Morton Fasteners, inc. is wholly owned by brothers John Morton and F.Scott Morton.
Scott Morton, began his fastener career in 1977, taking over the day-to-day operations of the family business (Morton Grinding, Inc., a sub-contract,
centerless grind facility) as vice president, from the patriarch and company founder, Wallace Morton. This facility performed subcontract centerless
grinding, surface grinding, gun hole drilling and thread rolling for companies such as Valley Todeco and Voi-Shan (now Alcoa), Hi Shear (now LISI),
Air Industries and PB fasteners (now PCC). It was his effort in these early years that enabled the formation of a separate, complete fastener
manufacturing company, Morton Manufacturing.
John W. Morton, began his career in 1980 working night shift of the family business, while attending school in the daytime, obtaining hands on
experience, running virtually every piece of equipment in the facility. He took over executive management as president of the newly formed Morton
Manufacturing in 1984.
As Morton Manufacturing grew, the capacity of the job shop was folded into the new company and ceased performing subcontract work. The two
facilities were combined in 1991 and in less than ten years, they took Morton Manufacturing from approximately $40,000 a month in sales to greater
than $2,000,000 per month. This included sales to all of the largest jet engine builders in the world. GEAE, Pratt & Whitney, Rolls Royce North
America and Allied Signal. Under their direction, it became the industry benchmark for quality, high temperature, aerospace fasteners.
In 2007, circumstances beyond John and Scott’s control, necessitated the formation of this new manufacturing facility, Morton Fasteners, Inc.
