Global Sourcing

The Fastener Network philosophy for purchasing is very simple. If we buy quality, then we sell quality. With many years of experience in sourcing, importing, stocking and distributing, we can meet the most exacting demands for quality, price and delivery.

Every business depends on a competitive cost base, and the need to utilise low cost sources from outside the UK has increased over the years. Any supplier to the Fastener Network must meet the following criteria:

  1. Committed to quality and are approved to ISO9001:2008 as a minimum

  2. Meet our performance criteria for on time delivery

  3. Competitive within the market place

Sourcing policy adapted to customers’ industry / individual requirements.

Each market sector has it’s own quality requirements, so selection is critical. Not every Customer will require the exacting standards and documentation that our automotive Customers demand, and that is reflected in the supplier and the cost.

Fastener Network – China Office

We have now opened an office in China where our sourcing engineers work with and audit our current approved suppliers, as well as assess potential new suppliers for many other products that are outside our current product range, something used more and more by our Customers.

Their need to reduce the supplier base and gain the advantages of our supply systems has lead us into supplying much more than standard fasteners, such as:

Turned parts

Cold formed specials


Plastic parts

And many more
