What Are Fredserts?

These uniquely designed, U.S.-made inserts were devised by engineer Fred Wheeler, who sought a way to improve the construction of the Expeditionary Fighting Vehicles (EFVs) used by the U.S. Marine Corps. Because these vehicles had to function in demanding field environments, they had several strict requirements that had to be addressed. EFVs needed inserts that would provide watertight seals, resist corrosion caused by saltwater, and allow for easy replacement when necessary. Thus, Fredserts were born.

Patented by the General Dynamics Corporation, Fredserts have found a place in a number of high-profile industries. The military, aerospace, agriculture, shipbuilding, automotive, and transportation sectors have all utilized Fredserts when the job calls for high-quality fastener elements. Manufactured in an ISO 9001:2000 accredited facility, Fredserts are certified to Military Specification MIL-I-45914A.
