The story of Fasten Group starts in 1964 as we were a small company that specialized in the production of hemp ropes used for boats and ships. For six years we continued to grow steadily until we expanded our production capabilities in the 1970's to include the manufacturing of steel wire and other wire rope products. Today, we have a diverse catalog of products that include all kinds of steel wires, wire ropes, optical communication products, mechanical equipment, and artificial marble.
We produce 850,000 tons of wire and rope products every year and we do business in countries all over the world.
The Strengths of Fasten
1. Our state-level enterprise technology center and metal testing center allow Fasten to be at the forefront of many national key science and technology support programs. We also undertake the secretariats of Steel Wire Ropes subcommittee of Steel Technology Committee in SAC(SAC/TC 183/SC 12) as well as Steel Wire Ropes Technology Committee in International Organization for Standardization(ISO/TC 105). We also operate the only National Metal Wire Product Engineering Technology Research Center in China.
2. Fasten's current production bases cover manufacturing for conveyor belt steel cord, bridge cable, PC strand, stainless steel products, fine cable, tire cord (joint venture), and fiber optics among others.
3. In 2013, Fasten's conveyor belt steel cord was awarded a certificate of exemption from the customs examination by the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of the People's Republic of China. This expedites our production and shipping policies.
4. In 2016, we became one of China's national model enterprises as a wire and cable manufacturer. We were also the recipient of the award at the fourth China Grand Awards for Industry.
