THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK 89 ABBOTT-INTERFAST CORP. 190 Abbott Drive, Wheeling, IL 60090 TEL 1-800-877-0789 FAX 847-459-4076 EMAIL WEB ABBOTT-INTERFAST: 70 YEARS... AND BY THE WAY...DID YOU KNOW? Most of us were not around in September of 1948 when Martin (Marty) R. Binder incorporated and opened the doors of Abbott-Interfast Corp. (Abbott Screw & Mfg. & Co. back then) to the fastener & OEM community. This year we are celebrating our 70th year of providing solutions for not only fasteners but a variety of products second to none. Over the years, Abbott has secured over 25 patents. Best known to distributors for yellow nylon insert locknuts, in 2017 Abbott began a marketing campaign to market other available products and services. In 2018, we revamped our website, to highlight all the solutions we provide. Our many years of experience is the foundation of our diversity. Over the last 70 years, Abbott has provided innovation, global sourcing, screw machine specials, plastic knobs, inventory management, assemblies, and many more products where we have partners or alliances both domestically and overseas. One such example, The Nationwide Fastener Directory , was born 46 years ago, a byproduct of the fastener industry, it quickly became the “go to” source for hard to find items. The Nationwide Fastener Directory still thrives today, has recently re-invented itself and is now available online at Our newest improvements include innovative search tools and a “virtual book” for those traditionalists who still like to use the 2-volume directory. Made in the USA – Martin Binder strongly believed in manufacturing and it is still a big part of our business. Within our 100,000 square foot family owned facility, we manufacture daily and recently we have begun to add modern day machining with the addition of CNC machines. Abbott is a valuable source who can not only procure product at the most competitive pricing, but one that can back it up by making it in house when something unseen happens. The screw that works like a Tool! SplitStop fasteners is another groundbreaking product created by Abbott. We secured 4 patents on high performance screws which were originally designed to solve OEM issues encountered while driving screws into wood, composite or engineered decking products. Today SplitStop provides the best screw fastening system available and is sold online at , in specialty lumber yards and packaged as private labeled product for some of the top composite manufacturers in the world. Our involvement in the industry is extensive as well. Marty Binder was one of the few originators of the Chicago Bolt, Nut and Screw Association now known as the Mid-West Fastener Association and served as one of the early Presidents. Abbott is one of the very few members to have exhibited at every MWFA trade show ever held and Abbott has had 3 employees serve as President for the MWFA, as well as having staff serving on the Fastener Industry Coalition. As we begin our next 70 years, Abbott continues to re-invent itself with additions like the latest optical inspection systems, additional CNC machines, an upgraded website, a new computer system, along with planned enhancements such as wireless warehousing, bar coding, and of course we will continue our marketing campaign so that we no longer need to say “Did you know?”...because now you do!
