Scorpion - Company Profile

Fasteners Specialties/Scorpion Products was founded in 1975 and initially specialized in fasteners for metal buildings and steel roof deck construction with drywall products added in 1978.

Originally started in a 12'x12' office -warehouse, it has since expanded to our present 30,000 square foot facility located in South Windsor, Connecticut.

With the constantly changing flow of construction materials, we have introduced many new fasteners throughout this catalog. Each is designed to improve your fastening capabilities. Look for the symbol.
