Continuous improvement is a group effort at General Fasteners Company. We live and breathe it every day, in every department, to ensure that you get the best value available for your components.

Value Engineering

General Fastener’s engineers support total assembly cost reduction efforts through line-side efficiency improvements and in-plant assembly evaluations. These improvements encompass everything from part consolidation efforts that help reduce the total number of components needed to build your products, to introducing the newest fastening technologies for your products, to complete product teardowns at your facility or ours. By working together at improving design and manufacturing processes, our engineering staff becomes an integral part of your continuous improvement journey. Request an engineering consultation today to see how partnering with General Fasteners Company will result in the lowest total in-place cost for all your Fasteners and Assembly Components.

Program Review

Inventory Management programs are most effective when they mirror the needs of your ever-changing production demands. Through the use of BinTrac technology and other proprietary software, General Fasteners is able to constantly monitor, evaluate, and make changes to our programs, letting you concentrate on what’s most important; manufacturing world-class products.

We share information with you on a quarterly basis through our Customer Performance Review (CPR) process, and more frequently per your request – transparency of information is paramount to our joint success. This quarterly review process allows us to collaboratively work toward improvements in the program, while keeping you up to date on everything in your production environment. Let us show you why working with General Fasteners Company is the right choice for all your production component needs.
