U2 FASTENERS made the decision at their inception to go into a niche market built on quality with special products like stainless steel screws and other unusual products. There is an intentional strategy to ensure consistency. The company is always looking for ways to be more efficient and to deliver high-quality products at the lowest possible costs. They are very quality oriented, and because of that, they have been able to break into the US market with four of the largest outlet stores. “This award means a lot to all of us at U2 FASTENERS and we are honoured to accept it. With a strong focus on our customers, we aim to create, promote and distribute a new generation of innovative, code-compliant, premium fasteners that will be used by professional builders, simply because they are the best.” ~ Uli Walther, U2 FASTENERS
