Sorting
J&M Plating has been sorting fasteners since 2001. Several of our trained sorting staff have been in the business for over 15 years. Due to the increase in automated assembly at the OEM's and Tier suppliers, we have developed a sorting department that is able to understand the complexities involved in the manufacturing and assembly operations. Today we are company that has the confidence of the fastener industry in our ability to deliver with quality, performance, and solutions to the Automotive and Industrial markets.
