March 6, 2018 | 4:30 pm CST

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Red Hawk Fasteners LLC has finalized the acquisition of Kyocera Senco’s composite fastener program assets, which includes tools, fasteners and related spare parts.

Red Hawk plans to support the existing business relationships that Senco has developed while expanding its own marketing reach around the world. Composite fasteners are a blend of fiberglass and resin that can be sanded, shaped and cut without damage to router bits, blades or sanding belts.

The company expects to strengthen the Red Hawk brand with a variety of products that will enhance global sales and marketing position, and plans to make the transition as smooth as possible and keep disruptions to a minimum.

Since 2014, Red Hawk’s primary focus has been to offer engineered composite fasteners and tools designed to work together to eliminate repetitive labor processes, reduce manufacturing costs and increase product quality and production facility output. See
