Unifast to distribute Camloc products in Italy

Alcoa Fastening Systems (AFS) has appointed Unifast srl as the new Italian distributor for its Camloc range of products.

The Camloc range of push-turn and push-push, quick-release fasteners, draw-latches, solid inserts and locks, hinges and handles are used in electronics, industrial, transportation, aerospace and defence applications. The fasteners are captive so they remain attached to the machine or the guarding enabling instant access to electrical cabinets, for example. Vibration resistant, safe and easy to use, the products are available in a comprehensive range of styles and sizes.

Located in Settimo Torinese, Unifast srl employs 30 people and celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2010. The company, which is a well established distributor for the Huck brand from AFS, specialises in developing full service engineering solutions for a variety of customers in the automotive, truck, trailer, rail and HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) industries.

Commenting on Unifast srl's appointment, company director Gianni Bergadano said: "Unifast has a long and successful working relationship with AFS, now reinforced by the addition of Camloc to our product offering. We are currently working on a number of automotive applications using Camloc, which includes one for Iveco a leading manufacturer and supplier of commercial trucks, parts and diesel engines. With support from the marketing, technical and engineering teams at AFS we look forward to maximising Camloc's potential throughout Italy."
