Headquartered in Mettmann, Mercanta GmbH has been a leading manufacturer and supplier of fasteners for over 30 years.

The company’s product portfolio covers DIN and standard parts, in particular circlips, snap rings, shim rings and supporting washers, disc springs, locknuts and locking washers, as well as a wide range of related articles and drawing parts.

Mercanta also offers contract manufacturing in the fields of welding, turned and milled parts, laser assemblies, and steel construction.

Our customer base primarily comprises wholesalers and direct industrial users around the world.

Our Customers

Our circlips, snap rings, shim rings and supporting washers, locknuts and disc springs are used in many different components of a car. Our customers for these products are primarily first and second tier suppliers. Our parts are mainly installed where they can’t be seen – and yet they take over safety-related functions. Some of the installation locations:

Braking systems
Chassis components
Universal / cardan shafts
Steering systems
Roller bearings
And many others

In addition to our standard product range, we naturally also offer custom solutions and special designs from customer drawings. Ask us!

We are proud to supply the leading dealers in Germany and Europe with our parts. Through our commercial customers, be they multinationals or small family-run enterprises, we achieve an extremely high and comprehensive coverage, and are thus represented in many different industries. We support our partners with technical assistance, personal and individual care, logistic services, or marketing support.

Another area is the supply of spare parts to car workshops. We deliver OEM parts and substitute products.

We make our contribution to the construction of efficient drives – our circlips, snap rings, shim rings and supporting washers, locknuts and disc springs are part of modern drive systems. We help to make sure that modern and future-oriented drive solutions stay cost-effective, not only with the components themselves, but also with our logistic and general services. Although we supply a relatively small element of the end products – that’s something we do really well! You can find our solutions in the following products/industries:

General mechanical and plant engineering
Drive and conveyor systems
Warehouse systems
Escalators and elevators
Tool engineering
Wind power plants

The great thing about our DIN and standard parts is that you can use them anywhere. For decades now, our proven circlips, snap rings, shim rings and supporting washers, locknuts and disc springs have been used wherever something rotates or moves. We supply customers in the following sectors:

Electrical and garden tools
Handheld tools
Household appliances
Medical technology
Furniture manufacturing
Lock systems
Water systems

A special focus of our parts lies in the areas of agricultural machinery, construction machinery, and lifting systems. On account of the tough conditions which they have to cope with, special surface coatings as well as heavy-duty and large ring types are used here. The size range of our parts, with diameters from 3 to 1000 mm and thicknesses from 0.1 mm to 18 mm, covers practically every conceivable application. We look forward to receiving your queries!
