110 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK ALBANY STEEL CELEBRATING 100 YEARS OF SUPERIOR PRODUCTS AND SERVICE from page 28 In the 1950’s, Al recognized the increasing demand for threaded fasteners. At the time, although the market for domestic fasteners was showing tremendous growth, many fastener manufacturers went to market through selective, or even exclusive, distributorships. In 1952, Lebovitz Bros. purchased the assets and liabilities of one such distributor, Albany Steel & Brass Corporation. Albany was Parker- Kalon’s chief representative in the Chicago area, but had fallen upon hard times due to poor cash flow. In the days when Parker-Kalon manufactured a large variety of domestic fasteners, such as socket screws, thumbscrews, wing nuts, wing screws and screwnails, Albany was known to stock “every size in the book.” Albany’s current inventory consists of over 25,000 sizes of fasteners ranging from 00 through 2” diameter in various materials. All items are lot traceable, and all products are sold in quantities as requested by the customer. The entire inventory is maintained in two 30,000 square foot warehouses located on Grand Ave. in Chicago. With fourth generation leadership and a management team with over 200 years of experience, Albany Steel & Brass is positioned and prepared to carry on the tradition of furnishing High Quality products and services to the OEM and Construction Trades as it has done for the past 100 years.
