In July of 2013, Echo Group created a new division to help support our valued customers, Echo Fasteners. We identified an opportunity to provide a "Single Source" vendor to simplify our customers Fastener and Harware purchases. Echo Fasteners product and services offering encompasses all trades including electrical, Mechanical, General Contracting, Manufacturing, Food Processing and more. By partnering with some of the top vendors in the industry, we set out to provide fasteners, tools, accessories, and specialty items that are unique to Echo. Today we have expanded our core fastener items to all of our locations, and there are Echo Fasteners Specialist in every region to ensure we have the products and solutions your jobsite or facility needs.
We look foward to the opportunity to grow together.
Brighton-Best traces its history to a Cincinnati storefront factory, which opened in 1925 as Brighton Screw Co. Best Socket Screw started in business in New York, N.Y. in 1965 and was located at 3 Howard Street in what is currently known as the SoHo district of New York City. The founders, Mr. Stan Sevell and Mr. Perry Rosenstein, both had extensive experience in the distribution of fastener products both locally and nationwide. In 1971, the two entrepreneurs purchased the assets of Brighton Socket Screw Manufacturing, a quality manufacturer of Socket Screw products in Cincinnati, Ohio.
By joining the two companies together, Mr. Sevell and Mr. Rosenstein created Brighton-Best Socket Mfg. Inc., a company that would ultimately become a major supplier of socket screw products in the United States. By 1975, Brighton-Best had opened 12 warehouse distribution centers throughout the US and was looking for expansion opportunities abroad. The first foreign expansion came in Toronto, Canada and the opening of four other warehouses in Canada quickly followed suit. Over the next 20 years, Brighton-Best Socket Screw continued to open distribution centers in the USA, UK, Brazil, New Zealand, and Australia. Brighton-Best is currently located in 31 locations in 6 countries and supplies over 7,000 distributors throughout the world.
On January 2, 2008, Brighton-Best Socket Screw Mfg. was bought by a consortium of investors from Taiwan headed by Mr. Robert Shieh, President of Ta Chen International, Inc. (www.tachen.com). In 1986, Mr. Shieh founded Ta Chen International, Inc., a dominant supplier of valves, pipe, bar, coil, sheet and flat plate in Stainless Steel and other Non Ferrous materials. Ta Chen has distribution warehouses in 8 major industrial markets in the United States with corporate headquarters located in Long Beach, California. The newly formed company, Brighton-Best International, Inc. (BBI), offers new products, more extensive inventory, world class service, quality products, and a new 24 hr. online web ordering web site.
www.BrightonBest.com gives the customer the opportunity to check stock, receive instant quotations, place orders, monitor order status and access Material Certification reports all without having to dial a single number or wait on hold. In 2013, BBI acquired the Porteous Fastener Company (PFC), an industry leader in fastener master distribution, headquartered in California. The acquisition combines the strengths and diversities of the two largest fastener master- distributors in the global fastener industry. In addition to expanding our distribution footprint to 34 locations worldwide, the synergies created in scale and product scope will only strengthen BBI’s already formidable value proposition in the global distribution channel.
All the employees of Brighton-Best International, Inc. look forward to the challenges of the future and hope through our dedication to quality products and superior service, Brighton-Best will be your first call when it comes to fasteners.
