1. In House Tooling Design
Unlike other cold headers, we have our very own tooling and design facility in-house for both new and existing parts.

Broken tooling can take several weeks for replacement when using the conventional method of ordering from outside toolmakers. By fabricating and stocking these necessary toolsets, we have implemented a prevention to keep our machines running and your deliveries on time.
2. Superior Quality
If there’s one factor that makes or breaks a supplier, it would have to be quality.
Quality is one of the most influential factors when choosing a new supplier (next to price of course). Remember that old saying, “You get what you pay for?” Well, in today’s world that’s true more times than not. Poor quality results in extended lead times, late deliveries due to returns, customer downtime, customer loss, and an increase in overall cost.
At Grandeur Fasteners, we are committed to every customer and take pride in manufacturing the most “special “ and highest of quality cold headed products in the world. We truly believe that superior quality builds customer trust, increases fellow recommendations, eliminates product returns, and maintains positive business relationships.

- Provide our customers with products that meet their expectations in price, delivery, service and most importantly, QUALITY.
- Involve employees in the pursuit of continuous improvement in the quality of our products and the efficiency of our activities throughout the company.
3. Competitive Pricing
“Having competitive pricing is one thing, being dirt cheap is another.”
Pricing internally can be a difficult task for many suppliers, but Grandeur has it down to the T. Equipped with a variety of pricing and lead time options, Grandeur’s estimation team uses competitive intelligence matched with superior quality products to make us the most recognized cold headed fastener and component supplier on the market, regardless of the design or material requirements.
Our goal at Grandeur is to always offer competitive pricing, while ensuring great quality and excellent customer service. We consistently compete in the market, and always have more value to add than our competitors… That’s how we gain market share.
Bottom Line : “There is indefinitely more to a partnership than pricing alone.”
Beware of – “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap!” (not referring to the AC/DC top hit single released in 1981)
Many buyers today may perceive extremely low selling prices as a higher investment risk. This is due to the sellers increased motivation to get your attention. As experienced businessmen, we know that tactics such as this reflect poor conduct and always result in a bad ending. So don’t fall for the “low ballers” who entice you with unrealistic prices and jack them sky high proceeding your next order. Our advice to you, “be weary of dirt cheap pricing, it usually means poor quality or substantial price increases in the near future.”
Being bound to high business morals and ethical values, we frown upon these devious types of allurements, and will not mislead you in any way. Grandeur promises to consistently provide you with our best pricing possible, while communicating market trends on new orders.
