About Us

Fastenix was founded in 2008 by Mike Wayte.  With over 29 years of experience in the self-clinching sheet metal fastener business, he saw an opportunity in our new global economy for a streamlined supply operation - same quality, superior service - at a fraction of the price for clients.  Mike has assembled a team of ISO9001:2009 certified factories to bring high quality, RoHS compliant, ASTM standardized products to the North American market.  Fastenix operates with the highest level of integrity and honesty, and is always customer focused.


Mike Wayte was NW Regional Manager for R.C. Dudek from 1994-2000.  After R.C. Dudek was acquired by Penn Engineering (R), Mike oversaw all NW Operations including Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana.  In 2003, Mike founded Fabmatrix, representing a number of premium component lines.  Each of these lines quickly became the top sellers in his markets.  Fastenix is headquartered in Seattle, Washington.
