A Reputation Built on Integrity and Reliability!


In 1926 Manuel Gorriaran founded Hook-Fast Specialties, Inc. by introducing what was then a newly invented style of belt buckle called the “Hook-Fast Can’t Slip Buckle”. Before long, customers began to request other items and Hook-Fast responded and expanded the business to include badges, tie clasps, name plates, money clips, and key chains. Today, Hook-Fast manufactures a broad spectrum of recognition and identification products in our headquarters in Providence, Rhode Island. Our network of distributors enables these products to be sold in markets across the globe.

We, at Hook-Fast are favored by those who recognize the benefits of dealing with a company with professional integrity and a strong record of reliability. Repeat business is our mainstay and we are proud of our record of customer service. Hook-Fast made being a customer easy and the customers have made Hook-Fast a success!

There is no substitute for experience


Continuously owned and operated by the Gorriaran family since 1926, Hook-Fast proudly enjoys a reputation for value unmatched in the industry. Although times have changed and much of our manufacturing has become computerized and fully automated, we still recognize the need for "hands on" craftsmanship to create a truly customized product. Manuel Gorriaran made sure that pride in ownership came from every Hook-Fast creation. We are committed to continuing this legacy today by responding with brilliance!
