EFC International, a global provider of specialty engineered fastener parts, announced its expanded focus on the worldwide distribution of genuine parts made by Research Engineering & Manufacturing, Inc. (REMINC) Authorized Licensees.
EFC’s team of application engineers support customers with advanced engineering assistance, direct factory relationships, rapid prototype solutions, as well as extensive value analysis and value engineering services.
“EFC, REMINC, and REMINC’s Licensees look forward to this partnership knowing that end-users will benefit from our combined strengths,” said Matt Dudenhoeffer, president and CEO of EFC.
REMINC’s Licensed products include best-in-class fastener brands, including the TAPTITE family of thread-forming screws. TAPTITE screws, which are primarily for metal applications, deliver increased performance and cost savings. They remove the costly labor, solvents, and time required for the thread-tapping process in manufacturing, as well as any external hex nuts, lock washers, and related hardware required for assembly.
Additionally, TAPTITE fasteners optimize metal-to-metal contact in assemblies, significantly improving their electrical grounding performance compared to conventional machine screws. This performance makes TAPTITE fasteners a top choice for electrical grounding applications in the global automotive and EV industries.
TAPTITE fasteners also partner exceptionally well with lightweight alloys, making them an ideal fastener selection for the energy-efficient vehicles of the future.
Steve Kirkpatrick, president of REMINC, shared: “Genuine quality parts with global availability are the backbone of REMINC’s business, and this mission dovetails perfectly with EFC’s commitment to the distribution of authentic, quality parts globally.”
REMINC, together with its sister company CONTI Fasteners AG, has a global Licensee network with over 100 manufacturing locations worldwide.
