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.
