TR Fastenings stands out from the crowd at Fastener Fair Stuttgart 2019

TR Fastenings (TR), the global specialist in the design, engineering, manufacture and distribution of industrial fasteners, exhibited its complete range of products and celebrated the success of its rapidly growing European distributor network at Fastener Fair Stuttgart in March 2019. 
TR’s prominent stand position at the 3 day show ensured the team benefitted directly from the considerable footfall through the event, which attracted 900 exhibitors from over 40 countries. The team welcomed and met with a high number of existing Master Distributors, end-user customers, distributor partners and suppliers as well as some interesting new prospects. Representatives from a number of large scale OEMs and end-user businesses visited the stand, including key contacts from the automotive and electronics sectors, both significant markets for TR. 
In addition to the complete branded product portfolio, the TR stand also featured the brand new sheet metal fasteners brochures, the self-clinch and plastic fasteners ranges and the newly launched EPW screw for thin sheet metal. To add to the team’s success, the EPW screw was also awarded a special award for innovation at the show, recognising its significant cost and time-saving benefits for customers.
The majority of TR’s European Master Distributors attended the show and on the Wednesday evening, TR hosted a special dinner at a nearby exclusive restaurant to say thank you to the Master Distributors and celebrate their collaborative success. The dinner was attended by over 50 distributor guests and several TR representatives.
Adam John, European Distribution Sales Manager at TR Fastenings, comments:
“Our 35 European Master Distributors from across 31 countries continue to play a significantly increasing role in our global growth success as a business and it was a pleasure to welcome them to our stand and show our appreciation for their work at our mid-show dinner. The tradeshow was very well attended and our stand was always busy, which is testament to the hard work of our teams both behind the scenes and during the event and the quality of the products and literature we had on display.”

TR Fastenings (TR), the global specialist in the design, engineering, manufacture and distribution of industrial fasteners, will be exhibiting its complete range of products at Fastener Fair Stuttgart in March 2019.

FF Stuttgart is one of the standout events in the global fastener and fixing calendar and will play host to over 900 exhibitors from 40 countries in 2019.

Rapidly growing distributor network

TR’s prestigious and continuously expanding distributor network means it has enhanced logistics capabilities throughout Europe, with new partners being added on an ongoing basis. This network means TR can distribute products out to 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 TR is extremely proud of. Adam John, European Distribution Sales Manager, comments: “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 building new relationships and discussing the merits of our combined expertise in manufacture, engineering and distribution.”

Experts in manufacturing and engineering

TR engineers, manufactures and distributes industrial fasteners to over 5000 customers in 60 countries worldwide in sectors ranging from automotive, electronics and domestic appliances.

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.
