The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic created a surge in global demand for medical equipment, which resulted in a massive demand for sheet metal fasteners. This has affected manufacturers that produce essential equipment, including ventilators.
International specialist, TR Fastenings, has focused on being as responsive as possible to meet this demand. The company is now further investing in its sheet metal range to accelerate growth of this product portfolio.
TR has been at the forefront of the sheet metal fastening industry for more than 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 an internationally respected manufacturer that’s flexible enough to continually adapt its range of products.
This latest investment means an expansion of TR’s brand of Hank Self Clinch Fasteners and the launch of a new range of K-Series Thin Nuts. TR can manufacture as small as M2 and as large as M36, which are used across a wide range of industry sectors.
The manufacturer also offers a reliable business model for large OEM’s and SME’s and competitive advantage is achieved through flexible pricing, volumes, and short lead times — with the capability to source raw materials locally, allowing faster production times to meet demand.
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.
