Mechanix Wear ultimately was ranked the top yearly performer among 33 eligible peer suppliers in the category.

“Overcoming supply chain issues has been a nothing short of a herculean task over the last two years, but through smart, hard work and dedication to our customers, our products, our service and support, we have been able to stay on top of our game. This recognition means a lot, it’s an honor to be awarded the top position for this important category within Fastenal and receive another coveted blue jacket, and we’re already hard at work ensuring the momentum stays strong through 2022 and beyond,” said Royce Hanamaikai, Director of National Accounts at Mechanix Wear.

Fastenal’s Supplier Scorecard Program is intended to measure success among supplier partners and help promote understanding of Fastenal’s supply chain and the company’s focus on growth through customer service.
