BRILLION- Endries International has acquired an Alabama-based fastener supplier, the company announced.
Endries, a Brillion fastener distributor, purchased Store fastenersa 38-year-old company based in Montgomery, Alabama.
Tim Wilsford started Store Room Fasteners from a storage shed in Montgomery in 1984. Nearly 40 years later, Store Room Fasteners operates three facilities in Alabama (Montgomery, Opelika and Selma) and also has locations in LaGrange, in Georgia and Nuevo Laredo, Mexico.
Endries International began in the basement of Bob and Patricia Endries’ Brillion home in 1970. In 2004, their son Steve Endries took over the business, which now operates 11 national and international distribution centers from its headquarters of Wisconsin.

Store Room Fasteners will continue to operate on its current system as a subsidiary of Endries, according to a press release. Wilsford will remain with the company in a leadership position overseeing Store Room Fasteners’ 60 employees.
“Tim has built an organization that reflects what Endries was and is,” Endries President Steve Endries said in the statement. “The methodology and approach followed by both companies is very consistent. We look forward to working with our new team members to improve our overall offerings to the market.”
It is the second major purchase this year for Endries, which also acquired Old Dominion Fasteners in April.
