Founded in October 1997 by a team of expert US aerospace fastener manufacture managers and Taiwan master production and financial managers, NAFCO has established a well-staffed Engineering Department with R&D, Design, Manufacturing Engineering and Production Tools Design capabilities to develop and retain corporate proprietary core technologies. Equally important in the sight of NAFCOs management team are the recruitment of specialists in related fields and the accumulation and passing-on of experience. In the meantime, the management team has fully utilized its twenty something years of experience in the fastener industry and decades of dealing with the Asia market to incorporate European and Asia-Pacific technologies to produce both metric and non-metric system products.
In May, 2001, NAFCOs new headquarters facility was inaugurated, making NAFCOs total land and factory area respectively 30,912.4 and 39,054.4 square meters, and, shortly afterwards, it came into full operation.

For quality production, NAFCO employs such materials as Waspaloy, Inconel, A286, Carbon Steel, Alloy Steel, Al-Alloy, and Titanium Alloy, etc. Included in our manufacturing processes are materials selection, prototyping and testing. To support our manufacturing work, we have at our disposal machines for turning, forming, marking, crimping, pressing, tapping, degreasing, acid/alkali washing, sand blasting, as well as CNC, automatic lathes, heat treatment furnaces with temperatures up to 1200?, silver plating and dry-film lubricating facilities, among others. And our gages/testing equipment allow us to conduct metallurgy test, tension tests, three-dimensional measurements, comprehensive optical sorting, x-ray coating thickness inspection, NDT, Johnson Gage, etc, to ensure product quality and ongoing production efficiency.
