Bossard Ireland


Welcome to Bossard Ireland (former Arnold Industries).  
Arnold Industries was founded in 1968 in Canton, MA, USA, as a specialist distributor of industrial fastenings. Arnold pioneered the development of innovative inventory management. Arnold Industries Cork opened in 2009 and was acquired by the Bossard group in late 2016. As a globally active group of companies Bossard procure and distribute connecting components of every kind and provide the engineering and logistics services associated with these products. Beyond this we offer industrial customers complete merchandise management and logistics solutions for C-parts.
