LindFast Solutions Group acquires Fasteners and Fittings
LindFast Solutions Group (LSG), Blaine, MN, USA, a leading master distributor of specialty fasteners in North America, recently announced the completion of its purchase of Toronto, Ontario, Canada-based Fasteners and Fittings, Inc. (F&F). Under the leadership of President Ted Robinson and his team, F&F has garnered a well-respected reputation in the marketplace over its 45 year history. The combination of LSG and F&F will enhance and expand both companies’ already significant capabilities in Canada.
“F&F shares the same relentless focus on meeting customer needs as LSG,” said LindFast CEO Bill Niketas. “We are excited for the opportunity to combine forces and expand our collective capabilities to better serve our customers. I am confident F&F will be a great addition to our team, and together we will continue to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations.”
Similar to LindFast, Fasteners and Fittings has a market-leading position in imperial, metric and stainless steel fasteners. The potent combination of F&F’s market position and LSG’s in Canada, along with LSG’s strong supply chain capabilities, will be a significant benefit for both companies’ customers, suppliers, employees and others. As with other recent LindFast acquisitions, very little change is expected on the customer-facing parts of the business in the near term. LSG’s goal is to maintain the strong Fasteners and Fittings brand name in the market. Maintaining its current policies/infrastructure, F&F will continue normal operations out of its two state-of-the-art sites in Toronto and Calgary for the foreseeable future. LSG also has two facilities in the Toronto area, with another in Montreal. With a new total of five branches in the Canadian market and 13 more in the USA, LSG’s new footprint will allow it to continue to improve its high fill rates and short lead times.
