Phoenix-based, family-owned-and-operated Copper State Bolt & Nut Co. is expanding its 50-year Valley presence with a new Class A distribution center in the award-winning PV 303 industrial park in Goodyear, Arizona.
Being built by leading local general contractor Stevens-Leinweber Construction (SLC), the project was prompted by the growth of Phoenix’s far West Valley, where Copper State customers are actively involved in a growing list of projects and will benefit from a more immediate access point for Copper State products.
Founded in Phoenix in 1972 with six employees, Copper State today employs almost 500 and supports more than 20,000 customers across the West and Southwest. It provides traditional fasteners, construction products, industrial supplies and specialty products to a wide range of construction- and manufacturing-related industries.
“We have spent 50 years evolving to support our fast-paced, service-oriented industry, and our latest expansion is no exception,” said Copper State CEO Sarah Shannon. “This new facility expands our reach farther into Phoenix’s West Valley than we have been before, where so many of our customers are building and operating in response to a nearly unprecedented commercial and residential boom. With our location at PV 303, we will be right where they need us to be.”
Copper State operates more than 30 facilities in Arizona, California, Colorado, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Utah and Washington. Ten of those are in Arizona, including the company’s manufacturing and assembly headquarters.
The new Copper State warehouse and distribution building will total 39,491 square feet on 5 acres at the southwest corner of the Loop 303 and Camelback Road. It will feature dual shipping/receiving yards, a state-of-the-art customer call area, a fully air conditioned warehouse and an open concept office area.
It sits within PV 303, a Loop 303-fronting industrial park that is already home to approximately 7 million square feet of completed or under construction industrial product, with tenants including Ball Manufacturing, Boeing/XPO, Daimler, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Fairlife, HD Supply, REI, SubZero and XPO/Abercrombie and Fitch.
“Like Copper State, our company has a multi-decade tenure built on strong customer- and employee-centered core values,” said Stevens-Leinweber Construction Vice President Erik Powell. “We are proud to have been chosen by Copper State for this project and to be a part of their growth in Arizona and the region.”
The architect for the new Copper State building is Winton Architects. The project is under construction now, with delivery expected in January 2023.

Respected by architects, designers, owners and developers, the company is selected time and again to complete some of the Valley’s most prominent projects.
