TR Fastenings, a Trifast Group Company, is once again exhibiting at the NEAA Expo held at the Beacon of Light in Sunderland. We continue to enjoy and benefit from a long-standing relationship with the NEAA, which now spans 7 years. Their platforms have been instrumental in opening doors and introducing TR to key Tier 1’s around the globe. Our membership has created valuable opportunities for us such as generating business in the North East and also via trade missions to Japan and Mexico.
TR’s location in Newton Aycliffe, which has been established for over 27 years, is in a prime location to service this region. Initially TR was the supplier of choice for Black and Decker and Electrolux managing their high-volume production providing a DLF system with product lineside. Both companies however relocated to Eastern Europe and TR regrouped and focussed on the growing opportunities that Nissan created. The skills learned in high volume supply of quality product, coupled with a lean build approach to the supply chain ensured that TR met the criteria required by the Tier 1’s supporting Nissan.
