Anixter Component Solutions is a market-leading supplier and distributor of industrial fasteners and components. We have a range of over 12,000 standard catalogue parts covering fasteners, screws, nuts, plugs, caps, terminals, tapes, ties, clips and much, much more. And with Anixter, the possibilities are endless, because we offer a bespoke component manufacturing service for customers who need precise parts to suit their application. The quality of our products is of paramount importance to us. Over the years, we have built up a reputation for the highest standard of manufacturing, and we do not intend on relinquishing that reputation. That is why we have developed Quality Control Systems accredited to ISO 9001:2008 standards – this ensures that each and every component we produce meets and exceeds our customers’ expectations.

We have been involved in the production of metal and plastic fasteners for over 40 years, which is why we’re one of the UK’s most trusted suppliers. Our clients include those involved in IT and Electronics, Industrial Equipment and Accessories, Telecommunications, Lighting, Domestic Appliances and Equipment, Automotive, Aerospace, Transport, POS, Healthcare and Medical, Distribution, and many other industrial sectors. Below you will find information on some of our product categories. For detailed advice or guidance on the components we supply, please get in touch with the team at Anixter. They can help you find the most suitable products for your application, or discuss the possibility of bespoke manufacturing.

Plastic Screws

Plastic screws offer a wealth of specific benefits over their metallic counterparts. As well as being corrosion resistant, relatively chemical resistant and insulated against electricity, plastic screws can also be tightened without the risk of damaging sensitive equipment. We can provide a wide range of plastic screws with many types available, including hexagon cap head, cheese head, pan head, grub and countersunk, as well as many more. Customers can visit the website for further information on these and any of our products. 

Assortment Kits

Our Assortment Kits are ideal for those who need a selection of components, seals and fasteners in one place. Whether you're maintaining equipment or developing from scratch, it is always easier to have the part you need ready for use.

In fact, having a range of parts to hand is extremely useful when you need to complete a repair in time or build your prototype without having to wait for samples to arrive. Anixter Assortment Kits include stainless steel fasteners, metric nylon washers, dome plugs (hole plugs), nylon panel fasteners, metric nylon screws, O Rings, O Ring splicing kits, and metric nylon nuts.

Anixter has an extensive range of cable management products for clamping, routing and protecting cables and wires. Cable routing products include push mount, adhesive mount, edge mount and screw mount cable clips which are designed to bundle, mount and protect wiring and cables.

For the protection of cable we supply PVC and rubber grommets which prevent damage to wires as they pass through panels or bulk heads. Anixter is also an authorised distributor of Thomas and Betts products, which means we have a large selection of cable ties, including the popular Ty-Rap and Ty-Fast series of products. Other products within this category include cable glands, strain relief bushings and terminals.

Caps, Plugs and Security Fields

Caps and plugs offer a cost-effective way of protecting and masking components, panels or pipes during transport or painting/plating processes. We have a large selection of caps and plugs, all of them moulded in bright colours for enhanced visibility and improved product identification. This includes taper plugs, threaded plugs and caps, EPDM and silicon caps and taper plugs, flexible PVC caps, pipe caps, threaded hole plugs and screw/nut covers.
