In 1978 the largest manufacturer of industrial fasteners in the Southern hemisphere was National Bolt, based in Boksburg, South Africa.

At this time, National Bolt was unable to produce socket screws in Grade 12.9 material. As a result of this, the 7 exclusive distributors of National Bolts formed a company called National Socket Screws, to import and distribute socket screws in South Africa.

During this time, National Socket Screws began importing the socket screw range from Japan who was a low-cost producer of fasteners. Soon production of fasteners migrated to Taiwan.

During the early 1980’s stainless steel became popular in the industrial and construction sectors as a result of its corrosion resistant properties.

As a result of the increased demand for stainless steel, National Socket Screws commenced importing stainless steel fasteners to complement its well-established socket screw range.

As the capacity of international low-cost, high-quality industrial fasteners manufacturers grew National Socket Screws expanded its production range to include carbon steel fasteners.

Once National Socket Screws began to import an increasingly wider range of fastener products, the company decided it was time to rebrand itself in 2011 to more accurately reflect its product range and into the company we know and love today, NSS Fasteners (Pty) Ltd.

To ensure the quality of our continuous supply line, we have visited and qualified each supplier and established long lasting reliable business relationships.

As World trade duties and market conditions change resulting in low-cost production shifting, NSS Fasteners (Pty) Ltd. continues to source the best price supply line as opposed to the lowest cost.

As we value our strong supply line, we encourage you, our valued customer, also to value your supply line with NSS Fasteners (Pty) Ltd.
