Ajax EF is the largest manufacturer of high-quality industrial and automotive fasteners in the southern hemisphere, and has been Australia's premier name in bolts for over 100 years.
Ajax Engineered Fasteners is the biggest manufacturer of quality cold-forged bolts and fasteners in Australia. Ten thousand tonnes of bolts are produced at the purpose-built factory in Braeside Victoria every year.
The company’s ability to perform the crucial processes of heat treatment and plating in-house means that greater control can be exercised over the finished product, resulting in high quality fasteners.
Ajax EF represents a benchmark in fastener quality, and is considered the prime source of innovation and technology in Australia.
As world markets continue to change and issue new challenges to Australian manufacturing, so Ajax EF evolves to meet those challenges and ensure that the brand maintains the highest levels of quality and satisfaction to its customers.
Automotive customers such as Ford, General Motors, Toyota, Mitsubishi, Delphi and PBR all trust the integrity of their own brands to Ajax quality.
The same stringent processes that achieved QS9000 certification ensure that all products made at the Braeside plant are the highest quality available in Australia.
Ajax Engineered Fasteners is wholly owned by Global Engineered Fasteners (GEF), GEF also owns the full-service automotive supplier Global Automotive Logistics (GAL).
Global Engineered Fasteners (GEF) is jointly owned by Allen Capital Private Equity and a team of company directors.
