Forty years ago our founder W.W. Stanley opened the doors of Stanley Industries, Inc. A fastener Distributor with a sharp emphasis on customer service, fast turnaround, and competitive pricing. Mr. Stanley knew that focusing on customer needs was the best way to grow the business.
He taught his first employees that going the extra mile to meet the customers needs would pay off, even if that meant running out and picking up the part that day from a local source. He was a firm believer that to be a successful distributor it would take more than just being the middle man. His upbeat energy and focus inspired his employees to strive for their best performance, leading us to our successful 40th
Anniversary, in 2007.
There are many milestones that have led us to this day:
1981 - Opened New Clawson W/H
1988 - Expanded into larger 50,000 Sq Foot Distribution Center
1992 - W.W. Stanley passed the business on to his children
1997 - One of the first fastener distributors in Michigan to become ISO 9002 Certified
1997 - Launched www.stanleyind.com opening up the global market
2003 - Certified to ISO 9001:2000
2009 - Certified to ISO 9001:2008
To this day we are proud of our roll-up-our-sleeves approach to business. We know that this is what our customers appreciate about us. After all those loyal customers are the key to our success.
We want to thank each one of you, for your partnership over the past 40 years!
As we look ahead, our plans include expanding our product lines to include a wider variety of industrial supplies, expanding our Customer Base to include the Defense Industry and to continue looking at better ways to serve our customers.
