EFC International partners with REMINC

EFC International is expanding worldwide distribution of genuine parts made by Research Engineering & Manufacturing, Inc. (REMINC) authorised licensees.

REMINC’s licensed products include fastener brands such as the TAPTITE family of thread-forming screws. TAPTITE screws, primarily for metal applications, deliver increased performance and cost savings. They are said to remove the costly labour, solvents, and time required for the thread tapping process in manufacture, as well as any external hex nuts, lock washers and related hardware required for assembly.

TAPTITE fasteners are said to optimise metal-to-metal contact in assemblies, significantly improving their electrical grounding performance versus conventional machine screws. This performance makes TAPTITE fasteners the industry leading choice for electrical grounding applications in the global automotive and EV industries.

EFC’s team of application engineers support customers with advanced engineering assistance, direct factory relationships and rapid prototype solutions, as well as extensive value analysis and value engineering services. Matt Dudenhoeffer, President and CEO of EFC, states, “EFC, REMINC and REMINC’s Licensees look forward to this partnership knowing that end-users will benefit from our combined strengths.”

REMINC, together with its sister company Conti Fasteners AG, has a global licensee network with over 100 manufacturing locations worldwide.
