BRALO, manufacturer and distributor of fastening systems, has been working for over 35 years in the automotive sector to offer a wide range of high quality solutions, adapted to the requirements of its customers, which it incorporates in its production processes regardless of where they are carried out.

The automotive sector produces great technological challenges and BRALO responds to the expectations of the sector by creating innovative products with the latest technology. Its production factories are based on the highest quality standards, certified by an external certification body. BRALO is IATF 16949 certified enabling direct supply to OEMs and BRALO is ISO 14001 certified, supporting its commitment to environmental management systems.
