/Going for Smart Factory -
Improved Price Competitiveness
Simon wants to build his company into a futuristic smart factory. Ever since he adopted an automatic inventory system, the company has successfully integrated the whole production process, which greatly reduces logistics costs and improves operating efficiency of the plant to make products more competitive. “We will continue to go further down the fastener industry and invest more in R&D, production, and DIY product packaging. We always put our clients first and continuously offer them better service to add up their values.”
Hisener Industrial Co., Ltd, founded in 2004 is based in Haining, Zhejiang (China). It started the business with threaded rods manufacture and the high quality products and excellent service it offered later helped the company gradually gain worldwide reputation and went on the road of business transformation. Considering the ever-growing fastener market in recent years, the increasing and more diversified demand for fasteners from customers, and with an aim of satisfying global customers’ various needs of bolts, screws, nuts, etc., Hisener set up a division in 2006 particularly dedicated to int’l trade and purchase and reinforced collaboration with other fastener producers at the same time in order to expand its product range. Later, with its sales and product range keeping growing, Hisener set up a new screw factory in 2010 and was also certified by ISO9001:2008 in 2011. Such significant improvements and growth over the past years made Hisener continuously appreciated by the industry. Main products of Hisener include wood screws, self-drilling screws, self-tapping screws, roofing screws, chipboard screws, drywall screws, machines screws, deck screws, and etc., most of which are applied in building, furniture and home improvement industries. Its average monthly capacity reaches around 500 tons, the monthly production of threaded rods is about 1,500 tons, and the annual export value lands at 50 million USD (all of these figures are still increasing year after year). In 2017, Hisener reported up to 57,000 tons (approx. 68 million USD) in total sales (incl. outsourcing) and sales were mostly generated from screws (30%), threaded rods (20%), nuts (20%), bolts (17%), washers (8%) and so on.
