Thruway Fasteners Gains Visibility into Supply Chain Performance with Tribridge and Microsoft Dynamics GP


Thruway Fasteners, Inc. is a fastener and “C” class commodity distributor direct to manufacturers, in business since 1958. A value-added service provider specializing in vendor managed inventory and commodity management, Thruway Fasteners has built a successful business around one key element – relationships. The ability to create and maintain strong business relationships with both suppliers and customers is fundamental for the value-added distributor of fasteners, machined parts and additional commodities. Headquartered in North Tonawanda, NY, Thruway Fasteners has 170 employees and manages more than 50,000 items from their seven branch locations in New York, Pennsylvania and Georgia.
