Rivet Nut USA, a fastener and rivet distributor, is a division of Cardinal Components, Inc. Cardinal Components has been in business since 1983. As a nod to Cardinal’s stability, in 2018, Cardinal’s second generation family ownership took over the reigns as Cardinal’s founder stepped down after undergoing a successful multi-year succession plan.  Cardinal’s customer satisfaction, on-time delivery and quality metrics has increased to an average of 99.8% and sales growth remains steady.

Cardinal’s strength lies in the ISO 9001 quality of our products, as well as our proactive technical support and top notch customer service. We always answer the phone by the third ring; give us a shot!

Two operating divisions account for the majority of Cardinal’s business –

  • Specialty Fasteners: We offer stocking fastener distribution with some of the deepest know-how-to-get-it-done roots in the fastener industry. Did you know we’re the largest in-stock specialty fastener distributor in the USA? Our distribution focuses on rivet nuts (Bollhoff Rivnut® fasteners) and rivets (Industrial Rivet fasteners). We are proud to offer industry-leading German-engineered Bollhoff Rivnut® installation tools/ guns & Industrial Rivet installation tools/ guns (trust our years of experience when we say, “cheap installation tools are just that, cheap.”).
  • Custom Metal: By leveraging our close relationships with machining and fabrication principals, we are a one-stop-shop that will satisfy your requirements for custom precision machined, fabricated parts and assemblies. We especially do well at complex metal assemblies that require multiple machining, welding or fabricating processes.  Check out our website at  https://www.cardinalcomponents.com for more information.
