A&M opened its doors in 1978 with a 1,200 square foot building. Two moves and 18 years later, the company is housed in a 10,000 sq. foot building owned by president Jim Markins. Unlike many other fastener houses, A&M is not a boutique offering a narrow range of products. We are a full service operation with a vast assortment of items.
