Standing Out In a Crowded Field

As a distributor, your goal is to fulfill the obligations of your customers at a competitive price, for a profit in a way that ensures sustainable success. With the vast number of hardware distributors and importers in the market today, the challenge becomes distinguishing yourself to remain viable.

The Benefits of Working with the Right Brand Partner

Distributors today are under constant pressure to reduce the
hard costs of ‘C’ Class components such as rivets. The challenge,
however, is that there is only so much room to lower
costs without sacrificing quality and safety in the supply chain.

Options such as cutting margins or increasing prices may be
effective in the short term, but these strategies can be uncertain

As a supplier to your customers, you can add value by...

by Steven Sherman, VP of Engineering

Engineers and production staff generally work from the premise that if a rivet fits a hole, it should create a secure trouble-free joint when applied. This is true in some respects as rivets do have a greater hole-fill ability compared to other types of fasteners.

Based on the way rivets are specified and used today, the primary challenges these professionals face include....

The Art & Science of Mandrel Production
by Steven Sherman, VP of Engineering

Blind rivets have been produced since the mid 1900’s, and although many blind riveting technologies have evolved since – one constant has remained: the mandrel.

Used in common blind rivet assemblies, the mandrel is a key component, and often the most critical, in the proper functioning of a blind rivet. It provides the rivet body retention and gives it the renowned “pop” or “click” sound when it breaks. To date, the mandrel in a blind rivet assembly is still the best method to provide secondary expansion in a blind rivet application....
