Manufacturing Suppliers Ltd (Fortress Fasteners)
Manufacturing Suppliers Ltd (MSL) began business in 1980 as a small operation in New Lynn, Auckland and is now one of New Zealand’s leading fastener suppliers. We have grown dramatically in the past thirty years and now employ over one hundred people who continue our company vision - to meet industry demands for a range of quality fasteners backed by a dependable service.
Now a wholly owned subsidiary of Steel & Tube Holdings Ltd, we take pride in supporting the New Zealand economy, and can now offer a full range of steel solutions in partnership with Steel & Tube.
Our substantial growth since the eighties has included the introduction of 9 branches nationwide. Fortress has developed into a house hold name across many kiwi industries. Our local management means we understand the local market and have the ability to make decisions rapidly and easily. Large enough to meet the demands of any customer, we are still small enough to offer the personal touch.
With our network of fully-stocked branches carrying over 300 million items and 17,000 product lines. This makes us arguably the largest fastening wholesaler in the country. Our new products, creative packaging and merchandising initiatives have also earned us a reputation as industry innovators.
We owe our success to our ability to deliver on time and in full to a wide customer base in manufacturing industries, the building trade and to building supplies merchants in New Zealand.
This, combined with the strength of our own Fortress brand and our exceptional customer service is what makes MSL a market leader.
