What began decades ago in a small town garage paved the way for STAR Stainless. A foundation built upon hard work, dedication and commitment to those who worked for and within.
In the industry, STAR is known as a “screw company” and STAR is in the “screw business”. In fact, we sell more than just screws; we sell a whole range of fasteners including nuts, washers, cotter pins, threaded rod and bolts. STAR is a wholesaler, since nearly all of our sales are to other screw distributors who, in turn, resell our product to the end users.
STAR specializes in exotic metals: stainless steel, silicon bronze, and brass. We no longer manufacture any of our products. About 80% are imported mainly from Taiwan and Thailand, with the remaining 20% made for us by US, China, India and Japan manufacturers.
Today, STAR operates multiple branches Nationwide.
Besides the branches, we also operate distribution centers in New Jersey, Chicago, Atlanta and in Houston. These centers receive container-loads of foreign and domestic merchandise from our suppliers. They check in the merchandise and reship it to our regional branches.
STAR offers two major things to our customers. First, we stock a large, diversified inventory of sizes. Second, we offer friendly, efficient service. Nearly all of our orders are personally taken, and many customers visit our branches for pick-ups. That’s why friendliness and courtesy to customers over the phone or in person is so important to STAR.
