Prompt and Accurate Delivery

We understand that a superior service response is critical in today’s business environment. Our aim is to offer customers across Australia and New Zealand the most professional fastener supply service possible. Fasteners often comprise only a small but important component of our customers’ requirements, so we strive to keep the process of order and supply as simple as possible. For your convenience orders can be placed via our online store, phone, fax, online, email, mail or in person. A far-reaching branch network and daily multi-delivery agreement with our logistics suppliers gives us the ability to meet a range of stringent supply requirement.

Quality Customer Service

Our team believes in a traditional one-to-one approach to customer service, and our experts are available to answer any of your queries either online, by calling us on 1300 KONNECT (AU) 0508 KONNECT (NZ) or by visiting one of our 40+ branches across Australia & New Zealand.
Not only does Konnect Fastening Systems® boast decades of experience in the fastener industry, but our trained technicians are likely to be able to solve any unique problem in a fraction of the time that would otherwise be necessary. If we combine this trait with an ability to work together with our customers to determine the exact design and materials that are necessary, levels of safety and reliability are a certainty.

Technical Assistance

There is much more to fasteners than just simple nuts and bolts; the suitability of a fastener is highly dependent on its application.
The selection process must establish the strength required (material grade), corrosion factors (protective coatings), head type and thread form fit. That’s why it is important to use a specialist such as Konnect Fastening Systems®. Our extensive industry experience enables us to provide support for all types of fasteners for a wide range of applications. Access to information and our ability to source many different materials and coatings means you be assured that you are receiving comprehensive support made possible by our experience and long-standing supply partnerships.

Specially Manufactured Products

Our extensive range is complemented by our ability to access special and custom fasteners and equipment through relationships with a diverse range of fastener and industrial supply manufacturers.

Konnect Fastening Systems® has an expansive network throughout Australia and New Zealand with branches in all states and territories and 5 Distribution Centres to support the Australian branch network. With an immense breadth and depth of product as well as ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management Systems certification for all Australian Distribution Centres, Konnect Fastening Systems® stands out as one of the premier fasteners and tool specialists.
