Operating out of a station wagon, Robert "Bob" Collie, Sr., used skills and lessons learned from his years of service in the United States Navy to begin distributing fasteners in Memphis, Tennessee. With an emphasis on providing quality products with superior service, Bob worked his way towards purchasing his first warehouse in 1964.

As business grew, so did the inventory. Requiring a larger space to stock products, Bob purchased Memphis' original post office builiding in 1986. Bob's sons, Bob Jr. and Dave, continued the growth of Active Bolt & Screw by adding more warehousing to the current building in 1990, increasing the total size of the facility to 35,000 square feet.

Active Bolt & Screw currently employs fifteen people, including a sales team with over one hundred years combined experience in fastener distribution. Ready to help you today!
