Company History

Over 50 years ago our founder W.W. Stanley opened the doors to Stanley Industries, Inc.  At that time, Stanley mainly distributed screws, nuts, bolts, and other types of fasteners.  Today we are proud to be a distributor of fasteners and industrial supplies to customers all around the world.  At Stanley, we pride ourselves on exceptional customer service, quick turnaround times, and competitive pricing.

Mr. Stanley believed that focusing on customer service was the best way to grow Stanley Industries, and he was right!  50 years later Stanley now has a huge warehouse filled with various products, loyal customers, and dedicated employees that have chosen to make a job at Stanley their career.

He taught his employees that going the extra mile to meet customer needs would pay off.  Even, if that meant occasionally purchasing product from a different source or competitor, anything to meet our customers’ needs.

While he is happily retired now, W. W.  still visits Stanley to “check in” on Judy (president/daughter) & Jim (son-in-law), catch up with long time employees, and to ensure exceptional customer service is still the number one goal at Stanley!
