Posted by Michael on 21st Oct 2019

Brody asks: I used to own a fastener company and have a ton of fasteners that I'm looking to liquidate and unload.  Would you be interested in buying any of them?  

You can send the excel file with a list of what you have to:  Please note that we will only get back to you if we are interested. 

Lauren asks: I'm looking for a particular type of fastener.  I see you carry the import version, I just wanted to see if you carried the same part but domestically made?  I only need a small quantity like what you offer for the import.

Hi Herman.  The first thing to do would be to fill out a credit application.  Please make sure you sign it.  However, one of the things we look at when granting to credit to an applicable business are things like how many years you have been around and we will also ask and check with references as well.  So if you are just starting out, you might want to wait some time before trying to establish credit.
