Providing optimal safety 31 January 2020

As one of Europe’s leading wholesalers of stainless steel fasteners, with almost 30 years’ experience, Apex Stainless has established a worldwide reputation for excellent customer service – a principle that is deeply embedded at the very heart of the company and permeates through every level of the business.

Apex aims to offer its fastener distribution customers a ‘one stop shop’ for all stainless steel fastener and fixing requirements and constantly strives to offer the very best possible customer service – building upon its already extensive and comprehensive product portfolio of over 20,000 product lines.

Given the ever more rigorous requirements as regards to quality and strength of products capable of coping with the harshest of conditions and environments, the company has focused attention on the range of fasteners offered by BUMAX® as a solution. This product range is one of the strongest stainless steel fasteners in the world and has a proven track record of providing optimal safety and reliability in the most demanding of applications.

Existing A4 stock ranges are therefore currently being supplemented by BUMAX® 88 socket cap screws and socket countersunk screws. These screws are manufactured from 316L (A4) low carbon material and conform to a minimum tensile strength of 800N/mm2 combined with a yield factor of 640N/mm2. These parts will shortly be available from the shelf to ensure prompt delivery and fulfilment of any customer requirement, including next day delivery to UK customers.

Further product groups from the BUMAX range, including BUMAX 88 hexagon full nuts, flat washers, hexagon head screws (full and part thread), as well as 316L Class 100 tensile products (BUMAX 109), will also ultimately be stocked in the UK, although currently access to the BUMAX inventory in Sweden should facilitate prompt deliveries. Even greater strength products are available, including bespoke fasteners to drawing.
