Finding a reliable and reasonably priced source of Building Fasteners is an important job for the purchasing manager. Contractors will need to order all sorts of line fasteners that apply to their specific industry throughout their busy season. A one stop shop is ideal. Retailers and Fastener Distributors that carry all of the fasteners your company needs such as Line Fasteners, Marine Fasteners and other Building Fasteners will be able to help you order more efficiently, as well as deliver other benefits that will increase the bottom line.
Well stocked fastener distributors are sort of like department stores – you can get groceries, household items and even clothing at the same place. In this case contractors can order the screws, brackets and washers they need to complete their project from one place, saving them loads of time.
Fill out just one purchase order and have your accounting department record just one invoice (unless there are back orders). One source that can deliver all of the products you need simply makes sense for businesses today.
One of the major benefits of ordering from a retailer that stocks a full range of lines is the ability to save money. Every business likes to trim costs and contractors are no exception. By placing a large order that includes all of the fasteners required you will save money on freight. Shipping costs are on the way up with the rising cost of fuel and any way you can reduce those costs is beneficial.
You may also receive better discounts on your order when the amount of fasteners is larger. Many distributors will offer a booking program, especially for seasonal line fasteners. If spring is your busy time and you put in a very large order or commitment to order, the distributor may be able to give you a discounted price. Some even offer extended payment terms that create a better cash flow situation for your business.
None of these advantages are possible without a fastener distributor that carries the line fasteners that you need. Find that retailer and you will be able to cash in on these benefits. It’s certainly worth the effort of searching when you count up all of the advantages available.
Started my career in the fastener world in 1969 at, Parker Kalon Corp. a NJ based screw manufacturer located in Clifton, NJ working in inventory control, scheduling secondary production and concluding there in purchasing. In 1971 I accepted a sales position at Star Stainless Screw Co., Totowa, NJ working in inside sales and later as an outside salesman, having a successful career at Star I had the desire with a friend to start our own fastener distribution company in 1980 named: Divspec, Kenilworth, NJ. This was a successful adventure but ended in 1985 with me starting Melfast in August 1985 and have stayed competitive and successful to date. Melfast serves the OEM market with approximately 400 accounts nationally.
