Aerospace and Defence

As a leading distributor in the Aerospace and Defence industry, our customers have come to depend on us as a proven source, known for exceptional quality and delivery, for all their fasteners and related components.



Vendor Matrix

TR operates a unique vendor matrix for all Aerospace and Defence customers.

Vendors who are approved onto the matrix have been assessed and passed a suitability study to meet the industry requirements. TR’s systems will not allow any parts to be ordered with vendors who are not on this matrix for supply into the Aerospace and Defence sector.


Vendor Managed Inventory »

Getting high-volume, low-cost components from the supplier to the production line often involves significant administration.

This can add considerably to the total in-place cost of the parts. Our logistical supply systems can practically eliminate these administration processes and reduce the customers overall costs.
