Our Story

Nifast Corporation was founded in 1987 as part of the Nissho Iwai Group. In our early stages, acting as a logistics provider, Nifast was supplying Japanese made fasteners to Japanese OEM’s and their tier suppliers in the United States.

Over the years Nifast has recognized the need to increase their value in the supply chain and transformed their footprint into a global supply chain solution provider with strategically placed global facilities to optimize not only competitive quality sourcing but also comprehensive JIT delivery services from our facilities located nearby some of our major customers.

From our modest start of being a US based fastener distributor, Nifast has evolved into a global supply chain solution provider with 13 facilities in 7 countries.

Utilizing the resources and global knowledge of our parent company, Metal One, a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corporation and Sojitz Corporation, Nifast has developed a world class global supply base.

Our global sourcing and supply chain management expertise allows our customers to remain efficient and competitive in today’s global market place.

Over time the competitive landscape has changed for Nifast and we have evolved and improved accordingly. Our focus however has never changed.
