    Our Commitment to Our Customers - Five Resolutions for the New Year!

    Posted by Austin Hardware on Jan 4, 2024 9:30:00 AM


    Happy New Year! We hope you and your family had a joyous and rejuvenating holiday season.  

    The new year is a time when many commit to resolutions. We’re no exception at Austin Hardware®. So here are our five resolutions for 2024. 

    #1 More New Solutions for You 

    Our engineers will continue to work with customers to understand their needs and goals and design or reinvent products to help meet them. Our Austin Guaranteed Engineered Solutions™ portfolio stands as a testament to that commitment. With several new products in the pipeline, we’re excited about what the new year will bring. 

    #2 Redesigned Website 

    We’re revamping our website to make doing business with us online faster and easier than ever. The project is in an early stage, but we expect to launch later in the year, so stay tuned. 

    #3 Getting the Basics Right 

    While many companies get caught up in their revenue goals, they lose sight of doing the basics right. To borrow a sports metaphor, the “blocking and tackling” of their business. At Austin, we strive to get those basics right. Things like having the right stock on the shelves. Packing and shipping your orders with care and on time. Fair pricing for challenging economic times. We’ve never lost sight of that and resolve that we never will.

    Engineering Methodology for Product Improvement

    Posted by Austin Hardware on Nov 10, 2022 1:01:15 PM

    We're always looking for ways to improve our lives through the products we use. We seek products that make tasks easy, work better and faster, last longer, cost less, feel good to use, and make us feel good.

    In business, manufacturers look to add components to their end products that improve their customers' lives and solve problems, adding value and giving them a competitive advantage. But that search can be complicated as many affordable, readily available components are highly commoditized, making those unique, differentiating products a challenge to find.

    The answer could lie in the design of custom components that can solve your unique problem, help your end product stand out, and give you a competitive advantage.

    Your Complete Guide to Fastener Nuts, A New Austin Hardware® Two-Part Blog Series, Pt.2.

    Posted by Rob Dell'Elmo on Sep 13, 2021 10:00:00 AM

    In a previous post, we discussed many of the different types of standard fastening nuts. In this edition, we’ll talk about locknuts. The major difference between standard nuts and locknuts is standard nuts consist simply of a threaded hole, while locknuts are designed to prevent loosening when exposed to vibration. As with standard nuts, there are many different variations of locknuts from which to choose. We’ll take a look at some of the more popular locknuts here.
