Elgin Fastener Group (EFG), a North American provider of system-critical engineered fastening solutions, announced that it has acquired Rockford Fastener, a manufacturer of specialty fasteners well-known for its quality and customer responsiveness.
“The combination of Rockford and EFG creates an exciting opportunity for our company, for our customers, and for our shareholders,” said Brian Nadel, EFG CEO. “The synergies from this move support our core markets and deepen our reach into key distribution channels.”
Rockford Fastener is well-known for delivering quality products across several product categories over their 40-year history. Product diameters range from #4 to 1/-2-inch and lengths up to 5 inches. Markets served include agriculture, transportation, commercial construction, and general industrial end-markets. Rockford is unique in its ability to rapidly quote fasteners and begin production within a 24-hour window for rush jobs.
Nic Orman, from Rockford Fastener said, “My brother Matt and I are excited, for ourselves and our employees, about being part of an organization that will carry Rockford Fastener and the legacy we have all strived to achieve forward.”
Rockford Fastener joins a group of well-known product brands under EFG, including Holbrook Manufacturing, Leland Powell, Northern Wire, Quality Bolt, Chandler Products, Telefast, and Ohio Rod Products.
“Partnering with Rockford emphasizes our focus on distribution and strengthens our core product offering into that channel,” states Joe Shoemaker, VP of Business Development for EFG. “The quality of the organization, and the people, was apparent when meeting with owners Nic and Matt Orman. We are tremendously excited for what this move means for our distribution customers and our ability to serve them more broadly.”
