Optimas Solutions launches Standard Fastener program

Optimas Solutions has launched a Standard Fastener program that offers on-demand access to common screws, washers, and nuts for maintenance, repair, and production applications.

Optimas SolutionsThe service is part of its Manufacturing Solutions strategy and will better meet the existing and future requirements of its customers.

The program is designed to provide availability and consistency for typical usage parts, plus more security from running out of stock or when lead times threaten production. Available online at, the Standard Fastener program offers a focused selection of 224 common fasteners (screws, washers and nuts), and targets one business day to ship approved orders available from Optimas’ centrally located distribution centers in St. Louis, Missouri, and Monterrey, Mexico. The St. Louis facility was recently opened and is the distribution hub for all manufacturing consumables.

“The Standard Fastener program applies directly to building an agile supply chain based on the 80/20 rule,” said Marc Strandquist, president of the Americas for Optimas Solutions. “The vast majority of our customers rely on a core group of fasteners. Roughly 20 percent of those items comprise 80 percent of their spend. We are focused on delivering those items quickly and competitively so they can concentrate on managing demand. This is another aspect of our Manufacturing Solutions strategy which we have designed as an agile, flexible supply chain that gives our customer what they value most.”
