Lindstrom announced the acquisition of Titan Fastener Products, Inc., a leading master distributor of packaged fasteners and related products, specializing in inch dimensions. From its headquarters in Brunswick, GA and additional facilities in Chicago, IL, Titan provides over 45,000 different packaged products to its fastener and industrial distributor customers.
Mike Wrenn, President of Lindstrom, commented, “The Titan name is well known in the marketplace. Our combined product offering is over 133,000 SKUs, the broadest line in the industry, and we are very excited by our opportunities as we combine the strengths of both companies. We believe our distributor customers want more choice. Our goal is to satisfy all their specialty fastener needs with the same high level of service and flexible, personal attention for which Lindstrom is known.”
With the acquisition of the Titan business, Lindstrom will be able to offer an unparalleled level of choice and value to the market, specifically:
The largest inventory of hard-to-find fasteners
Parts made to any U.S. or international standard
A variety of available materials, including steel, stainless, and brass
Any plating or other secondary process
Special lengths, thread pitches, and other custom services for inch & metric sizes
A wide variety of fittings, hardware and other non-fastener products
The full range of BN part numbers through an exclusive arrangement with Bossard
We view Titan as the premier master distributor of packaged fasteners, specialty and hard-to-find fasteners, and other related products,” stated Jeff Fox, chairman and chief executive of Harbour Group, which owns Lindstrom. “Titan Fasteners is a unique company with a strong market presence, and the Titan team is respected as one of the best in the industry. Their service levels are terrific, particularly given their focus on lower volume, non-commodity SKUs. The combination with Lindstrom brings tremendous value to distributors. The extensive product lines of both businesses, combined with their strong culture of customer service, will further improve their ability to serve their customers.”
“Lindstrom’s culture is a great fit with us,” said Eric Kuchar, Titan’s President. “Both companies are committed to developing personal relationships and really partnering with distributors to customize solutions to meet their needs. We realize that one size does not fit all, so we are flexible in our approach. Like Lindstrom, value-added services such as packaging, plating, and kitting are a very large part of what we offer. And being friendly, easy-to-do-business-with, and first in service are the goals that have guided both organizations for decades.”
In conjunction with the acquisition of Titan, Lindstrom can now offer a range of high-grade fasteners in inch dimensions, to complement their metric product range, including:
A variety of socket products
Grade 5 and 8 hex head cap screws & nuts
Stainless steel hex head cap screws & nuts
Nylon insert locknuts
Further, this new product range will be offered with the same flexible options and value-added services traditionally available from Lindstrom, including:
Orders in any quantity required, bulk or packaged
Custom packaging and labeling options
Kits and assortments, assembled to the customer’s needs
