An Orangeville-based manufacturer with a customer list including Boeing, Bombardier, Lockheed Martin, Rolls-Royce and NASA will be featured on The Discovery Channel.

On Wednesday (March 1), crews for The Discovery Channel’s “How It’s Made” television show visited TFI Aerospace’s 20,000-square foot facility on Riddell Road. 

Since its establishment in 1991, TFI Aerospace has been a global producer of high quality, specialty fasteners used in critical applications. 

TFI Aerospace has made its mark in producing male-threaded aerospace fasteners for commercial and military aircraft, as well as for space applications. Its customer base includes clients such as Boeing, Bombardier, Lockheed Martin, Rolls-Royce and NASA.

“We are dedicated to continual improvement and staying at the leading edge of technology in the development and manufacture of high-end fasteners,” the company’s website states.

On Wednesday, employees at the Orangeville facility provided How It’s Made television crews a sneak peek into the process of manufacturing male-threaded aerospace fasteners.

The Discovery Channel’s television series documents how various everyday products are made. During each episode, an off-screen narrator explains the manufacturing process of the products featured.
