Fastenal Co, the leading multinational engaged in the business of wholesale, manufacturing and retail distribution of industrial and construction supplies chose Italy to place its first office as regional base for the southern Europe area. Currently, Fastenal employs 10 people in Italy and plans to grow rapidly with a new forthcoming opening by this Year. After the first successful launch in Florence, accelerated growth and demand enabled Fastenal to further expand its operations in Rome and possibly Northern Italy.
Fastenal continues to expand its operations and grow within Europe, servicing large global corporations in various industries. Italy is and will continue to be an important market for Fastenals growth in Europe (Mr. Luigi Porco, Regional Manager of Fastenal).
Invitalia has been supported Fastenal in all aspects of introducing and opening up their first facility in Italy. An efficient follow-up has been done in order to support the company in their first years of activities and in their expansion plan throughout Italy.
Fastenal employs today over 18.000 employees worldwide with a total turnover of 3,7 billion $ in 2014.
