NEFCO, a partner to the professional construction trades, has completed the acquisition of Jiffy Fastening Systems Inc., headquartered in Lexington, Kentucky. It also serves customers at locations in Louisville, KY, and Cincinnati, OH.
Since its founding in 1967, Jiffy’s aim has been to be the preferred one-stop supplier of tools, fasteners, hardware, and accessories for professional contractors. The company supplies a large breadth of products to mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC contractors throughout Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana.
“Jiffy is one of the best SHARP suppliers in the Kentucky and Ohio market and we are excited to join forces,” said NEFCO President & CEO, Matthew Gelles. “The acquisition of Jiffy furthers our commitment to be the national leader in SHARP products as we continue to execute on our vision to partner with contractors across every job site in America. Through this partnership, NEFCO will expand its presence into the Midwest and service contractors in Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Tennessee, and West Virginia.”
Jiffy has also been a member of the Evergreen Marketing Group, an elite group of independent distributors working in partnership with manufacturers to ensure customers receive the best products, warranties, and pricing, including timely delivery and service.
“Jiffy has been fortunate to have the exceptional leadership of the DeMoss brothers and we are excited to welcome Jeff, Kevin, and Steve DeMoss to the NEFCO family,” added Gelles. “All three brothers will continue to lead the Jiffy business and we look forward to working with them for many years to come.”
“The folks at Jiffy Fastening Systems and Bluegrass Tool Warehouse could not be more excited to join forces with the NEFCO family,” the DeMoss brothers stated. “NEFCO is also a family business with a huge footprint on the east coast, stretching from Maine to Florida. Both families share the same core values of taking care of family, employees who are extended family, and customers who are treated like family. Couple these values with the added bonus of going to market in the same way with the exact same product mix (SHARP) and this is a perfect match.”
Since 1981, NEFCO has been known for its industry expertise, large local inventories, dependable job-site delivery, turnkey engineering services, as well as specialty fabrication and assembly of construction materials.
