Bob: You need fasteners for everything. Everything and anything you do you need those fasteners. And we love servicing our customers. Anytime I can help them, I want to help them.
I started this business back at the end of 2010 on eBay. I just started listing fasteners.
Prior history of me... I did 25+ years of New York City construction. I have application knowledge and construction knowledge. I did many high-rises, psychiatric wards, hospitals, and we did work in the World Trade Center. Many, many, different types of buildings, and of course, housing, residential, plank jobs, structural steel jobs, and the list goes on. I've been involved in a lot of projects.
Then I created the Albany County Fasteners website after a few years. Basically, because I couldn't depend on ebay. We got a lot of resistance back then and the reason why we got a lot of resistance is because my industry, the fastener industry, really did not want to put fasteners on the internet. We were basically disrupting the industry and we were not liked that much. But they all came around in due time because we just kept listing more and more fasteners.
When I started this journey, it was not easy. I can't tell you how many times my wife said "go get a job" and I said "no". I just continued and continued and then turned this into a multi-million dollar business over the years. But it did take a lot of work.
We were in that two-car garage for about two years. We then moved from that 2-car garage into a 1,300 square foot facility. And then we outgrew that within the next couple of years. Then from there we moved into 5,000 square feet and a year after that we took another 5,000 square feet, into 10,000 square feet, and we're in about 10,000 square feet today. As we developed the business I brought on Fasteners 101, which is our youtube channel, which gets amazing feedback from you guys. We love putting those videos together.
Our website is constantly being updated. At the same time, all the information that we put on the site is for you when you have a question. We love when you guys ask us questions so we can give you answers to your projects for the proper fastener to use for your project.
During the course of time, I've picked up a lot of great employees through the years. As we grew we added more people. More so in the last couple of years. But there are some great great people in my company. They do a great job. My IT department, we'll show you our crew there, to our customer service who take care of our customers, to our purchasing department, our receiving department, to the order processing department and our whole warehouse, to QC [Quality Control], to our inventory specialist who handles our inventory and makes sure it's right and accurate, to our machine department which does all the packaging, and let's not forget our shipping department. They all just come together and force ahead. I'm very grateful to these people, the great job that they do, because I'm not really an easy boss, as they tell me. But that's okay. That's what bosses do. And of course I can't forget my warehouse manager. She's awesome. She does an amazing job. My hats off to her. We also just added two sales guys. A sales manager and our sales guy that works with our manager to service our local customers.
We have a couple of trucks on the road that can service these local clients. And of course we have our van. So we have three vehicles servicing local clientele. So if you're a local business and need help with fasteners, please call us and we will route you to the right person. Of course, this is what we call a family business, so my wife who handles accounts receivable is involved. She handles receiving of the accounts. And my son is involved, who handles purchasing and general management of the business.
We're also part of cars and coffee and there's many other good causes that we support. We do support Rutgers University, the science department - robotics department. Among a few other things we donate to, to facilitate helping them out. By that we provide parts to them.
We do what we do best and we're just gonna keep expanding our catalogue. You're gonna see more and more parts coming on to the catalog. It's gonna get very large in the next two years. We just added safety clothing apparel. It's just gonna keep going.
I'm very grateful for this business, it's an amazing journey for me. It's done well for my family. We have a lot further to go and anything that we can do to service you, we'd love to hear from you. Drop us a note below, let us know how we're doing. If you're currently a customer, thank you for your business, and we look forward to continuing our business with you.
