Tubtara: Riveting Matters

In 1954 Dejond launched its first Tubtara® blind rivet nuts, machined on a lathe. Only 10 years later the production started specializing in cold forming technology. Today Dejond offers one of the widest, cold formed ranges of high quality blind rivet nuts in the world, all manufactured in its EN 9100 certified production facility in Wilrijk (Belgium). Tubtara® is Dejond's registered brandname.

Besides standard and customized blind rivet nuts, the Tubtara Division also concentrates on cold forming selected parts according to customers' drawings for very specific applications.
