Dejond launched its first Tubtara® blind rivet nuts back in 1954, which were then machined on a lathe. Only 10 years later, production methods evolved towards more specialised cold forming technology. Today Dejond offers one of the widest ranges of high-quality, cold-formed blind rivet nuts in the world. Each and every rivet nut is manufactured at its EN 9100 certified production facility in Wilrijk (Belgium). Tubtara® is a registered trademark of Dejond.
Besides standard and customised blind rivet nuts, the Tubtara® Division can also custom cold form selected parts according to its customers’ drawings for very specific applications.
EN 9100 certification: Quality guaranteed
The entire Tubtara® team is involved in quality assurance and is more than ever committed to meeting the challenges of the future. Living up to our social and ecological responsibilities, we try to create a balance between economic, social and environmental aspects through responsible manufacturing methodologies.
Upon the specific request of our aerospace customers, the Tubtara® Division upgraded its ISO 9001 quality management system to the higher EN/AS/JISQ 9100 level in 2014. This certificate helps Dejond to meet its customers’ most stringent requirements while strengthening its position in the aerospace industry which imposes strict safety standards and controls to ensure reliable quality.
