It’s been over 65 years since those humble beginnings, and today the former Carlson Stapler and Supply has grown into a corporation employing hundreds of people. Although the name has been simplified to Carlson Systems, LLC, the familiar “CSS” logo has been retained to symbolize Carlson Systems’ strategy to provide the highest quality products along with outstanding service and support to our customers.
Focusing on fastening, packaging and product assembly systems, Carlson Systems’ offices and warehouses serve thousands of customers. A group of problem solvers, we provide ideas and solutions in both the products we offer and the methods we advocate.
With locations spanning an area primarily west of the Mississippi, our people and products are always close to our customers. As a pioneering company and industry leader, we handle the premier product lines in fastening, packaging, product assembly and materials handling - all supported by our network of service and repair technicians.
Mid-Atlantic Fasteners was established out of a garage in Baltimore, MD just after World War II as a Duo-Fast distributor. Most of our early customers were upholstery shops, furniture manufacturers, the bedding industry, and millwork companies. Over the years as our business grew, we began selling competitive lines, which allowed us to expand our customer base into new markets with new customers.
Acquired by Carlson Holdings in 2006, Mid-Atlantic Fasteners delivers the leading brands in the construction and industrial business. We serve our customers from our stores on the east coast, primarily in the Mid-Atlantic region. With emphasis on product assembly systems including nailers, staplers, fasteners and accessories, we serve the needs of industrial and construction customers, and offer industry-leading installation and repair at each of our locations.
