ISSCO Once Operated Business from Kansas City's Caves

image

ISSCO INC.'s location history is very different, in the fact that not many companies can say they have operated from a cave! As a Kansas City, family-owned business, ISSCO hasn't always been operating from their current facility in Lee's Summit. Here's a little about the company's background, and shares the story about how they operated from Kansas City's Carefree Industrial Park "Caves." 

ISSCO, Inc. was founded by the current CEO Joe L. Davis Jr. in the basement of his Independence home. Joe was in the fastener distribution business for years, but in 1974 he decided to open his own company. ISSCO was established with one goal in mind: efficiently and successfully servicing our customers. We’ve spent years perfecting the distribution of quality fasteners including bolts, nuts, screws, sockets and much more. Our product lines and inventory levels will continue to reflect our commitment to customers throughout the Midwest. 40+ years later and ISSCO continues to build successful customer relationships with that same goal in mind.
