Group of companies
SPAX International GmbH & Co. KG is a member of the ALTENLOH, BRINCK & CO Group, which includes four other independent corporate divisions.
ABC was the first screw manufacturer in Germany to significantly influence fastening technology. Using state-of-the-art cold massive forming technology, with new, innovative products and with intensive research and development work.
Altenloh, Brinck & Co. delivers goods all around the world. The ABC Group achieved a total turnover of approx. €250 million with the construction material, furniture and plastic processing industries and the strongly growing DIY sector.
For decades, SPAX International has stood for innovative, quality screw manufacturing. The success story began as early as 1823, when the company, then under the name of Altenloh, Brinck & Co., started industrial production of screws, in Germany.
Continuous further development culminated in the introduction of the new SPAX®, marking a leap in technological developments in screw production. The universally compatible new SPAX® with it's patented updates, such as the SPAX MULTI Head, the SPAX ground serrations or the SPAX 4CUT point, secures the company a leading position on the screw market for years to come.
SPAX International now has around 500 employees in Germany, producing up to 50 million screws each day. Subsidiary companies and partners in other countries throughout the whole of Europe and overseas make sure worldwide sales and distribution run smoothly. For many years now, SPAX has been not just a successful brand name, but also the epitome of the most modern screws for professionals and Do-it-yourself fans.
Uncompromised quality and absolute customer orientation are at the heart of both the company philosophy and its formula for success. It all starts with the development of the innovative machinery and complex systems used for screw manufacturing by ABC’s group of companies itself. This, and years of experience, give the company it's insurmountable competitive edge over competitors and imitators.
Qualifications and further training measures for employees are very much central to the company’s strategy. After all, a good product can only be manufactured by qualified and satisfied employees. That’s why we employ long-standing, well-trained staff, who have learned their trade inside out, so as to keep pace with rapid technological development.
At SPAX, craftsmanship and high-tech combine. Engineers, tool manufacturing and production staff all work in perfect harmony. The result is a branded product of the highest quality.
Most of all, we focus on the individual needs of the customer. That’s why SPAX produces countless product variations, all tailored to the differing requirements of our customers in industry, trade and DIY, all specially manufactured and packaged. Our approach to optimum customer service insists on constant availability for delivery and comprehensive product information. The high level of customer satisfaction proves us right.
