DFI was established in 1982 by Jess and Roseanne Insler, a husband and wife team who together worked to build a company to rival any of their much larger competitors.
Jess first began in the fasteners industry in 1975 where he set out to become a success in sales – first as an outside sales rep and then later inside in sales and purchasing. Ro joined him in the industry in 1977 to work in the management side of the business. Then, after learning everything about commercial fasteners, they both moved on to other companies where they learned the “nuts and bolts” of aerospace and mil spec fasteners.
After years of working in various positions for companies that were either too large or too impersonal, they dreamed of someday owning their own small business. Once they realized that they already had the right tools and skills to run a company – and with the right contacts, resources and loyal customers – they soon put thought to action, and in November of 1982 launched Dynamite Fasteners, Inc. out of their home in New Jersey. After only 8 months, their business soon exceeded the space in their home and they needed a larger place. In July of 1983, the Dynamite team moved to 1 Madison Street in East Rutherford, New Jersey, where they continued to serve their customers until December 2018, and then relocated to 9207 Marbach Road in San Antonio, Texas.
37 years later, Dynamite Fasteners is still a small service-oriented company. Jess and Ro still remember how they got to be where they are today – by treating customers with respect, and by offering fast, knowledgeable and personal service. As they said from the start: “Bigger isn’t always better – we won’t let our customers get lost in the shuffle.”
