As a leading fastener distributor, we strive to implement better ways to service our customers. We wish to go beyond just giving you what you want: our goal is to make your inventory management and internal processes as simple as possible. We better our company through client feedback, which in turn betters our processes and services. ISSCO was one of the first in the fastener industry to implement a paperless Supply Chain Management process, and we offer beneficial services such as Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI), Kitting, Custom Labeling, Packaging and more.

From a home basement to a large facility in Lee's Summit, MO


ISSCO, Inc. was founded by our 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 our customers throughout the Midwest. 40+ years later and we continue to build successful customer relationships with that same goal.

Why Should You Consider VMI?


Our Vendor Managed Inventory solutions are designed with you in mind. Our goal is to work together to streamline your manufacturing processes. With our VMI services, together we’ll determine an agreed-upon amount of inventory to be stocked on location and at ISSCO. We are committed to ensuring our inventories are reflective of our customer’s historical annual usage. We even offer a Consignment VMI option, which means you pay for the product only after it has been used.

By eliminating the burden of purchasing fasteners on a daily basis and relying on ISSCO for your inventories, you in turn save money cutting less purchase orders, having routine stock-outs or shutdowns. You now have time to concentrate on greater, more progressive projects for your company.

Benefits of Our VMI Services:

  • Enhanced Delivery Performance ensures that your fastening needs are met on time, every time.
  • Consistent Product Flow so your industrial supply inventory stays consistent and fully stocked.
  • On-Site Storerooms to make it easy as possible for you to avoid fastening product stock-outs.
  • Point-of-Use Delivery so all the fastening products and supplies you need are stored at a convenient and consistent location.
  • High Service Levels to ensure the highest level of trust between our industrial suppliers and your inventory needs.
  • Decreased Carrying Costs so you can focus on improving other areas of your company.
