    Cold Headed Pin Manufacturer – Custom – Made in the USA

    Since 1970, Fastco Industries has been a leading cold headed pin manufacturer for the global industrial marketplace. With cutting-edge innovation, Fastco is IATF 16949:2016 certified, which shows our high-quality commitment. Because we have over 50 years of experience, we are cold forming experts. We specialize in high-volume production. Since we manufacture 80% of our tooling in-house, we can turn around prototypes and samples rapidly. All Fastco cold headed pins and other fasteners are proudly “made in the USA” in our manufacturing facilities.

    As a manufacturer, Fastco’s production capabilities include heading, single-die design, and multiple-die design. In addition, Fastco designs and fabricates its own custom cold heading tooling including multiple upset configurations, custom head shapes, and substitutions for multi-part assemblies.

    Because of our thread rolling capabilities, we can also add knurls or fetters to pins. Our state-of-the-art inspection equipment, including a new 6-axis table sorting robot, ensures that the parts you receive are top quality.

    From automotive to industrial and construction, we supply pins to a wide variety of industries. With their expertise, our engineers can partner with our customers on any design adjustments needed. Finally, our superior customer service will guide you through the process of quoting, ordering, and receiving your parts.
