above and beyond
Let us put more than 40 years of experience to work for you.

From basic hand tools and abrasives through to specialty tooling and advanced fastening
systems, we have one of the largest product offerings in Canada.
Our assembly tools feature a broad selection of clutch and motor options, covering a wide range of torques at varying speeds. Coupled with a diversity of attachments and throttles, these tools are suitable for an infinite number of applications. Our commitment to quality means that our tools have no torque reaction to the operator, and provide full traceability of torque values.
Rivets & Tooling
A vast array of in-stock rivets and many other types of blind fasteners provide limitless combinations and possibilities for any and all of your unique fastening demands. To discover the optimum answer for your business’ needs, we take into account the material alloy and thickness, hole size, and item application, and then consider head styles, body types, and shear and tensile strengths to determine and recommend the right rivet and tooling for the job.
In theory, a fastener is a device used for attaching one thing to another – but trust us, there’s a lot more to it than that. Correct fastening means consistent clamp and a stronger joint. You can count on us to deliver superior fastening expertise, complete with documented shear and tensile strengths, for an unmatched, vibration-resistant fastening solution that is safe, efficient, and cost-effective.
Aerospace Fasteners & Tools
Different materials and different applications combined with stringent specifications all require definition of particular fasteners and tools. With our diverse range of advanced drilling tools, cutters, and installation tooling, we can accommodate your specifications for material variation, hole quality, access points, production rate, fixturing, and other vital factors.
Cutting Tools & Material Finishing
Almost every manufactured product requires cutting, grinding, blending, sanding, finishing, or cleaning at some stage of the production process. A correct tool with the right abrasive will optimize operator safety, improve process efficiencies, and maximize the service life of the abrasive. We match the proper tool to the appropriate abrasive, to ensure that production costs are managed and budgets met while safety is always maintained.
Industrial Health & Safety
Good employees deserve to be well cared for – their appreciation will show in higher productivity and increased morale. Industrial health and safety is imperative in every workplace, and that includes everything from occupational skin care, to anti-fatigue matting and clean floors. We consider your employees in every solution we present, and can ensure that your staff are protected by the utmost in safety standards.
