To satisfy this list of requirements, engineers must carefully consider the raw material of each quality part utilized. Fasteners for trucks and trailers are often made from steel, but electric or hydrogen powered tractors, alongside others powered by alternative fuels, may demand more engineered fasteners made of aluminum to prioritize lightweighting.
Maintaining a Streamlined Supply of Quality Parts for your Truck & Trailer Builds
While manufacturing truck and trailers with quality parts is key, purchasing and supply chain professionals must maintain a streamlined supply chain to get these parts to a production line.
Onshoring and nearshoring production, as evidenced by the number of manufacturers opening new plants nearer their customer base, continues to grow. It also lowers their carbon footprint, as these fasteners require minimal transportation.
With fastener distribution centers all over the globe and cold-form manufacturing facilities in the Us and UK and later this year in Mexico, Optimas has partnered with manufacturers for over 100 years, helping them meet demand by sourcing and making quality parts closer to home.
Alongside our offering of both standard and engineered fastening solutions, our OptiTech VMI solutions ensure customers replenish their inventory on time and have real-time visibility into on-hand and up-stream availability—with secure, cloud-based technology.
