NAFCO was founded in October of 1997. Based in Taiwan and China’s Shanghai, we are mainly engaged in the manufacture of fastener products for the aerospace, electronic and high-end industrial sectors.
In 2001 and 2003, NAFCO was granted certifications by GE, a world-famous aircraft engine manufacturer in America, and Snecma, of Europe’s Safran Group. NAFCO has since become the only certified manufacturer of aerospace engine fasteners in the Asia-Pacific region. Later on, the company was able to establish supply chain relationships with major domestic and overseas firms one after another, such as AVIO, AVIALL, IHI, SAMSUNG, EATON, FAURECIA, INFASTECH, and more.
Having always taken the latest technologies as the starting point, we are able to carry out continuous improvement of our production process in the aspects of castle nut slotting processes, pre-bulb forming techniques, stainless steel deep counter-bore forming technique, dual-axis tapping, partial silver plating technique, precision forming technique, quick die change, nut crimping technique, etc. in order to establish a well-grounded network in the global aerospace and automobile fastener market in the future.
In 1998, NAFCO secured the ISO 9001 Certification and then introduced the AS 9100 aerospace quality system standard in 2004, with NADCAP and several customer process certifications granted as well. In the meantime, our Metallic Material Laboratory was also granted S400 and FAL448 certifications from our customers. As such, customer demands will be the base for the development and implementation of our quality management system, so as to meet our customers’ expectations.
