Arrow Fastener, now part of Hangzhou GreatStar Industrial, announced the relaunch of the Pony and Jorgensen adjustable clamping brands along with Goldblatt tile, drywall, concrete and masonry tools to the North American marketplace in mid-2018.
GreatStar, based in Hangzhou, China, is one of the largest hand tool manufacturers in Asia, specializing in designing and manufacturing high-quality products for DIY, professional and industrial markets globally. Arrow Fastener, based in Saddle Brook, N.J., is a leading manufacturer of staple guns and heavy duty staples in North America.
Arrow’s sales, marketing and distribution teams will be harnessed to support and grow these three widely known brands, according to GreatStar. Arrow’s strategically located N.J. facility will become a primary distribution center for Pony, Jorgensen and Goldblatt products, in addition to Arrow’s own product line.
Over the past 18 months, GreatStar has been recreating the Pony and Jorgensen products at its manufacturing centers in China. Of the original 500 SKUs, GreatStar is recreating the 200 top sellers. These are the products which will support the reintroduction of the brands.
Arrow is currently in the process of stocking the Saddle Brook, N.J. warehouse with Pony, Jorgensen and Goldblatt inventory to feed the growing business. The company expects the warehouse to be fully stocked and operational by July 2018.
