Celebrating 30 years as an aerospace hardware distributor
In January of 1985 John Davis started Radial Rod Repair, or RRR. It was started as an overhaul shop for Pratt & Whitney radial engine connecting rods for World War II and Korean war era airplanes. Shortly after, a friend of John’s started receiving in surplus hardware from the cold war era. There were hundreds of pallets of material that came back to the USA from NATO storage facilities in England. Radial Rod Repair began to sell these NATO spares as an aerospace hardware distributor soon after. As time went on surplus was no longer the way of the industry. It began to require strict quality control and lot traceability. Radial Rod Repair sold off the machine shop and began to focus on stocking certified and traceable fasteners and fittings.
To better reflect the company as an aerospace hardware distributor, and no longer the machine shop that it had started as, the name was changed to 3-R Sales. Now stocking millions of fasteners and fittings, we are into our 30th year in the aerospace industry. We carry an extensive line of products series like the popular AN MS NAS HL BAC, along with many other military and aerospace parts. As well as not only servicing the aerospace industry, but also ground support, naval, firefighting, and many other sectors. Along with our extensive line of aerospace hardware, if you have any questions about specifications you can ask our quality department. There is a good chance they may have the answer. These 30 years have given us the experience and knowledge to help you with all your hardware needs no matter the application.
