Industrial Rivet & Fastener Announces Plans for a 9th U.S. Distribution Center

Industrial Rivet & Fastener Company

Industrial Rivet & Fastener Company, a global distributor, manufacturer and importer of quality rivets and fasteners, today announced that it is expanding its domestic presence with a new U.S. distribution center located in Burlington, North Carolina.

According to Bill Goodman, President of Industrial Rivet, the company has leased a 32,000 square foot facility at the Willow Springs Industrial Park in Burlington. “We are currently in the process of expanding and reconfiguring our home office space in New Jersey to increase its assembly, kitting and manufacturing capabilities,” Goodman explains. “As a result, we’ll be moving some of the distribution functions currently handled here to the new North Carolina warehouse.” Goodman says that the facility will initially be run with existing Industrial Rivet employees, but plans to add staff as the distribution center grows over time.
The lease was signed in September 2010 and the company hopes to have the warehouse operational by November. Once it is up and running, the distribution center will take over many of the distribution functions currently handled in New Jersey, and will house a training facility that will offer classes to customers and employees. With the addition of their new state-of-the-art wireless warehouse capabilities that have only very recently gone live, Industrial Rivet expects that shipping and receiving will flow more efficiently in the new North Carolina space.

In addition to New Jersey and North Carolina, Industrial Rivet also has distribution centers in California, Colorado, Missouri, Texas, Utah and Illinois. Their international locations include Australia, Canada, China, Germany, Mexico, Spain, Taiwan and the United Kingdom.
“We’re excited to see the Industrial Rivet family continue growing, especially as we approach our 100th anniversary in business,” says Goodman. “My grandfather started this business in Brooklyn, New York without – I’m sure – ever a thought of doing business outside that borough. It’s amazing to me what we’ve been able to accomplish.”
