Berardi Fasteners has issued its new catalogue of extracomponents, displaying an impressive range of 112 product families and over 25,000 items, most of which are stock ready and used in a variety of industrial fields – from precision mechanics, to agri-machinery, electronics, and industrial automation.
Berardi Fasteners explains: “About ten years ago, we started to realise that our customers might need to cut their supplier management costs. We understood that it would be crucial for them to source different products from a single partner. Therefore, we decided to invest in the extracomponents range, by which we define everything outside of Berardi’s core business, which is bolts and steel fasteners.”
Berardi started this process with one important category – springs. “In 2011, we started a fruitful collaboration with US-based Lee Spring, a supplier of standard and custom springs for the most demanding applications. We were able to add springs from specialised materials and custom surface treatments, to our range of around 24,000 stock ready items. From springs, we kept expanding the range out of our passion and willingness to satisfy the day-to-day needs of our customers.”
Today Berardi’s extracomponents range includes fittings, lifting equipment, vibration dampers, sealings, cable glands, spacers, and operating elements, among many other products. “The new products in stock are vital in making our Kanban and Kanban Up logistics services even more efficient,” points out Berardi. “Through extracomponents we are now able to meet our customers’ demands and consequently we have seen business grow. Our plan is to keep growing and develop even better partnerships with our customers.”
