2.0      Introduction

RC Fasteners & Components, Inc. was founded in February 2002 in Phoenix, Arizona. The goal is to create a Component & Fastener Superstore where customers can get standard, off-the-shelf fasteners, such as nuts, bolts, screws, etc., Electronic and Aerospace components, and custom, made-to-print fasteners, all from one company. This eliminates the need for additional vendors, which saves our customers time and money.

Every customer is a priority

In our company, every customer is a priority, no matter how big or small. We strive to always do more than is expected to help handle our customer’s needs. We don't promise more than we can deliver, and we continually look for ways to improve quality and add value to products our customers purchase. We believe if we serve our customers with honesty, integrity, and go the extra mile, we'll earn a customer for life.

It's all about relationships

Our business is all about relationships with our employees, families, customers, suppliers and manufacturers. Building strong relationships is important to us because it allows for individual attention and also the ability to differentiate our customer’s needs. By getting to know our customers and interacting with them, we learn to customize our products and services to what's best suited to meet their demands.
