American Made Fasteners - A Senco Tradition

This Friday is Independence Day, July Fourth, a time in America where we celebrate the birth of the United States - and everything the nation has come to represent. For many, the term "Made in America" is still a deciding factor when making a product purchase, whether it's a truck, tool or even a fastener. One of the last large-scale examples of a fastener manufacturer that is made here in America, Senco Brands, located in Cincinnati, produces more than 80 percent of their fasteners - nails and staples - in the state of Ohio.
 
One of the largest fastener production plants in the U.S., the Senco factory spans a whopping 500,000 square feet - and includes fastener manufacturing, tool research and development (not production), a warehouse and office space.
 
The trip each American made fastener makes at the Senco plant is as follows. Starting off as a spool of metal wire, each collated fastener journeys through the plant, as it goes from unrecognizable wire to the nails and staples that help build America's infrastructure.
 
The wire enters a machine that cuts the thread into partially finished nails, including head, shank and point. From there, the nails go onto a conveyor that sorts and organizes them - so that they are all facing the same direction as required for collation. Each fastener then goes through a finishing process - prior to being prepared for collation. For wire coil nails, the fasteners are then welded to a wire and spun into coils - keep in mind this process varies depending on the type of collation for a fastener (adhesive for staples, paper-tape strip nails, etc). Once the collated nails are complete, they are packaged and stored for delivery to distributors, such as Nail Gun Depot.
 
A fascinating process, this short video highlights Senco's American-made tradition.

    I have an old, old Senco stapler, SN HN 5 . 656296, which still works fine, except that when I ran out of staples, all I could find in my cabinet was a part of the empty boxx, with no further ID, and I've been trying to get more staples, as I use it often in my shop. Can you help? The best I can describe them, is that they are 1/4" flat crown, about 1/2" long, probably 22 ga.
    Hope you have them. Also, I think there were 10,000 in a box, maybe 1-1/2 wide and 6" long..

    I am looking for some cost comparisons for fasteners. I work for a window and door manufacturer building 8,9,10+ foot pallets for shipment. I use 2 and 3" non coated screws and 3 1/4" smooth coil nails. We are getting ripped off by our current supplier from a contract negoiated by a former employee. Any help would be appreciated.
