Greg Wiener started out by selling nails and staples to furniture and cabinet makers. He realized that if he added some other supplies, he could make it a business. And so he founded QuickScrews, first working out of his garage.
After a few years, Wiener noticed a lack of fasteners specifically made for woodworkers. He partnered with an importer and was taught how to obtain quality products from Taiwan quickly.
Wiener noticed cabinet makers required especially particular screws. They wanted them with the coarse grip of dry wall screws, which often break in wood, and the strength of a sheet-metal screw, which spin out or split the wood.
