Fastenal Adds SPEEDWRAP Product Line

Fastenal has partnered with Racine, WI-based Speedtech International to offer a new line of hook & loop and specialty fasteners.

RACINE, WI — Speedtech International, Inc., a manufacturer of hook and loop ties, straps and specialty fasteners, is pleased to announce its partnership with Fastenal Company, a industrial distributor. Fastenal, one of the largest MRO Distributors, will carry the SPEEDWRAP brand of hook & loop and specialty fasteners.

With a factory dedicated to the fabrication and distribution of innovative bundling, banding, and cable management products, Speedtech’s niche has historically been hook and loop products. After 20 years of dedication to solving customers’ banding and bundling application problems primarily, Speedtech’s product line has grown into a plethora of highly innovative specialty fasteners. Today, Speedtech’s SPEEDWRAP branded product line features one of the widest offerings of cable management, and material handling products including several new patented items.

Fastenal Company, one of the largest MRO distributors worldwide, ranks Number 12 on Industrial Distribution’s 2015 Big 50 List. Fastenal serves its customers with more than 2,700 stores, 50,000 FAST Solutions vending machines, and online. Fastenal operates 14 distribution centers in North America with additional locations in Asia, Europe, Central and South America, and Africa. SPEEDWRAP’s growing popularity, stellar reputation, and high quality industrial-­grade products led Fastenal to add the SPEEDWRAP Brand of Products for their quality-­conscious customers.

Steve Pope, Speedtech’s Vice President of Sales, asserts, “We are pleased to partner with Fastenal and to offer our customers multichannel acquisition of SPEEDWRAP products. The MRO channel remains a top priority for Speedtech. By partnering with Fastenal, customers can now pick up our product at local Fastenal branches, have our product delivered to their dock in one of the infamous Fastenal pickup trucks, or have the products managed as part of their stock and bin program inside their warehouse or factory. We are thrilled to be associated with such a fine distributor!"

Along with the hook & loop products, Fastenal will carry some of the new SPEEDWRAP Specialty Fasteners, including the recently patented, Kwik Bandit line of rubber straps and the versatile Ty-­Up  Pallet Ties.

The SPEEDWRAP brand is offered through Industrial, MRO, Data Communications, Audio, Video, Hardware, and Recreation Distributors Nationwide. SPEEDWRAP products ship from Speedtech’s ISO Registered factory located in Racine, Wisconsin.
