Zoro celebrates 7 million fasteners sold 17 October 2019

Zoro UK, supplier of fasteners, fixings, tools and equipment for industry, is celebrating the sale of its 7 millionth fastener since it commenced sales in December 2017.

Zoro supplies fasteners to the aerospace, automotive, marine, power, construction, science and rail industries. Fasteners are essential to each of these industries, and their reliability is essential to their sector.

“We value being a reliable part of a supply chain, supplying fasteners to UK industry. Our next day delivery and quality named brands ensure we help to keep the manufacturing production chain moving without unnecessary downtime,” comments Chris Matenaers, marketing director at Zoro UK.

“There are so many varieties of fastener as they are different shapes, have different tips and heads, are made up of different materials and have different properties. For example, screws in the marine industry must be able to withstand salt water corrosion, and so would be different to those needed in the aerospace industry,” explains Chris.

Zoro is a one stop shop for more than 250,000 industrial consumables, tools and business supplies with free next day delivery throughout the UK on many of its lines, and currently has almost 50,000 different types of fasteners on its website.

“We are excited to be celebrating the sale of our 7 millionth fastener. After introducing our new order subscription service, we are expecting to sell over 8 million fasteners this year,” concludes Chris.

The addition of the new order subscription service will be a boon for customers as it will cut down time spent reordering, reduce human error and ensure smooth production.
