We are proud to be an American company, and for more than seven decades, we’ve worked with some of the world’s largest manufacturers to design and produce press-fit fasteners, provide machining expertise and identify fastening strategies that shorten lead times and optimize results.

Under his leadership, the company evolved from a one-machine, one-employee and one-customer shop to become a world leader in fastener solutions, and today supports more than a thousand customers worldwide.

Today DRIV-LOK is the preferred source of innovative, economical assembly and component solutions.
