on stand C160 (Hall 4) and find out more about the benefits of being a master distributor

As a global leader in the design, manufacture and supply of superior quality industrial components, TR Fastenings is able to offer an extensive range of products to European fastener distributors, which it will be showcasing at Fastener Fair Stuttgart in March 2015. From its own market-leading range of branded components to the Euro rivet bush and K Series nut, as well as brass inserts and one of the most extensive ranges of plastic fasteners, TR Fastenings supplies over 1.4 billion self clinch fasteners per annum to high-profile companies across a wide range of industry sectors. TR has Europe’s fastest growing distributor network which now encompasses 31 Master Distributors located in 30 European countries, all of which are fully supported by TR’s unique and highly focused, distribution sales and marketing programme.

Moreover, Trifast plc, the parent company of TR Fastenings, has recently further consolidated its presence in Europe with the acquisition of Viterie Italia Centrale Srl (VIC), a leading Italian manufacturer and distributor of fastening systems. The acquisition will form a key additional part of Trifast's future expansion by providing an additional manufacturing facility in Europe to complement the extensive network of TR manufacturing sites in the UK, Singapore, China, Taiwan and Malaysia, ensuring that it can operate locally but with the resources of an international player in the fastener industry.

Expanding Sheet Metal Range to Keep at Cutting Edge

TR Fastenings continues to strengthen its position as one of Europe’s leading suppliers in the sheet metal sector with the introduction of a NEW range - high-strength studs for thin sheets. In new materials: hardened stainless steel standard flush head studs are now available in two new sizes, M2.5 & M8. Across the range sizes are ex-stock in diameters from M2-M10 and lengths from 5mm-50mm. These new products form part of TR Fastenings’ extensive portfolio of sheet metal products, including the genuine Hank rivet bush, blind rivets, blind rivet nuts, K-nuts, cage nuts, weld studs & nuts, swage nuts and the Euro rivet bush.

The vast majority of TR’s stud and nut range is produced by the company’s manufacturing plant in Singapore , and the  newly available sizes of self-clinch studs have been introduced in response to customer demand and are not readily available from many other UK or European suppliers. Used widely by sheet metal subcontractors for a variety of applications,  including medical equipment, marine, automotive, white goods, telecommunications, electronics and general engineering, the studs are available in a number of types, materials & finishes.

The Power of Plastic

Since TR Fastenings introduced its first plastic fasteners in 2012, the range has expanded greatly and is now one of the most extensive available to European distributors, with new products being added all of the time. From PCB hardware and cable management to cable ties and nylon fasteners, as well as the recently-introduced plastic-coated aluminium self-adhesive clips and products for polyurethane bumpers, companies across many industries are now converting to plastic for the weight benefits it gives. Furthermore, not only can one plastic fastener be used for a variety of purposes, but they have other qualities, including ease of use, strength at low and high temperature, resistance to impact, abrasion, organic solvents and gasoline, retention of shape and stiffness at high temperature. Also, importantly, TR’s plastic range meets with the necessary industry standards and sizes, all products satisfy the RoHS compliance legislation, are ISO 14001/2004 compliant and are available in flame-retardant versions.
