Manufacturer of Quality Fasteners History
A two-man distributor opened for business in a 3,500 sq. foot warehouse on November 1, 1970 in Rosemont, IL. Thus was the start of "The Bright Name in Fasteners." In March of 1971 a small manufacturing plant was bought out and merged into Brico. The merge caused an expansion to 7,000 sq. feet. By summer of 1973, occupying 10,500 sq. feet of adjoining units, and still bursting at the seams, Brico added some additional storage in a neighbor’s unit and started looking for a new home A new building was found in Elmhurst, it had 26,000 sq. feet. After the end of the night shift on a Friday in November, machines were disconnected and the move started. By Monday morning, Brico was in production at its new home. The new building lasted until an addition was added in 1980. The company now occupies almost 40,000 sq. feet, as well as 7,500 in Fort Smith Arkansas.
Long term, good, knowledgeable people have been responsible for the success of the company. In 30 plus years, 19 employees have ended their working career and retired from Brico. Current employment includes 19 with more than ten years of service, and six with more than 20 years of service. Collectively, the current management team has 421 years of fastener experience.
