Nord-Lock® wedge-locking washers have always been an exceptional choice for manufacturers when looking for the safest, most reliable bolt-securing solution. And to ensure that the washers get to those who need them, Nord-Lock has always put a lot of effort into maintaining and streamlining productive, reciprocal collaborations with its partners and distributors. During the Fastenal’s 2023 Supplier Award, that strive was recognized by honoring the North American team with the prestigious “Supplier of the Year” award.
Based on a thorough scorecard evaluating 25 different metrics, such as order acknowledgment, labeling, and a range of others, Nord-Lock came out on top in a category consisting of 97 suppliers. So, in addition to their superior washers, the award serves to recognize Nord-Lock's simultaneous market-leading position for providing smooth, customer-oriented supply and customer services. A more detailed look at 2023 shows that the Nord-Lock team outperformed the competition in ten of twelve months.
"When you pair a superior product with an incredible team, amazing things happen," says Shea Usher, Head of Sales North America. “So proud of my team and their accomplishment of being named 2023’s best-in-class supplier at Fastenal’s Supplier Awards".
The award marks a remarkable milestone in the over 20-year-long partnership between Nord-Lock and Fastenal. With the award, Nord-Lock’s North America division heads into 2024 with an energizing tailwind, inspired to improve on its already market-leading position in everything supply-related while continuing to offer the world’s safest bolting solutions.
The Nord-Lock Group believes that no one should have to question the integrity of the mechanical systems that play such a critical role in our way of life. As a global leader in bolting solutions, we strengthen public and industrial infrastructures with high-quality, safe and innovative solutions that will change the face of modern living for decades to come.
