56 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK Martin Fastening Solutions, a subsidiary of Martin Inc., announced as of September 3rd, the acquisition of Capital Bolt & Screw (CB&S), headquartered in Jackson, Mississippi. CB&S was founded in 1963 and has grown into one of Mississippi’s oldest and diverse privately held distributors in the south. Jerry Gibson, President of CB&S, purchased the company in 1981 and has grown it into a successful OEM fastening distributor with services that include vendor managed inventory (VMI), 3PL services for international customers and integrated services. “For 40 years, CB&S has held true to our core value of appreciating customer relationships and operating all aspects of our business with the utmost integrity,” said Jerry. “When we decided to sell CB&S, we wanted to ensure our customers would continue to receive that same level of outstanding service. We’ve found that with Martin.” continued on next page...

THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK 57 ...continued from previous page In 1997, Martin added the Fastening Solutions line of business to its operations with headquarters in Jackson, Tennessee. “We’ve invested heavily in our OEM/Fastening Solutions business unit over the last five years and established a foundation we can build on,” said Douglas Ruggles, co-owner of Martin Inc. and President, Martin Fastening. “The next step in our evolution has been to look for the right distributor to join our current business and help us expand our OEM fastener footprint and customer base. I knew CB&S was a great fit from the start. Their core values and ours line up seamlessly. We cannot be happier to have the entire CB&S Team become part of the Martin Team and to offer our complete portfolio of products and services to their customers to help them operate better.” Capital Bolt & Screw is the fourth acquisition for Martin in the past two years.
