Brighton-Best International: Your Industrial Supply Channel
More than Just Fasteners – Now Your Industrial Supply Channel
Brighton-Best, who has been the international leader of the fastener supply industry for over ten years, is now on track to become not just a fastener supply house, but an industrial supply channel and informational leader for all things industrial.
While Brighton remains committed to the fastener market, continuing to expand offerings on stainless products, including the 410 stainless screws, and adding a new line of weld fasteners, we saw the need to open up new markets and revenue channels to our distributors. The benefits will not only come through reduced ownership costs, but the expertise of industrial products as well as fasteners, and the ability to bundle both lines of products into one prepaid shipment. Chuck Halpin, National Accounts Manager, commented, “Never before has a Fastener Distributor been able to combine so many products and expertise across so many industrial fields into one channel.”
Over the past two years, Brighton has added not one, but three new brands to their offerings starting with Proferred and most recently acquiring Koala Nails and the exclusive Ironclad Performance Wear.
The Proferred brand line of products includes a full line of professional hand tools, manufactured in Taiwan, where manufacturers have access to the highest quality steels and have a high level of control over the manufacturing processes. The Proferred brand provides the best quality and most innovative hand tool products at the lowest cost, and has recently added Proferred Safety Supplies (PPE) and consumables such as gloves, cable ties, tape and glue, all in stock and ready for immediate delivery.
Most recently, the acquisition of Ironclad Performance Wear has allowed Brighton to expand into the safety market in a whole new way. Ironclad Gloves are the Industry leaders with more than 100 task-specific, high-quality PPE gloves covering cut, impact, cold, heat, water, abrasion, grip, dexterity, and more. New technologies, materials, and innovations for harsh working environments are backed by scientific research and certifications. “This is the finest line of gloves available on the market today,” explains Steve Andrasik, VP of Sales for Brighton-Best and Ironclad.
As the glove brand of the Industrial Athlete™, and a known name in the oil & gas extraction, automotive, police, fire, first-responder, and military industries; Ironclad is the go to source for most industry’s toughest hand safety challenges. And with images, sell sheets, a brand new catalog, and other customizable marketing resources available Brighton is not just offering a product to sell, but is moving into a position of being the informational leaders on the products they offer.
Jun Xu, Brighton President says: “There is no, stay the course, road to prosperity. As we move forward we will be defined by the opportunities we bring to our distributors and our ability to strengthen our distribution channel.”
So why Brighton? With the largest and most diverse fastener inventory in the world, a complete line of industrial products and consumables, trained sales team members, aggressive and competitive pricing, and 20+ national warehouses stocked with ample inventory for next day service to all major population centers; Brighton-Best can provide you with growth opportunity and new revenue channels with minimal capital investment.
