A First American Company, Putting American Manufacturing First
In 1982, after spending 15 years in the fastener supply industry, R.J. Harris was considering going into business for himself. With a little strategy and some financial advice, R.J. finally took the plunge and launched Southern Fasteners & Supply from a small office in Winston-Salem, NC.
Even though his company’s minority-owned status might draw some business on its own, R.J. knew it really took great products, excellent knowledge and even better service to win loyal customers and grow as a business.
So for the last 30 years, we’ve been doing just that. We’ve made treating our customers right a core business principle and we’ve grown to 11 locations across the country. We stand head and shoulders above suppliers who sell fasteners (plus mops and brooms and toilet paper, too), but fasteners aren’t their specialty.
Fasteners are our specialty. It’s what we do.
We take pains to only supply the best fasteners around, and we employ only the most experienced “nut-heads” we can find — many with 15-30 years’ experience themselves. It’s their deep experience and knowledge of even the most unusual parts that gives our clients in the defense, oil and gas, and outdoor theme park industries confidence in us as a truly exceptional vendor.
Today, Southern Fasteners and Supply is known as a top fastener supplier to major industries of all types. Our wide distribution network of 10 stocking warehouse locations spans the country and is poised to speedily deliver more than 130,000 kinds of fasteners anywhere in the U.S. and beyond. And through it all, our commitment to service is stronger than ever.
So if you’re looking for a dependable fastener supplier with the reach, inventory, and experience to keep your company up and running — you’ve found us.
