Starborn Industries Celebrates 50 Years

New website combines company history and detailed product information.

Starborn Industries, Inc, a leading designer and supplier of deck screws, fasteners and related products for the building industry, is celebrating 50 years of success and innovation with the launch of a new, comprehensive and informative website. The site,, was specially designed to highlight the company’s long history of technological advances in fasteners as well as provide professional builders and do-it-yourselfers with access to one of the industry’s most comprehensive fastening information centers.

“We are extremely proud of our long history and commitment to customer support at every level,” says Paul Gertner, president of Starborn Industries. “For 50 years, Starborn Industries has dedicated itself to continuously working with a broad range of clients and partners to introduce new, innovative fastening technologies that support the latest advances and needs of the decking, flooring, woodworking and general construction industries.”

“Our new website was created to serve as a gateway for in-depth fastening information,” adds Larry Crossley, Vice President of Sales at Starborn Industries. “We’ve spent the past five decades helping customers solve problems with the introduction of timely, practical solutions that provide great-looking results, while saving time and money. This new site offers a detailed, one-stop way to easily retrieve fastening information and screw recommendations for nearly every composite or wood decking product on the market.”

Founded in 1961, Starborn Industries has grown from a small family-run wood products company to an international manufacturer of cutting-edge decking products dedicated to filling real-world needs with the latest innovations. Over the years, Starborn has relocated many times as the company has grown – starting in the family basement, expanding into several locations in Brooklyn, New York and finally making its home in a modern packaging and distribution facility in Edison, New Jersey, where the company currently serves thousands of stores and customers throughout the world.

Over the past half-century, Starborn has introduced numerous fastening technologies to the market that have greatly improved the deck building process, resulting in enhanced durability and longevity as well as reduced costs for builders. Starborn is in the business of creating idea-driven products, innovative solutions that drive the industry and provide builders and homeowners with smarter and faster ways of doing things.

As a result, Starborn is now recognized internationally for revolutionizing the fastening industry with the introduction of category leaders such as the Headcote Stainless Steel Screws with Colored Heads (, Smart-Bit Pre-drilling and Countersinking Tool (, Deckfast High-Quality Deck Fasteners (, Smart-Bit Pro Plug System for Wood ( and Cap-Tor Screw for Capstock and Composite Decking ( The company will also expand upon this history of innovation later this year with several other high-quality product launches.

In addition to offering in-depth descriptions and imagery highlighting these products and their benefits, the new Starborn Industries website was specifically developed to provide contractors, home owners and do-it-yourselfers with broad-based application information through its new online educational features – including the Deck Fastener Information Center ( The Deck Fastener Information Center allows users to conveniently and quickly input project details such as deck manufacturer, color and size and then automatically retrieve fastener options including the recommended screw type, head color and even the number of screws needed to complete projects.

“The ongoing success of Starborn Industries has been driven by the loyalty of our customers. In return, we are and always will be driven to support their efforts with new high-quality innovations and information sources designed to make their lives easier while providing excellent results every time,” adds Paul Gertner.
