TORONTO – Interfast Inc., a global aerospace and industrial fastener distributor, announced it has purchased certain assets of United Kingdom-based Burwood Fastener Products Ltd. and has launched a new European division that will operate under the name Interfast Europe Ltd.

“Interfast Europe integrates the best of both organizations and will offer a comprehensive range of fastener products from more than 40 manufacturers, engineering product support and extensive supply chain management expertise,” says Peter Oleck, director of Interfast Inc. and general manager of Interfast USA. “Interfast has been a valued and trusted partner to the world’s leading aerospace and industrial companies for more than 40 years. We’re confident that the newly formed organization will bring a new critical mass to servicing the European market.”
