Quality Assured

The Organisation constantly strives to ensure that the products sourced are of the highest quality and that they are produced 100% compliant with International Standards, where applicable.

All products are stringently checked through Goods-In upon arrival. The goods are boxed in clearly marked packaging with Relevant Standards, Description, Grade, Lot and Heat Numbers. They are also batched so that contents can easily be identified and traced back to source.

As a result the Company is able to provide Batch Traceability, Certificates of Conformity and Material Certification for the products on request, such that customers can be assured of receiving products fully fit for purpose.

Apex Stainless Fasteners' Manufacturing Division sources good quality raw materials of European origin, with full mechanical and chemical certification. Much is crack detected at source and certified accordingly.
