About Us

We manufacture and supply fasteners and wood connectors that outperform conventional screws, bolts, ties and nails.

The OSC Story

We're a British company, established in 1998 to distribute FastenMaster self-drilling fasteners, manufactured in the USA. We're still the exclusive importer and distributor for the entire product range.

However, we saw there was a need for a comprehensive British-made range of first-class corrosion-resistant screws and fasteners specifically for UK timber sizes, so we set about researching the market. We're proud to say that our Carpenters Mate self-drilling screws and fasteners have taken the UK trades market by storm.

We're also the name behind the Orbix range of self-tapping screws for electricians – screws proven to make electrical installations faster and, because Orbix screws don't snag or chafe at cabling, safer too.

In 2013 we became the exclusive importer for the CAMO hidden deck fastening system. An overwhelming success back in the States, CAMO makes quick work of decking projects and gives the perfect finish: no visible screw heads or screw holes.

We're always working on new products, talking to carpenters, builders, electricians and other tradesmen to find out what they really need to make their work faster, easier, safer and stronger.


We take a huge amount of pride in the quality of our workmanship, and every single Carpenters Mate product is designed and manufactured not only in accordance with the strictest guidelines and regulations, but in accordance with market need. Our customers know they get a product they can stake their reputation on – and we provide full technical specifications and technical product support for total reassurance.
