sonfast's team


My passion is uncovering needs of my customers and prospects through nurtured relationships. Those relationships are furthered through dedicated service and personal attention. Selling our products is the bonus produced by those relationships.

Sonfast was started by my parents, Richard and Debby Pappy in 1979. We started as a fastener house and since have evolved into a full service supplier offering hundreds of different products and the highest level of service in our industry. While my father’s legacy still exists, the company has a new face and a new mission. While we still are “Dedicated to Quality”, we offer a world class experience to our customers and we’re honored and humbled to do so.
