Eagle Fasteners was incorporated in October 1976 by Jim Srock. It started out as a small, family business in a shop on Leach Road in Rochester Hills, Michigan. In 1978, Eagle started making parts for General Motors, and that was the start of growth. By 1990, the building on Leach Road had become too small, so Pontiac Road became the new home for Eagle.
Over the years we have added employees and machines as well as continued to develop new business. In 2000, Jim died and the rest of the family kept things going. We passed our first Quality Audit for QS9000 just before that, and in May of that year were certified for QS9000.
In 2001, we were able to purchase three new high-tech injection molding machines and a lot of accessory equipment.
In 2006, we were certified TS16949 Quality Service and recertified in 2007.
In 2008, we purchased a new building in order to expand business based upon the demand of our already existing customers. By the end of the year, we had moved into the building.
For two years, things were difficult as nationwide businesses had to deal with the recession. Luckily for us, things turned around fairly quickly. We increased our staff from around 8 people to about 25 and purchased a number of new machines and auxiliary equipment. When we moved, we thought we would have lots of space to work with, but we filled it up before we knew it, without bringing in a tool shop.
We have multiple marketing firms representing us and these firms work tirelessly to bring us new customers. Recently, our workload has more than doubled as we’ve taken on clients such as Visteon, ASC, Flushmate (joint with John Bicel, re), and Webasto.
We are continuing to look for new customers and increase our amount of sales with existing customers.
