About Smith Fastener Co, Inc.: Fastener Supplier, Stud Fabrication, Machine Shop, Coatings & more

Smith Fastener Co, Inc. was founded in 1965 when W.J. Smith purchased the ZIM Supply Company and began to transform a general mine and mill supply house into what is now a complete fastener distribution center. Fifty years later and into the third generation, we have become a very significant fastener supplier in the regional markets of West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Texas, Ohio, Virginia and Kentucky.

We have been fortunate to experience growth over the past several years and reinvested to build our new 80,000 square foot warehouse and office in South Charleston, WV.   We moved into our new facility in October, 2014.  In 2013 we opened operations in Franklin, PA and Longview, TX. Our Pennsylvania warehouse/office has 13,000 square feet and the Texas warehouse/office has 15,000 square feet. Both facilities are staffed with highly qualified and talented people.

Our machine shop continues to grow with the addition of new CNC lathes and complimentary pieces of equipment that let us produce “parts to print” and customized fastener items critical to our customers many needs. Our coating shop has been upgraded and continues to xylan coat fasteners for a variety of industries.

All three facilities have stud fabrication capabilities with threaded bar inventories and alloy nuts of various grades. We produce in-house tap end studs, double end studs and combo studs.

We are extremely proud of our operations and hope all customers will have the opportunity to visit us.  If not, we hope our website will provide the walk-through visit until you have a chance to come in.
