About Fasco

Fasco has evolved from its humble beginnings as a regional nut and bolt distributor nearly forty years ago. Today Fasco is a comprehensive fastener and component supplier to OEM customers located on five continents. Consistent growth has been achieved through our commitment and dedication to satisfying customers on all levels.

Fasco provides custom “made-to-print” fasteners as well as standard industrial fasteners. Our broad product offering makes Fasco a convenient “one stop shop” for any customer’s assembly requirements. From our home base located in Alsip, Ill., a suburb of Chicago, we manage parts (and programs) produced by our supply chain partners in Asia and North America, reaching customers all around the globe.

Fasco is focused on our customers’ demand for world-class quality—by any measure. Our quality management system is up-to-date with the achievement of ISO-9001:2015 certification. We offer technical support and value engineering that produce real cost savings. This benefits both our customers’ bottom line and Fasco’s future growth.

Fasco’s most important asset is our dedicated team of employees. We are a small company with big ambition, combining experience and wisdom with youthful vigor and forward thinking. Our customers appreciate honesty and responsiveness in the way we care for their fastener requirements. Our goal is to treat you in the same manner.
