Your Fastening and Components Resource
The experienced Martin team using data driven analytics works with suppliers, manufacturers, and you to identify, engineer, source, and stock the right OEM fastening solution for your application. All of this leads to reduced downtime, minimized supply chain risks, lower carrying costs and improved quality providing peace of mind about parts and processes.
Let your engineers focus on what they do best. Our experts work from your drawings and requirements to:
- Ensure the proper materials, coating and durability.
- Decrease quality issues by establishing PPAP and FMEA processes.
- Lower assembly cost with process improvements, VMI programs and pre-packaging components.
- Analyze problem areas in production, including product teardowns, to identify if a design change is needed or if the failed component did not meet initial specs.
- Consolidate products to reduce cost, risk and increase fill rate.
- Review the assembly tool to ensure compatibility with the right fastener and training your team on the alignment and ergonomics.

Martin offers training on the basics of fasteners and how to properly use them, including:
- Basic Fastener Overview
- Materials, Grades, and Strengths
- Manufacturing Overview
Capturing the right information is almost as important as producing the right part. Customized reporting is included in every fastening solution, using advanced analytical reporting tools to provide insights into usage, fill rates, lead times and batch size to drive better decision-making in your production process. Our custom portal provides this data daily, weekly and/or monthly so your team has the right information at the right time to meet competitive demands.
ISO 9001 Certification
At Martin, quality is defined as “conformance to your requirements”. We are ISO 9001 certified and our commitment to process ensures that quality is at the forefront of everything we do. We perform a first-piece inspection of part-to-print in our lab on every part that comes through our Distribution Center. We compare that part-to-print, test it in our lab, and if it does not meet our high standards then we send the product back.
