From our small beginnings to your biggest project

In 1966, George Jack began an ambitious yet humble business venture repairing USM (United Shoe Machinery) eyelet machines. Over the years with help from family, friends and a few lofty entrepreneurial ideas, George acquired distributorship of USM’s new product line of POP® brand merchandise and his business grew into what is now known as Locator Industries.

Locator has evolved to become the oldest and most trusted distributor of POP® brand rivets, now known as the gold standard for fasteners in the industry around the globe. Whether you’re looking for rivets, threaded inserts or tools, our Toronto warehouse stocks millions of popular POP®/Avdel® products. Our customers, just like you, have come to rely on us for the perfect products for any size project.

While our focus may be to bring you the best fasteners and tools in the business, when and how you want them, Locator has stayed true to its modest beginnings and continues to provide superior service in eyeleting and beyond. We provide eyelets, grommets and duo-tangs for both small and large projects spanning the marketing, design, bindery and print industries.

Locator’s customer service lives by one motto: we’re there for you every step of the way. Our expert end-to-end customer service guarantees someone is there with you at every stage of your project. From the design and prototype stage, to ensuring quick, dependable delivery along with the industry’s most competitive pricing on your tools and fasteners, we will help you deliver your end product on time and on budget.
