Edison, NJ, September 11, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Starborn® Industries, a leading manufacturer and international distributor of premium fastener products, has introduced a new small retail pack program for two well-known ITW Buildex® products: Tapcon® concrete anchors and E-Z Ancor® self-drilling drywall anchors. Previously, small retail packs of Tapcon and E-Z Ancor products were available only through big-box retailers. With this new program, Starborn has expanded upon the company’s decades of experience distributing Buildex products in order to make small packs of Tapcon and E-Z Ancor products available for the first time in Starborn’s primary market channel - professionally oriented building supply stores.
Tapcon and E-Z Ancor are original patented ITW Buildex products that each created and defined new product categories when they were first created. Since that time, many lower quality imported versions of these products have appeared on the market, but with little success. Professional builders know and trust the ITW Buildex brand and understand that when it comes to high performance, quality manufacturing is essential. ITW Buildex has the unique technical expertise required to make these products and continues to manufacture them solely in the USA to ensure the highest quality standards.
Starborn products are marketed nationally and internationally through an extensive network of building material distributors. Additionally the company has drop shipment agreements with most retail co-ops, including LMC, ENAP, Ace and Truserve. According to Starborn VP of Sales, Larry Crossley, “Standard commercial packs of these essential ITW Buildex items are sold in 100 piece packages. Lumberyards need to either sell whole boxes or break them and sell piecemeal over the counter. Small quantities are needed on a regular basis to finish jobs or for small installations. Our new packs fill a void for stores where selling loose pieces is no longer an option. Plus, it enables the stores that focus on professionals to compete fairly with the big-box retailers.” The Starborn line of Tapcon and E-Z Ancor products is available in both small blister packs and medium-sized kit boxes.
Starborn is proud of its long and successful association with ITW Buildex, and looks forward to growing this partnership while servicing the important market of professionally oriented building materials suppliers, where quality and reliability are key.
