Why American Manufactured Fasteners are Best

During these uncertain times, the international supply chain has been disrupted, causing significant order delays and increased downtime for projects across industries. Buying American manufactured fasteners is becoming the best solution for companies across industries to combat unwanted downtime and ensure you receive quality fasteners when you need them.

The Birmingham Fastener family of businesses is proud to have three manufacturing locations: 

  • Birmingham Fastener Manufacturing
  • Houston Fastener Manufacturing
  • Atlanta Rod and Manufacturing

Each of our manufacturing locations supply reliable, quality parts that can be manufactured and delivered in a fraction of the time it would take to import from another country. With faster lead times, a large inventory, and a capable team of experts, our customers can be confident that they will receive quality American manufactured fasteners and superior service with each order.
