Our Facility

Competitive Prices

C&S Fasteners is a direct importer of over 90% of what we sell which allows us to offer wholesale distribution at the lowest pricing by eliminating multiple mark ups. We are uniquely qualified to provide our clients with the best value in the market.

Superior Customer Service

C&S Fasteners is a family owned business. We have become one of the largest importers of stainless steel fasteners in the country because we still treat our customers with the same original family philosophy to make our customers more than a client; we make them our friends and business partners.

Product Availability

C&S Fasteners’ Tampa, FL, warehouse is a 15,000 square foot and 30 foot to ceiling facility. We stock millions of fasteners in over 10,000 different products. Our local inventory has many color options in stock every day. Customers needing a specific color can expect an average turnaround time of 2 to 3 weeks. Stock and release can be used on special colors so there is no delay in shipping time.

We consolidate multiple shipments from overseas so we do not have to wait until we get full containers to ship the product once production is finished. C&S Fasteners has several major relationships here in our own backyard to ensure you never run out of fasteners. We understand that out-of-stocks could cause our clients to stop production or suffer a loss in revenue.

Vast Array of Products

C&S Fasteners carries full product lines for multiple industries. We work directly with our manufacturers to produce products to our tested specifications or the customers exact requirements.

We offer many different types of coatings depending on the application and environment. We utilize only the best coaters from all over the world giving us the ability to customize the coating for your specific environment or application of our products.
