Metric & Multistandard Components Corp. was established in 1963 by immigrants from Czechoslovakia who followed a business opportunity to the United States.  Today Metric & Multistandard continues to thrive under ownership and management of the second and third generations of the founding families.

Metric & Multistandard has its own procurement office in Germany, which can source ISO, DIN and EN items throughout Europe.  Metric & Multistandard receives weekly airfreights as well as regular sea shipments from our global resources into Metric’s NY headquarters. Metric can supply many special items with a very short delivery time. This provides optimal customer service even on hard to find items.

Metric’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 Metric & Multistandard founders believed that a well-conceived, detailed catalog was the key to the long-term success of the business. Although certain products that Metric & Multistandard Components Corp. offers may seem rather mundane, there is a great deal of technical information associated with their composition and installation. The Metric & Multistandard Components Corp. catalog is there to provide this information accurately and concisely.

Metric & Multistandard 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, Metric & Multistandard Components Corp. 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. Metric’s 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 Metric & Multistandard’s locations significantly increased its physical capacities either through expansion or relocation.

In 1993, Metric & Multistandard 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, Metric & Multistandard Components Corp. 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 Metric locations in the United States, Metric & Multistandard 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 fifty years ago. We look forward to continued growth and success through innovation and commitment to our customers.

Metric & Multistandard maintains 5 fully stocking warehouses, each with a full sales staff.  Metric & Multistandard Components Corp. strategically planned each branch location to reach almost any place in the continental United States within 2 days by UPS Ground service.  Metric has all four time zones covered so customers have the convenience of talking to a live sales person and the ability to ship from 8 a.m. EST to 4:30 p.m. PST.  Metric & Multistandard is committed to provide excellent customer service through outstanding technical knowledge, immediate product availability and accurate & timely delivery.
