Empire Fasteners, Inc. opened its doors in 1969 as a premier metal fasteners Distribution Company dedicated to the sourcing and shipping of military-aerospace and commercial items throughout the United States and Canada.
Privately owned, Empire successfully grew in its inventory and sales due to an ever expending customer base.
Empire just moved to our brand new state of the art 17,200 square foot facility this past September.
With new ownership and management (as of 2014) Empire changed its name to Empire Fasteners, LLC. Our firm is strong and experiencing double digit growth yearly since 2014.
We are looking forward to continued growth and providing our customers with a business partner they can depend on.
Letter from the President
As the President and Principal, I’m happy to say that within our first year at Empire (since taking over the company back in August 2014), I’ve seen a major transformation take place since its founding almost half a century ago. Internally, our business model and every internal process has been revamped and made highly efficient as we obtained ISO9001:2015 and AS9120B certifications. We’ve hired new staff who bring a wealth of industry experience both in management and aerospace/military client services. Our sales program and hardware have been updated to a new state of the art ERP system that is architected for the fastener industry and customized to Empire’s needs.
Externally, through all of these internal changes, I have personally seen our hard and soft costs go down, which has spurned these benefits to be passed along to our client base via lowering their purchase order costs and turnaround time for items received. We have increased our outreach by calling and meeting with our clients’ needs in order to better service them. After all, our clients are not in the business of managing inventory, that’s part of our service to lessen their daily concerns. Many of our clients are very content when they partner with Empire as they value our inventory management solutions. Our commitment to our clientele is paramount – that will never change.
Every client is different, and I always want to hear your concerns and what we can do to tailor fit your needs. The near future will prove to illustrate how we stand behind our clients and make their businesses flourish. We hope you enjoy the many benefits Empire Fasteners can deliver to you today.
