Sherex tabs G.L. Huyett as Master Distributor

Sherex’s full line of standard rivet nuts, wedge locking washers and tooling and installation systems are available now with fast shipping on G.L. Huyett’s website.

With a 100-plus year history, great customer service, fast shipping, and low line minimums, G.L. Huyett was an ideal choice as master distributor for Sherex in the Midwest United States.

“G.L. Huyett added the Disc-Lock wedge-locking washer product line to their portfolio in 2018 and we’ve been so impressed with their support to the market that we decided to expand the relationship to include the full line of Sherex rivet nuts and hand tools,” said Adam Pratt, president, Sherex Fastening Solutions. “They understand our product, have outstanding customer service, and are very reliable in terms of shipping and having product readily available.”

G.L. Huyett will help support Sherex with safety stock and small quantity orders, along with technical and engineering support. It’s a win-win situation.

“We have shared significant resources so that our sales and engineering teams can not only support the market with safety stock and small quantity fulfillment, but also in design-in and business development actions with our OEM fastener distributor customers,” said Tim O’Keeffe, CEO, G.L. Huyett, in a 2019 press release.  “We will be a great team out there.”

“Spaenaur has been a great distributor for us throughout Canada and to see this relationship grow is exciting,” said Adam Pratt, president, Sherex Fastening Solutions.

The addition of TEC Series completes the portfolio of wedge locking washers that eliminate vibrational loosening.  TEC Series are designed for applications requiring future application disassembly,  while Disc-Lock washers are preferred for fastened joints that do not require future disassembly.

“We are delighted to now represent TEC Series in Canada,” says Product Management Director John Sweeny. “Our customers expect ‘fasteners right now.’ That we can now meet our customers’ urgent needs with a high-quality product at a more attractive price point is the icing on the cake. TEC Series wedge locking washers do that for us. Our partnership with Sherex not only expands our product portfolio, but also adds to the decades of success Spaenaur has already experienced with Disc-Lock.”

Wedge locking washers are used by a variety of different industries and manufacturers, but are also becoming more common around the house for general repair. With TEC Series and Disc-Lock wedge locking washers, you can tighten it, and forget it.
