Hardware Specialty Offers Complete Shipbuilding Fastener And Hardware Line

- Catalog Available Hardware Specialty Company, Inc., a 53-year-old hardware fastener distributor firm based in Long Island City, N.Y., has been increasingly committed to meeting the demands of the shipbuilding industry.

Their Ships Division is currently committed to more than doubling their already impressive inventory levels and adding more qualified technical people to their seasoned veteran sales staff in order to meet the surging demand for off-the-shelf availability of MIL-B-857 and MILS- 1222 fasteners, supplied with required certification.

Division manager Jim Lewis, formerly the company's director of quality control, attributes much of their current high visibility in the military marine industry to their history of supplying high quality certified fasteners as an approved source to public service utility firms throughout the nation and to the nuclear plant construction engineering firms that wrote the specs.

Strict adherence to stringent quality control enabled the company to qualify as an approved source for several major East Coast shipbuilding firms engaged in new construction, maintenance and repair for the U.S. Navy.

Since 1960, the firm has been concentrating on the supply of military specification fasteners and hardware to the aerospace and defense instrumentation industries, and the rising demand for the Ships Division's capabilities is not all that surprising.

The management has corn- mitted the resources of the company to keep pace with the increasing demand.

The company is presently serving many of the leading West and Gulf Coast shipyards and welcomes the opportunity to assist buyers with even minimal quantity needs.
