With little more than modest financial resources, an entrepreneurial spirit, and a vision for the future, Howard P. Tinney started Birmingham Fastener & Supply, Inc. in 1980. Under Tinney's leadership the company has flourished and grown into the largest and most diversified fastener supplier in the South. Today, Birmingham Fastener has robust manufacturing operations in Birmingham, Alabama and distribution centers in Alabama, Florida, Texas, Nebraska, Connecticut and Wisconsin. Tinney attributes the company's success to hard work, an honest commitment to customer service and a willingness to face the challenges of time.
"Our capability to manufacture certain special fastener products effectively complements our distribution efforts involving standard inventory items. Obviously, this diversity facilitates our abilities to fill the more difficult orders, and clearly sets us apart from the vast majority of fastener distributors" - Howard Tinney
