History of 3-R Sales
From Repair Shop to Distributor of Aerospace Hardware
3-R started out in January of 1985 as a radial engine connecting rod overhaul shop for old World War II & Korean War planes. The original name was Radial Rod Repair. As the years passed, the old aircraft began to get phased out, and RRR needed to change as well. A friend was working with NATO surplus material from England at a time when literally tons of materials were being released due to the end of the Cold War era. When this material arrived in California, it was sorted out and 3-R was given a chance to sell the aerospace hardware items. This was “back in the day” when surplus was a big supply of aviation material.
As we all know, things changed in the last 30 years, and so did 3-R. We sold off the machine shop and all the surplus hardware to concentrate on new & traceable aerospace hardware. As our focus became military and aerospace grade hardware the name was changed to 3-R Sales to better reflect our hardware sales division and the close-out of the Radial Rod Repair component.
Where has this taken us? 3-R Sales is now home to millions & millions of traceable & certified fasteners that all users can use. From the bi-plane era to the newest satellite, jet & military applications, we have the products that fit. And to further our commitment to quality, we are an ISO-approved company.
