About Us

ISANTA's membership consists of industry-leading companies and includes a board of directors that works with staff to set, monitor, and assist in accomplishing the goals of the association.

History

ISANTA was formed in 1966 as the International Stapling and Nailing Technical Association when a small group of manufacturers, promoting the new and modern pneumatically driven power fastening systems, realized the need for common action and standards of practice, particularly in residential construction. In 1982, ISANTA became the International Staple, Nail, and Tool Association.

Since its founding, membership has increased to include greater representation across the industry. Our members are manufacturers of tools and/or fasteners, serving industries such as

  • residential and commercial construction
  • remodeling
  • manufactured housing
  • furniture
  • vehicles
  • pallets and containers
  • picture frames.

ISANTA has proudly demonstrated its ability to represent and promote the ever-expanding market opportunities in this innovative industry. The association is committed to maintaining its leadership role in working proactively with government entities, voluntary code bodies, and standards developers to effectively meet the needs of its members and the industries they serve.
