Birmingham Fastener expands into Mexico

The Alabama-based company will open a facility in Querétaro City

Birmingham Fastener, a manufacturer and distributor of specialty fasteners, is opening its first facility outside the U.S. on March 21, 2024.

Birmingham Fastener is expanding into Mexico with the opening of a facility in Querétaro City tomorrow. The manufacturer and distributor of specialty fasteners states the new facility will help commercial, construction and aerospace projects in Mexico localize their supply chain and access inventory quicker.

Founded in Birmingham in 1980 by Howard Tinney, Birmingham Fastener has continued to grow and diversify, with its own manufacturing division opened in 1984, an expansion into Texas in 1991, adding subsidiaries like Alabama Aerospace in 1995 and ProSouth Fastener in Florida in 2005 and opening its in-house lab to test its products in 2015. 

“We are excited about Mexico being our first location outside of the U.S.,” said Brad Tinney, president and CEO of Birmingham Fastener. “The business and growth environment in Mexico makes it the perfect place to locate.”

Commercial and Aerospace Supply de Mexico S. de R.L de C.V. (CASM) will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of Birmingham Fastener, with support from Alabama Aerospace, Birmingham Fastener’s aerospace and defense branch located in Huntsville. CASM will supply both commercial and aerospace parts to the manufacturing, construction and maintenance, repair and operations sectors in Mexico.  

Saúl Pedraza will lead the CASM team. He has 19 years of fastener experience and most recently served as Birmingham Fastener’s outside representative in Mexico.
