TR showcases growing distribution network 21 February 2019

TR Fastenings will be exhibiting its complete range of products at Fastener Fair Stuttgart, and in addition, its sales and technical teams will be on hand to discuss the company’s complete support service to customers, as well as its rapidly growing distribution programme in Europe.

TR Fastenings will be exhibiting its full range of industrial fasteners, including its own branded fasteners for sheet metal, enclosure hardware, fasteners for plastic, security fasteners, and plastic hardware, as well as special fasteners designed and manufactured to customer drawings. The EPW screw will also be on display at the show, with TR engineers on hand to talk through its applications and benefits.

TR will also focus on its prestigious and continuously expanding distributor network, which provides it with enhanced logistics capabilities throughout Europe, with new partners being added on an ongoing basis. This network means TR can distribute products out to the market quickly, shipping rapidly from the UK to a growing number of European Master Distributor locations.

The positive and collaborative relationship TR has with all of its Master Distributors is something it is extremely proud of. “Distributors now account for a significant share of TR’s total global business and we recognise the hugely important role they play in allowing our product to reach locations and markets that would not be possible without their support, commitment and loyalty. Fastener Fair Stuttgart is one of the highlights of the year for the fastener industry and is a great opportunity for us to meet with current partners, distributors and end-users, as well as build new relationships and discussing the merits of our combined expertise in manufacture, engineering and distribution,” comments Adam John, European distribution sales manager.

TR engineers, manufactures and distributes industrial fasteners to OEMs and tier 1 suppliers in sectors ranging from automotive, electronics and domestic appliances, supplying more than 60 billion components annually to over 5,000 companies across 60 countries.

Manufacturing and engineering plays a central role in TR’s global operations and the firm’s 31 worldwide sites include eight manufacturing plants – equipped with the latest technologies and facilities to cater for every customer’s needs. The continued investment in equipment, resources and skills in these facilities enables the development of innovative fastening solutions, such as the newly launched TR patented EPW screw, a self-extruding thread forming screw designed for use in thin sheet metal. TR also supports emerging sectors such as Electric Vehicle (EV) charging, with its combination of fastener product ranges and industry knowledge and expertise.
