B. Finder Associates, Inc.

"May 1, 1969 - Bernie Finder started B. Finder Associates,  Inc.  -  April 30, 2019 - B. Finder Associates, Inc. celebrates fifth years in business!!

In 1969, Bernie Finder had already been in the fastener business for twenty four years.  He started BFA as a small, one desk company at his home in Glencoe,  IL.  There were no frills and no guarantees that the business would make it.  But Bernie knew one important thing - he was a great people person.  And as they say, the rest is history!  Mark Finder joined the company in 1973 and over the next several years we built BFA into one of the largest manufacturer's representative agencies in Chicago.  In 1996 Maurizio Furlan joined the company and in 2001 we opened our warehouse with Cecilia Parker as our office manager.

Unfortunately, after a long illness, Bernie passed away on February 9, 1999.

As of 2019, Maurizio, Cecilia and Mark are the core elements of B. Finder Associates, Inc.  We want to take this opportunity to thank our valuable distributors throughout the country for your business and hope to continue serving you for many years to come."

Intercorp Introduces Strong-Point® Razor Fastener

LOS ANGELES, CA -- Intercorp, an importer and master distributor of professional-grade construction fasteners under the Strong-Point® and Strongcon® brands, is pleased to announce their new Strong-Point Razor fastener. This highly engineered product will attach light gauge sheet metal to sheet metal in HVAC applications or any light duty steel attachments.

“Intercorp spent endlesshours of R&D onthis designbecause we wanted to give our customers aproduct that has the potential for very high demand and the engineering to help usersbe more productive and efficient on the job,” said Law Winchester, National Sales Manager. “To do this, we designed a proprietarypoint to pierce light gauge metal quickly and prevent walking for faster engagement. We then equipped our new fastener with finer threads to draw sheets of metal more closely together, forming a tighter connectionto reduce airflow escape in HVAC applications. We believe that users of this fastener are going to be extremely pleased with theoverallperformance of our new Razor Point screw.”

The Strong-Point Razor® screw is available through a network of construction distributors throughout the United States. Call Intercorp for FREE samples at 800-762-2004 or visit www.intercorpusa.com to find a location near you.
