Press release date: January 29, 2014

Supplies for Racing and Industry, Inc. (SRI) announced today that they have become a distributor of Bessey Tools North America products, which further expands SRI’s current inventory of over 15,000 unique items. The North Carolina-based SRI is well-known for its vast offering of shop supplies, such as nuts, bolts, rivets, adhesives, abrasives, and auto body supplies, yet its offering of hand tools is ever-growing.

“When I acquired SRI in 2002, I envisioned a company that would complement my existing business, Stock Car Steel (and Aluminum, Inc.). The guys who are purchasing steel and aluminum from Stock Car Steel are also in need of everything SRI has to offer, like grinding discs and cutting tools. Stock Car Steel and SRI’s singular location allows our two companies to become a one-stop-shop.Going along with that same concept, it only makes sense for SRI to carry Bessey tools in the warehouse, because steel fabricators are always in need of quality clamping products to keep their work and workspace secure. Between SRI and Bessey North America, we can offer superior products at highly competitive pricing for our hardworking customers,” says SRI owner/president Greg Fornelli.

SRI plans on offering a full line of Bessey products, which includes vices, clamps, cutting tools, and much more.
