PennEngineering is celebrating 75 years in 2017 as a global leader in innovative fastening technologies and solutions. Founded in 1942, the company pioneered the first-ever self-clinching fastener for thin metal assemblies and has since realised dramatic growth from an increasingly diverse portfolio of fastening products and relentless focus on customers and world-class technical expertise. Strategic acquisitions over the years have further extended PennEngineering’s footprint as problem-solver for an expanding universe of customer industries.
PennEngineering continues to reinforce and build leadership position with enhanced global manufacturing capabilities, ongoing new product development, focused technical services and engineering support, readily accessible online resources, and custom solutions tailored for application demands.
Internationally recognised and respected fastener and installation equipment brands under the PennEngineering umbrella include PEM, microPEM, PEMSERTER, PROFIL, Atlas, PennAuto, LinkTool Group, and Heyco. All contribute to the company’s mission to solve customer assembly challenges in the electronics, computer, data/telecom, consumer electronics, medical, automotive, marine, aviation and avionics, metalworking, and industrial manufacturing industry categories.
The acquisition of Heyco Products in 2016 particularly exemplifies the company’s evolution with the launch of a new “Engineered Plastics” platform. As a result, PennEngineering is uniquely qualified to offer an array of cost-effective solutions – whether for metal or plastic component assemblies – enabling customers worldwide to improve end-product quality and reduce total assembled costs.
Today, PennEngineering operates state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and key sales offices across North America, Europe, and Asia and is supported by a worldwide technical sales network tailored to customer needs and markets.
