On-shore supply arrangements will speed delivery times, create jobs and lower costs

Dallas, TX (OCTOBER, 2017) – PrimeSource Building Products, the leading market distributor of top-brand building products, is expanding its network of domestic manufacturing partners to boost US-based production of certain Grip-Rite collated fasteners.

“Shifting manufacturing capacity to inside the U.S. will result in shorter lead time for orders, lower costs and improve our ability to service our customers,” VP of Fasteners Brad Johnson said. “Along the way, we’re helping to create manufacturing jobs here in the U.S.”

Grip-Rite collated fasteners are designed to fit Grip-Rite pneumatic tools, as well as tools from most other manufacturers. Grip-Rite nails and staples are supported by the “Jam-Free Guarantee” that ensures tools will load, feed, and perform properly in all brands operated with the specific fastener.

“As new construction and remodeling projects across the country continue to grow, collated fasteners will be in high demand, said Drew Sundholm, Director of Fasteners and Chairman of the board for ISANTA “Developing a domestic manufacturing pipeline, will allow for smaller production lots, and custom orders”.

“There is currently not enough domestic production capacity to fulfill the needs of our customers. We are working diligently to build our domestic supply chain,” Sundholm said. “Offering a better logistic solution at a competitive price for our customers, while investing in the US workforce and economy is our goal.”

First introduced in 1975, Grip-Rite is the top-selling brand of fasteners in America and brings more than 40 years of trusted performance and quality to American builders. The Grip-Rite brand represents quality and value to professional contractors on job sites across North America, including the Caribbean.
