About us

The Avdel® brand name dates back over 70 years. The name is derived from 'Aviation Developments', the company's original name when it was founded in 1936 to manufacture a unique range of Speed fasteners for the burgeoning aviation industry.

At the time aircraft construction was moving from metal and wood to all metal structures, such as the world famous Spitfire fighter plane. This required a new generation of fasteners and tools, which could be installed from one side of the assembly to replace conventional rivets. The Chobert® Speed Fastening® system, developed to meet these needs, is still widely used throughout the world today.

By the 1950’s the company was focusing on providing new value added assembly solutions, this “systems” approach created greater optimisation and provided customers with a single source for dependable fasteners and installation equipment.

In 1961 the company was renamed 'Avdel®' and substantial growth throughout the next two decades saw it become one of the world's largest manufacturers of blind fasteners and installation tools. Expansion of the Avdel® group was most significant in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s with several new facilities established in Europe, USA and the Asia Pacific region whilst a network of authorised distributors and concessionaires in over forty countries helped to ensure a truly Global reach.

In recent years the market trend towards new materials used in assemblies such as composites, high-strength thin gauge steels, and die-cast magnesium has presented new challenges to fastener manufacturers. Avdel® has been at the forefront of new product development to meet these new market requirements during which time fasteners such as Versa-Nut® threaded inserts, Maxlok® lockbolts, Rivscrew® PL, Klamp-Tite®, Bulbex®, and Avinox® rivets have all been developed as fastening solutions for the changing market.

The Avdel® group can support customer assembly requirements from the earliest stages of new product design by combining the latest engineering and design techniques with our 70 years market experience. Drawing on the expertise of our Engineers and the advanced testing capabilities of our facilities, laboratories and workshops, Avdel® has the aptitude to employ cutting edge Finite Element Analysis and modern design techniques to develop the right solution for our customers.
