Sheet Metal Products: design, engineering & quality expertise.

TR has a wealth of knowledge and expertise that enables us to proactively or reactively respond to our customers’ technical requests. Whether it is application advice, installation queries or material/plating information, the TR team is here to help.

Our fastener testing capabilities can be summarised into four categories:
  • Mechanical
  • Dimensional
  • Installation
  • Plating and finishes
TR adopts a full service provider ethos, supporting designers and engineers to ensure the finished part is as specified for the application. TR’s team of global specialists are based in 33 locations, which include 3 Technical and Innovation Centres. Utilising our extensive network of expertise, we will work with you from design through to manufacture and will be on hand to guide and advise where required.


Our aim is to provide a level of product quality that prevents the production of non-conforming fasteners, with the objective of approaching zero defects for specified characteristics.

Customer specific quality standards can also be provided as required. The means of achieving these higher quality standards include: electronic PPAP, supplier development, and strategic sourcing, as well as camera, laser and roller sorting.
