- Corporate History -

Metric and Multistandard Components Corp. specializes in METRIC fasteners and industrial components. We stock over 48,000 high-quality items at all five of our locations. Our sales staff is technically trained to thoroughly understand the products that we sell and our catalog is recognized throughout the industry as being the most comprehensive guide to METRIC supplies in the United States.

MMCC was founded in 1963 by three Czech entrepreneurs who had a vision to bring metric and British industrial components — both common and unusual — to US industry. MMCC has never lost sight of that vision and today remains committed to being the largest and most comprehensive supplier of these parts in the United States.

The company's first office was a modest 4,000 square foot building in Yonkers, NY. For the first several years, the owners were the only employees - performing all tasks from sales & purchasing to shipping & receiving. Their "hands-on" involvement with the business guaranteed that things got done right and got done quickly. The urgency that they gave to every order - no matter how big - can still be seen today.

The founders believed that a well-conceived, detailed catalog was the key to the long-term success of the business. Although certain products that we offer may seem rather mundane, there is a great deal of technical information associated with their composition and installation. The catalog was there to provide this information accurately and concisely. Catalog #6013 continues this tradition today. It is the 13th major catalog since 1963.

The business continued to grow throughout the sixties and early seventies. The Yonkers, NY office quickly became too small to accommodate the volume of orders and inventory. In 1971, MMCC moved to a 10,000 square foot office in Elmsford, NY. After three years, that became too small and our current office was built in Hawthorne, NY. During this time of tremendous growth, it also became clear that the best way to serve customers west of the Mississippi was to open full-stocking branch offices. Our first branch was opened just outside of Chicago in 1975. Shortly after, in 1977, the second branch was opened in Dallas. During the eighties, each of our locations significantly increased its physical capacities either through expansion or relocation.

In 1993, MMCC established a purchasing office in Germany to centralize our European purchasing and consolidate incoming freight shipments. The office has proved to be an invaluable asset to our customers. In 1995, MMCC opened a full-stocking branch in Atlanta to solidify our share of the southeastern US market. In 2000, our Reno branch was added to the team finalizing a strategy that every city in the US be reachable by regular UPS ground service within 2 days. Between the five locations in the United States, MMCC now occupies over 175,000 square feet of office and warehouse space.

Our company continues to be 100% American owned by two of the families that started the business over forty years ago. We look forward to continued growth and success through innovation and commitment to our customers in this new millennium.
