Gateway Screw & Rivet was established in the Chicago area in 1954 as a responsive manufacturer of quality fasteners. Over 50 years and three generations later, Gateway continues to deliver personal attention and a product that makes us proud and that our customers can rely on.

Over the years, Gateway has evolved into a full-service manufacturer, distributor, and master importer of a full range of fasteners and components. This gives Gateway the versatility to give you, our customers, the service you need and the most competitive prices in the industry! As a domestic manufacturer, we produce specialty parts, problem parts and semi standard screws and bolts.

In fact, from a manufacturing standpoint, specialty is our specialty! With our in-house tooling capacity and engineering services, Gateway is prepared to handle your prototype needs in the timeframe you need. As a distributor, Gateway offers a full line of special and standard fasteners and components when you need them. Gateway can handle your needs for hold-for-release programs, JIT, KANBAN, consignment programs, and can provide vendor managed inventory programs.

As a master importer, Gateway can offer our customer the most competitive pricing on high volume requirements. With more than 25 years of importing experience, Gateway maintains an office in the Asia-Pacific region and has staff constantly working with our partner factories to insure that the best prices and deliveries are offered to our customers.

At Gateway, we offer our customers the best of all worlds and give you the security of in-house domestic manufacturing backup to cover special requirements. We are the one place to call when you want to “get it together”. While we are large enough to meet all of your requirements, we are still small enough to give you the personal attention you need.

Our Customers are Special

Here at Gateway, we think our customers are special. So we are constantly improving and expanding our business to best serve our customers. Our domestic manufacturing process is efficient and economical, with emphasis on quality control. With our experience in importing and our offshore partner factories, we can evaluate the most cost-efficient solution for our customers. Our constantly improving, fully automated order-processing system, including full EDI capability, insures delivery without delay.

A full product line accompanied by personal service is what Gateway offers to our customers. The special attention that we pay to our customers allows Gateway to provide the right part at the right time at the best possible price! With Gateway as a supply partner, the sky is the limit!
