ST. LOUIS — Huttig Building Products, Inc. has announced an agreement with American Fasteners Co. (AFC), expanding the fastener offering at Huttig.
AFC will produce collated fasteners in the Southwest U.S., offered under the Huttig-Grip brand, including plastic-strip round-head framing nails as well as paper-tape metal-connector nails. The domestic production will complement Huttig’s complete fastener offering.
“AFC is exactly the type of strategic partner we’re looking for,” said Bob Furio, Executive Vice President of the Huttig-Grip division of Huttig Building Products. “What they bring to this relationship aligns perfectly with what our customer network is demanding and allows us to respond to rapid market shifts allowing our customers to better manage their inventory.”
“The opportunity to ally ourselves with a company such as Huttig is very exciting,” said Alan Brown, President of American Fasteners. “Huttig’s tradition dates back to 1885 and we share their passion for high quality products and a ‘love for building.’ The Made in the USA program will make lead times and pricing more predictable, while supporting manufacturing jobs here at home.”
