OUR SERVICES SAVE YOU TIME & MONEY
Our consultative and relational approach wasn’t born out of an effort to maximize revenue but from our effort to build lasting and genuine relationships with each of our clients. As a small, family-owned business in South Carolina, we see all of our partnerships as far more than just buying and selling. Truly interested in making businesses better from the ground up, we learn everything about our clients’ businesses: what works, what doesn’t work, their culture, etc.
When we come in to provide our services, we extend our entire network as a solution for our clients. That means, if we notice an element of the manufacturing process that can be improved or costs that can be reduced with products or services we don’t offer, we won’t hesitate to connect our clients with someone in our vast network that can get the job done. Why? Because what goes around, comes around and we know it first-hand.

And learn more about how Sonfast’s solutions can streamline your business.
VENDOR MANAGED INVENTORY
Sonfast specializes in VMI programs that eliminate excess inventory and spending waste. A VMI agreement with Sonfast will streamline the inventory flow process, while reducing both risk and cost. We are experienced in SAP and EDI environments and poised to adapt to any existing supply chain requirements. Sonfast can provide lot traceable, bagged inventory to also simplify inventory control risk. Our VMI programs make complete strategic sense when considering how to improve your purchasing processes.
JUST IN TIME
Sonfast has always thrived on the business model of JUST IN TIME delivery. If a VMI is not the route a customer chooses to go, Sonfast offers JIT supply by stocking items on a long term forecast or blanket purchase order. This makes it easier for both our customers and us, to respond to inventory fluctiation in a very short amount of time. Sonfast is proactive in planning and purchasing for its JIT partnerships and we don’t want you to have to worry about anything. When you’ve got Sonfast, your problems are solved before they show up!
All of Sonfast services are value added incentives to do business with us. Logistics is another way Sonfast can offer a competitive edge on what our customers spend. Sonfast will negotiate prepaid freight to any location on the East coast, based on the dollar value spent. We want to make our customers comfortable with doing business with us by taking as much off their collective plate as we can.
JOB SITE DELIVERY
How many times have you left something at the shop or forgot to order a specific item? Regardless of whether it’s a safety item, a fastener, a tool, etc., the cost of having your work stop to leave a job site and buy those items at a hardware store cuts into your profits. Sonfast, on an as needed basis, can deliver those goods straight to your job site. If your job site is within 50 miles of either of Sonfast’s locations, we’ll bring it to you. Don’t lose time and money on the little things. Let Sonfast give you peace of mind on your job sites.
APPLICATIONS ENGINEERING SUPPORT
Sonfast wants to make everything easier for our customers. This comes down to all facets of our customers’ processes. Most specifically, we offer engineering support and application solutions on the FRONT END of design, R & D, and planning. We will look at your design, per application, and standardize specialty items, consolidate the number of parts used in a given product. Through standardization of hardware and reduction in line items in a bill of materials, we can offer more competitive sourcing strategies and ultimately pricing.
JOB SITE DELIVERY
Sometimes you don’t have the space on your floor to hold inventory for your contracting vans and trucks. Sonfast is already holding your inventory and we can pre-pack by check list for each of your vehicles. Your workers can come to our door and get loaded up for the week or just for the job.

Reputation is our Revenue
"I work for a Tier 1 suppler to BMW. BMW is producing at record numbers and supplying parts on a consistent basis is challenging. Sonfast is one of my suppliers and they provide excellent product quality and customer service. BMW often requires additional parts on a very short notice and Sonfast is one of the few suppliers that are always able to accommodate a drop-in order without any issues. I would be most happy if all my suppliers provided the same service and quality parts as Sonfast does."
- K. LeBlanc - DRÄXLMAIER Group
"Paul and the Sonfast team have always been supportive of my engineering team. They are good to work with and always try to offer solutions for any fastening issues that occur in our design process. As a whole, they are thorough and offer excellent customer support."
- J. Hazel - Techtronic Industries Power Equipment
"Sonfast is a pleasure to work with. Always ships on time and ready to help whenever we are in critical mode and need more parts."
- S. Sudduth - DRÄXLMAIER Automotive
"Sonfast is more than a supplier, they are a partner and always willing to go over and beyond. On new projects Sonfast team will come in and sit with the design team to review fasteners and suggest what to use and also review all of our current portfolio to make sure we do not add extra inventory. Helping to ensure we use more common lower cost components and not special higher cost fasteners is an everyday example of Sonfast exceeding expectations. Helping with cost, functionality, inventory control, small things that keep us competitive in the market place. Thanks Sonfast Team."
- J. Wiggins - Techtronic Industries Power Equipment
"We started out with Sonfast buying a high volume of one particular screw. Sonfast was hands down the most competitive price, but even more importantly their ability to manage our inventory. This kept us a steady supply of components. We recently added three more high volume precision components for a high end automotive customer. Many of these parts have long lead times, so it is crucial to have a supplier you can count on to manage inventory and supply chain. On top of their commitment to maintain supplies, the personal service and relationship that we have developed with the Sonfast crew is hands down on of the best."
