Würth Industry North America (WINA) announced that it has acquired Atlantic Fasteners Inc., a mainstay in the structural industry with 36 years of history manufacturing structural bolts and distributing standard and specialty fasteners. The purchase will better serve the needs of Würth Industry’s customers in the construction and structural markets by providing end-to-end distribution and manufacturing support and will deepen their geographic footprint in the mid-Atlantic region.
Atlantic Fasteners will join Würth’s new construction services business division, Würth Construction Services. This acquisition fits into Würth Industry’s strategy to provide expert supply chain solutions of structural fasteners, safety, and MRO products. It also complements Würth Industry’s strength in the construction market as the premier distributor of structural products for fabricators, erectors, and the metal building industry.
“Through this acquisition, we gain not only new product and service offerings for our customers, but also the amazing personnel and talent of Atlantic Fasteners,” said Dan Hill, CEO for Würth Industry North America, “Würth Industry has strong growth targets, both organically and through key acquisitions, and we continue to grow with businesses and teams who can support and enhance the expansion of our construction services to offer better supply chain solutions and cost savings for erectors and fabricators across North America.”
The acquisition of Atlantic Fasteners supplies Würth with new manufacturing capabilities that increase their ability to serve customers and offer competitive lead times on a range of end to end structural products. Atlantic Fasteners, together with Würth House of Threads, Weinstock Bros., and Würth Action Bolt and Tool, as Würth Construction Services, will provide expanded services to our structural customers across the U.S., Mexico, Canada, and Brazil.
“Atlantic Fastener adds to our capacity and geographic presence to better service our customers, said Eric Wilk, VP, East Region, Würth Industry North America. “Adding the capability to manufacture anchor bolts to our service offerings increases the capacity in which we can support our structural and construction customers. Serving projects end to end and offering competitive lead times make us a powerhouse for our partners.”
Würth’s new business division, Würth Construction Services, comprised of Würth companies Weinstock Bros., Würth House of Threads, Würth Action Bolt and Tool, and Atlantic Fasteners, is backed by nearly 230 years of service to the construction industry. The division’s companies will operate on a shared system platform for optimal inventory visibility across multiple locations, which will offer improved service to regional and national customers.
“We are excited to partner with Würth because it not only maintains Atlantic Fasteners’ history of outstanding quality and successful partnerships, but also enhances available offerings to our customers,” said Bill Davis, owner and CEO, Atlantic Fasteners. “Customers will continue to receive the same high-quality products and support that they are used to. With the support of a global company, they will have greater resources and inventory expansion. The acquisition is the best choice for both our customers and employees, as joining the Würth family will equate to business growth.”
The new division will provide structural fastener components, inventory management, engineering support, kitting solutions, quality assurance, MRO and tooling, and PPE solutions for erectors, fabricators, contractors, and beyond to increase efficiency and lower cost. The new division will use its multiple locations across the U.S. to be the premier supply chain solutions provider to the construction industry.
