A Safe, Robust and Resilient Infrastructure: The Backbone to a Nation’s Economy 

For more than four decades, Nord-Lock Group’s bolting technologies have supported a range of industries – from construction to manufacturing, transportation to oil & gas, and more – in every corner of the world towards safer, more reliable operations and applications. “At Nord-Lock Group, our mission is to safeguard human lives and customer investments. Behind some of the world’s most advanced buildings, constructions and applications, are the safe bolted connections that hold them together – critical but usually go unnoticed. In Malaysia, some of the most recognisable buildings, infrastructures and industries are secured by our solutions; the bolting components of an awe-inspiring skyscraper may seem negligible, but they are the critical elements that enable us to build connections that last,” added Kang.
