72 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK WÜRTH REVCAR 9500 Burge Ave, North Chesterfield, VA 23237 TEL 804-743-9493 EMAIL WEB WÜRTH REVCAR FASTENERS CELEBRATES 50th ANNIVERSARY Würth Revcar Fasteners, Inc. is celebrating its 50th anniversary as a leading distributor of fasteners, industrial components and vendor-managed inventory. Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) benefit from our completely transparent, data-driven vendor managed inventory program of their fasteners and industrial components with Revcar. On March 10 1969, Revcar, a regional fastener supply store, was founded by Jim Revercomb, Sr. and Jack Carter in Roanoke, Va. A couple of years into the venture, Carter left and Revercomb took over the entirety of the growing business. Looking to expand throughout Virginia, Revcar cultivated a customer base north and east of Roanoke. They opened another branch in Richmond, Va. in 1983 to better serve these customers. Just five years later, it was recognized as a master distributor by top proprietary lines like ESNA, Greer, Tinnerman, Huck, Heyco, and others. During this time, Revcar began its foray into vendormanaged inventory, contracting with OEMs to provide their fasteners. In 1996, Würth, another family-owned company from Germany that was looking to establish a presence in the United States, purchased Revcar. With Würth’s name associated with Revcar, the company began to acquire global customers. Würth Revcar’s growth and expansion continued. Today, it has six full-service branch locations in the Mid- Atlantic and Northeast and 180 employees. During the past five decades, Würth Revcar has built a tradition of excellence in providing superior customer service to its customers in almost every industry, including heavy equipment, transportation, agriculture, fitness, recreation, lawn/garden, and the military. “I am extremely proud of Würth Revcar’s culture and commitment to upholding the company’s strong reputation and high standards for service excellence,” Managing Director Chapman Revercomb said. “Our dedicated and loyal employees, customers and suppliers have all contributed to our continued success. I am incredibly grateful.” Looking ahead, to meet the needs of ever-evolving manufacturing industry, Würth Revcar is upgrading various warehousing systems and launching a new state-of-the-art quality program. “For 50 years, Würth Revcar has provided exceptional fastener and inventory solutions that help our customers meet the needs of an ever-changing marketplace,” said Managing Director Jeff Schmitt. “We are continually evolving to meet the needs of our customers. Today, we’re well positioned to deliver the speed, service and scalability required for effective distribution.” REVCAR FASTENERS SHOWCASED PRODUCTS AND EXPERTISE AT TRADESHOWS IN THE 1970S & 80S.
