Re: 18-8/304/316/... SS fasteners?


I actually work for Allied, and while some of our shops are in China, titanium has been a strategic metal there for decades, so the quality control is very high. Basically the same guys who made titanium parts for Chinese Mig fighters are now making titanium chainplates. We do have shops elsewhere though, and can send a part order to another country if the buyer prefers. Generally we send the order to our shop with the lowest cost to manufactur, which can vary depending on what other jobs are running at the time.

Either way once parts are made we ship everything to our QC shop here in the states and check them for quality, and conformity with what was ordered. If a part doesn't meet our standards we ship it back and remake the part. Only once CQ has approved it does it get shipped to the end user.
