Rivets made by US factory
My Pop’s Rivets are made in America by aDP Rivet. This veteran owned company provides customers dependable rivet products from it’s Connecticut manufacturing facility. In a land where rivet manufacturers were once easy to find, it’s no longer the case and aDP Rivet is one of a very few actual manufacturers left here in USA. From raw material wire, to finished rivets is accomplished under one roof at their expansive facility. There is no need for aDP Rivet to wait for a boat from distant shores as it makes 100% of it’s products in house. This team of seasoned rivet makers has been doing this for over 30 years and has come to know the importance of how rivets work. They offer a “how to use blind rivets” page on their web site, which provides rivet comparisons along with photos of products and application videos.
Buying from an American manufacturer has numerous benefits with the assurance you’re just a phone call away from answers and the comfort of talking to the actual manufacturer. Far too often “other” rivet suppliers field your phone calls, then have to call distant shore contacts, wait days for answers and often tell you what you want to hear, rather than facts. Just because a source has a nice web site, or nice phone voice doesn’t mean they can supply you with the rivets you want. Especially when it comes to custom, colored or Painted rivets since these “other” sources don’t have the manufacturing ability to provide you with custom products. Painted, popped rivets should have ONLY the rivet body painted BEFORE it’s assembled with the pulling mandrel. If you are actually manufacturing painted rivets, that’s how it’s done, THE RIGHT WAY. If you’re one of the many “other” sources, you can’t do it the right way, so they paint the entire rivet, including the mandrel, which becomes a nightmare for the customer as the painted mandrel will jam up your riveting tools with seemingly endless paint flakes. This becomes a costly maintenance issue for your riveting process.
American made rivets also assures you are getting a high adhesion, epoxy paint blend finish. Buying colored rivets from “other” sources, who’s source may be China, could mean you’re getting a mystery mixture of who knows what. What makes you think China’s lead paint mixtures were only limited to toys? Rivets are certainly less critical, or likely to make the evening news if found to have high content of lead or who knows what toxic mix. Before you gamble another order for colored rivets with someone who isn’t the manufacturer, come to aDP Rivet and buy US made products direct from our factory.
