Why Choose OSC Orbix?

We are proud to be the UK’s original self-drilling screw supplier. Our journey began in 1998 when we distributed FastenMaster self-drilling fasteners, an American brand. 

Having worked with FastenMaster, we identified a gap in the market for a British made range of first-class corrosion-resistant screws made for UK timber sizes. This is when Carpenters Mate was born, and has now grown to be one of the trade’s favourite self-drilling wood screws. 

What’s more, we are also the names behind the Orbix brand. We developed these screws with electricians in mind, and worked closely with experienced electricians to create a revolutionary screw. The self-tapping electrical screw is proven to make electrical installations easier, cleaner and quicker – guaranteed to last the lifetime of the project and achieve a snag-free seamless finish. 

In 2013, we become the exclusive importer for the CAMO hidden decking fastening system. This successful brand is a firm favourite in the United States, so we thought why wouldn’t the UK market love it just as much? The CAMO hidden decking system is designed to make quick work of decking projects, offering a seamless finish – no screw head or screw holes to be seen.
