Purchase Partners is a wholly owned subsidiary of McLaughlin Metal Sales Company, Inc. Since 1971, the McLaughlin Group has been servicing large, quality customers like you.  Originally known to manufacturers in the Midwest, our reputation has grown in the Southwest, South, and Rocky Mountain regions, too. 
 
In 1988, McLaughlin Metal Sales expanded their products offered by acquiring Grenada Fasteners, a small cold-heading plant in Mississippi.  By November 1989, one more company was added in St. Louis, known today as Purchase Partners®.  
 
The initial purpose of the new company, Purchase Partners®, was to compliment our domestic manufacturing plant with a Full-Line Distribution Business supplying domestic and offshore products. 
 
The evolution of our business came one step further in 1991 by redirecting our business position from Commodity Supplier to one of Material Management Partner.  Purchase Partners is fully committed to being the Leading Supply Partner for Vendor Managed Inventory Systems in the OEM market. Through all of our products, services and relationships, we are committed to forging a unified and synchronized supply chain. 
 
Today we operate three divisions:  Purchase Partners® , Purchase Partners of Asia™, and McLaughlin Metal Sales Company, Inc., and have sales exceeding $70 Million dollars annually and Growing! 
 
Our efforts are dedicated to future growth -- yours and ours and we know the best way for our company to grow profitably in the future is to enhance the productivity of our partners.
