NEFCO, East Hartford, Conn., a specialty supply partner, has acquired Southwest Fastener.
Southwest Fastener, headquartered in Phoenix, Ariz., supplies strut channel, hardware, strut fittings and specialty fasteners. Southwest operates out of three locations in Phoenix, Ariz., Albuquerque, N.M., and Dallas, Texas.
“Southwest Fastener represents a highly strategic fit for NEFCO, and we could not be more excited to partner with Ken, Mike, Terry and the rest of the great people at Southwest,” said Matthew Gelles, NEFCO CEO.
“Southwest Fastener meets two of our most important strategic priorities. First, Southwest Fastener is a focused SHARP® supplier with a very similar product, customer and end-market mix as NEFCO. Second, Southwest Fastener will enable us to expand into new geographies. Growing our western region presence is a strategic priority for NEFCO as we aim to be the number one SHARP and related products supply partner across the country.”
