Leland Industries Celebrates 30 Years of Fastener Manufacturing

Leland Industries Inc. celebrates 30 years of fastener manufacturing. In 1984, Byron Nelson, president and founder of Leland began production in a 2,000-square-foot rented space in Toronto. Beginning with two cold headers and a staff of six, Leland has grown into one of North America’s largest fastener manufacturers, offering a broad line of screws, nuts and bolts for agricultural storage, post frame and metal building construction. Leland was the first manufacturer in the industry to offer powder coating of screws to match panel colors. Leland takes pride in being a domestic manufacturer; the company does not import. All Leland products, from the earliest days were considered green. From melted scrap steel to recycled paper or plastic in our packaging, everything qualifies for LEED points.

In 2012, Leland acquired the equipment from a failed producer, allowing our offering to be expanded to include bolts to ¾ by 6 inches, nuts to 7/8 inch and A325 structural items. Following that, and still expanding, Threadall manufacturing was acquired, once again allowing a product line expansion, now including; U-Bolts, J-Bolts, Anchor Bolts, Up to 4 1/2-inch diameter studs and threaded rod and special shapes to customer specifications.

Leland Industries competes with import products every day, concentrating on quality, delivery and value for money. We are presently adding 50,000 square feet of manufacturing and warehouse space. To provide the best possible service, Leland operates from and additional seven warehouse and branch locations across the USA and Canada.
