About Us

Established in 1969.

Philip H. Ruffini believed he could use his knowledge of the fastener industry gained from his years of service with Whitehead Metals, Inc. to provide a superior service to central New York. The name “Rumetco” was created by his wife Florence as a shortened version of Ruffini Metal Company. This set the stage for a business that would take care of his family, and his customers.
