Birmingham Fastener, Inc. News-Blog
Birmingham Fastener founder Howard Tinney wants the industry to know the Alabama-based manufacturer and distributor remains in business.
An industry veteran quoted in the October 20, 2009, issue of FIN referred to Birmingham Fasteners as being one of numerous fastener manufacturing names to disappear after the tariffs of the 1970s.
However, Tinney pointed out that the current Birmingham Fasteners is the only company to hold the name.
Many people in the industry referred to the Bethlehem Steel fastener division or Lamson & Sessions' Birmingham operations as simply, "Birmingham."
Birmingham Fastener is entering its 30th year of manufacturing and distributing fasteners.
Birmingham Fastener manufactures custom and non standard fasteners for the structural steel fabrication, metal building manufacturers, transportation, water works and utilities, OEMs, MRO, construction and other industries.
Birmingham also distributes fasteners through its Hanceville Distribution Center in Hanceville, AL. The Alabama Aerospace division, founded in 1995, supplies aerospace, military and commercial fasteners and electronic components. Alabama Aerospace stocks 250,000 line items from 150 manufacturers.
