One customer recently named STANLEY® Engineered Fastening the majority supplier of plastic clips for fuel and brake fluid pipes for its new classes of lightweight vehicles. Our solutions not only met the price requirements, but also provided superior technical performance and standardization that will allow the automaker to use these parts in future models.
Our plastic clips also deliver ECOSMART™ benefits—a true differentiator. Made up of 75% recycled materials, the clips significantly reduce the customer’s carbon footprint, reducing CO2 emissions by nearly nine tons per vehicle over its lifetime. STANLEY® Engineered Fastening provides a total system—from unique and custom fasteners to the systems and tools that assemble them—to maximize customer productivity, minimize costs and contribute to ECOSMART™ performance.
We can help our customers reduce the carbon footprint of their vehicles, while investing a lot of time and effort in the factories.- Thomas Ehrhardt
