WHAT A 
RIDE IT'S BEEN

In 1967, the iconic Chevy Camaro defined the automotive performance industry. That same year, the introduction of GRABBER redefined the construction product landscape.

50 YEARS OF GROWTH 
AND INNOVATION

It began with an idea for a better drywall screw, now it’s an international company representing thousands of professional quality products to the construction industry. Few companies make it 50 years in business, Grabber Construction Products has come a long way, and shows no signs of slowing down.

 

Known for innovation, quality, and consistency, Grabber Construction Products, Inc. shares its name with its first product, a coarse-thread drywall screw that changed the construction industry by replacing galvanized nails as the primary fastener used to hang drywall. Since that time, Grabber has expanded exponentially, bringing to market thousands of professional-grade fasteners, drywall fabrication products, finishing and decking products, tools, adhesives, paint, caulk, scaffolding, and more.

16,000 SKU'S AND COUNTING

The company today sells more than 16,000 SKUs, and every Grabber product remains centered on its original guiding principle: introducing and bringing to market solutions that serve the best interests of contractors and make their lives easier. To fulfill that vision, Grabber has devised systems and has fine-tuned product details to speed construction processes, improve product performance, and enhance the quality of each finished job.

A BRAND BUILT ON TRUST

Our customers find significance in the Grabber brand. Not only do they experience the quality differences in Grabber products, they see the long-run results. Their jobs get done faster. Their resources are used smarter. They know the products that they select for a job ultimately reflect their reputation.

Indeed, Grabber attributes its 50 successful years to strong relationships with contractors, distribution partners, and vendors. Construction is a bottom-dollar business, but Grabber has found even when dollars get tight, many customers are willing to stay with us. They trust our relationship and know with Grabber they will get quality products, exceptional service, and real-world answers and experience with different product applications. Grabber competes with billion-dollar brands, but our products and our connection with customers help us stand apart.

 

DRIVEN TO INNOVATE

Grabber continues to build on its relationships by standing behind the quality of its products, by having the ability and experience to address specialty-need applications, and by having the foresight and reach to bring industry-changing methodologies like the revolutionary PanelMax fabrication system to market. Thanks to the company’s unique reach, knowledge, and relationships, industry leaders and newcomers alike turn to Grabber as the company to bring a new product to the interior construction business.

 

Grabber Construction Products, Inc. is an international distributor of quality products for construction professionals. Grabber’s line includes premium fasteners and fastening systems for wood, metal and drywall applications in the commercial and residential construction markets.
