For a very long time people have relied on BSC Industries, Inc. They’ve chosen us because:

Our products: We have the products our customers need and we source from the best suppliers at the best terms.

Our services: We have chosen to offer a range of product selection, engineering, and value added services that are rarely offered under one roof. We provide these services because we’ve made it a core part of our business plan to anticipate and exceed the needs of our customers.

Our people and the values they reflect: The men and women who make up the BSC Industries team are a reflection of the founders and driving forces of our company. Every day we show up for work knowing we are carrying on a legacy passed on by men like James J. Fitzpatrick. Mr. Fitzpatrick was one of the “lucky ones” who landed in the third wave on D-Day at Normandy, fought across Europe, and came home to start a family, build a legacy, and to give back. His business plan was to work hard, provide real value and never forget how lucky he was. James and Peter Fitzpatrick continue that legacy and have been joined by men and women who share that value of “earning it” every day.
