In 2010, my wife and I had a discussion that many farmers or ranchers have had or at least thought about; that was building or repairing fences around our property. What a task! I had been hammer driving fence staples for many years, mashing thumbs and fingers, getting pierced with flying staples to finish the building job along with aching elbows and shoulders.
Well, I told my wife there had to be a better way to drive staples than using a hammer. So, I began looking on the internet for some sort of a staple driver. No luck! I then decided to invent one. Not only did I have a need, but every farmer, rancher, and fencing company needed one too. Since I found none available I began down loading all the pneumatic construction nail gun literature to evaluate their mechanism for driving nails. By chance I found the Paslode New Zealand’s web site. What a discovery, there was an automatic wire fence staple driver on the home page.
I sent an email to them saying I wanted to buy one. The reply was that they didn’t sell them in the United States. Bummer! I sent another email telling them I lived in the central Kentucky race horse region and I thought there was a huge need for a stapling tool for the professional fencing companies and cattle and sheep farmers. One email after another led to phone calls and it was decided that STOCK-ade New Zealand would be interested developing a market here in Kentucky and surrounding states since there was no market at all anywhere in the United States. I was able to procure two STOCK-ade tools, one, the gas powered Impulse 200S and the other, the pneumatic ST 315 stapling tool. I was to show a regional need for local fencing companies by demonstrating the tools and compiling their interest by a written survey. The interest and need was overwhelming even to me. This led to a contract to become the only distributor in the United States for the STOCK-ade ST 315 and Impulse staplers, operating as WireFenceStapler. We have not just been a distributor, but we have been a voice of our customers back to the manufacturer. These discussions have lead to a larger gun, the STOCK-ade ST 400, capable of fastening with 9 gauge barbed staples.
Although our company Scintiprox, Inc. began in 1991 the division of WireFenceStapler only began in 2010.
So here we are, driving staples with a STOCK-ade tool.
