Mountz, Inc., which manufactures and supplies torque tool products used to properly torque fasteners, has acquired the assets of fastener importer and distributor Mr. Metric, Inc, for an undisclosed sum.
Mr. Metric mainly serves the industrial marketplace, but a Mountz statement says its customer base includes “car and motorcycle enthusiasts, and hobbyists of all types who find it near impossible to locate specialty metric fasteners.”
The Mr. Metric brand will debut an e-commerce website to do business with users and distributors.
“Mr. Metric is a one-stop shop for those in need of metric products,” said Arely Herrera, business development manager for Mountz. “Our online store will bring to our customers a whole new opportunity to source, shop and order products on demand from an ISO 9001 certified company.”
San Jose, Calif.-based Mountz plans to roll out a fresh and revived Mr. Metric brand to 6,000 active customers. Mr. Metric will serve as the flagship brand name for all Mountz fastener products, which will be integrated into the Mountz logistics system and sold under the Mr. Metric brand name.
