We want everyone to know that our people are dedicated to doing the best job that they can. Nobody is taken for granted, whether they are a repeat or one-off customer. Our mission is to provide good service, reliability, and a willingness to go that extra mile that big box stores cannot offer.
21 years ago, many of the larger companies started to leave Victoria because they felt that the market was too small. Our founder, Dave vanHumbeck was working as an island representative for Prime Fasteners and saw that there was still a need for that personal connection. As a result, Dave decided to start Island Fasteners with Jim Proctor in 1999. Shortly after, Jim retired and Island Fasteners became a family-owned business with Dave and his wife, Joanne at the helm. The business saw yearly growth and eventually outgrew the small store on Turner Street and Dave decided that a larger location would better suit the needs of the customers. This prompted the move to Wilfert Road where Island Fasteners continues to give the people of Vancouver Island the best service possible.
