From automated bin stocking solutions to custom-manufactured made-to-print fasteners to kitting and assembly services, RC Fasteners has value add services for you.

Bin Stocking Services: VMI, Consignment Inventory, & Custom Kitting

Our Bin Stocking Services are designed to save you time, reduce procurement costs, and secure excellent quality control on the line. These services are tailored specifically to meet the customer's needs by our inventory management experts, who will visit your plant regularly to audit your stock supply and become a seamless extension of your business. Our custom-tailored plan will show the options we offer, and you can decide what will work best for you. The best part about this program is that we monitor all inventory, purchasing, replenishment, and quality control, so you don't have to!

Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI)

Our Vendor Managed Inventory service uses technology to automate the reordering process, saving you time, reducing costs, and increasing order accuracy. Using a software system called "The Business Edge," we implement a barcode scanning system that makes reordering a breeze. If you're nervous about the technical piece, don't worry: it's designed to be used by non-technical people, so it's simple to implement. Here's how the system works:
  • Bin barcode labels are generated for each VMI customer, containing information like bin location, part numbers, and minimum-maximum stock levels.
  • Bluetooth scanners are used to access product information instantly by scanning the bin barcode labels into The Business Edge iOS app.
  • These scanners allow orders to be uploaded from anywhere with cell coverage or WiFi access. If you don't have WiFi or cell access, the scanner can store orders for later PC upload and detailed review before transmission.
  • Confirmation emails are sent automatically upon order submission.

Consignment Inventory

Another great service we offer is consignment inventory. Here's how it works: You have parts you use all the time. We bring you a designated amount of those parts and put them in your warehouse. We set up a program allowing you to use the parts only when needed. The best part? You don't pay for them until you use them. Plus, you always have safety stock sitting right there in your warehouse!  Then, we have one of our professionals stop by weekly (or more if needed), take inventory, and replenish as needed. Great system!

Re-Work Services: Grinding, Chamfering, Made-To-Print Fasteners, & More

​Looking for custom fasteners or custom work done to your existing fasteners and components? We've got you covered. Here's just a few of the re-work services we offer with super quick turnaround times.
  • Cut-off: We can cut fasteners to any custom length you need with our cut-off services.
  • Chamfer: Chamfering allows us to create an angled edge on the end of your fasteners.
  • Captivation: We can design fasteners for a permanent hold.
  • Custom To-Print Fasteners: With our custom manufacturing capabilities, we can create custom fasteners from your drawings and specifications, including bolts, anchors, metric fasteners, and more.
  • Grinding: Our grinding process can smooth and shape a fastener to your desired dimension.
  • Pre-Applied Loctite, Nylon Patch, Pellet, or Strip: We can apply threadlocker or thread sealant to your fasteners to prevent loosening.
  • Plating and Anodizing: Our plating and anodizing processes add a protective layer to your fasteners that help shield against corrosion.

Stock and Release

​This service allows us to stock the inventory items you use all the time with a blanket purchase order, letter of intent, or contract. We would stock your parts for a period of 1 year and release them to you on an as-needed basis. This service is ideal as it gives you the large quantity pricing, released to you in small quantities as needed. This ensures we always have it on the shelf. Best of all, you only pay for it as you use it and not all upfront.

Valued Engineering

Valued engineering can be defined as an organized effort directed at analyzing designed building features, systems, equipment, and material selections for the purpose of achieving essential functions at the lowest cost consistent with required performance, quality, reliability, and safety.
