Decatur Industrial Supply opened in October 2015 under the ownership of Les Blevins. The company offers a full line of USA made fasteners and hand tools specializing in same day delivery to residential, commercial, wholesale, and government customers.
Mr. Blevins was faced with the challenge of needing cash flow to purchase more inventory for his small business. He worked closely with the Entrepreneurial Center in Decatur to formulate a business plan and present it to NARCOG’s Small Business Fund.
An application for funding was approved and awarded to Decatur Industrial Supply affording them the ability to source and supply any product category its network of customers may need. Offering same day delivery saves customers time and money.
Mr. Blevins currently leases office space at Decatur Entrepreneurial Center. His five-year goal is to have a storefront to better service current and future customers. He also anticipates hiring three to four additional sales representatives as the business grows. Mr. Blevins is grateful that NARCOG’s Small Business Fund was able to service his company with the necessary cash flow needed to sustain and grow the business.
NARCOG was pleased to highlight the efforts of Decatur Industrial Supply to offer a critical product during the COVID-19 pandemic. See a copy of our social media post below.
