One-Stop Contractor's Supply House

Here for you since 1984

Nationwide Tools & Supplies was established in 1984 by Ray Doherty on the foundation of superior service. Our roots were in the crating industry, and as consumers, we expected no less than superior service from our nail vendor.

Nationwide has been there as a customer, so we know firsthand that customers want solutions, not excuses. It was on these premises that Nationwide was built.

Our home office is in Houston, Texas, and we continue to grow with three other Texas locations serving areas from the Rio Grande Valley to College Station. These branches are located in McAllen, Corpus Christi, and College Station.

We operate a fleet of customized trucks to ensure our customers’ needs are met while on the job. We deliver expert knowledge, professional service, and quality products to construction sites in the inner city and surrounding neighborhoods.

In addition, Nationwide’s home office in Houston is a well-stocked 17,000 sq. ft. facility.  Our remodeled showroom has been redesigned to serve our walk-in customers in a fast and personal level. We pride ourselves on being a one-stop contractor’s supply house offering products ranging from nails and staples to a complete line of industrial strength power tools. Our reputation for outstanding service has built a strong and loyal customer base.

Products & Services

Nails & staples

We have carried nails and staples for all tools since 1984. Our stock is manufactured in the U.S., Europe, Taiwan, and China. After more than 30 years in the industry, we have found the best mills in the world.

job-site delivery

Let us pamper you. When you are short on time or can’t transport your items, we will deliver your purchases right to your job site. That's right — you don't need to leave your site to run to your vendor for supplies or tool service. It’s all the expert knowledge, professional service, and quality products you’ve come to expect from our showrooms but at your job site instead.  Our fleet of customized trucks can transport up to 192 boxes of fasteners direct to your job site. Call for more information.

air compressors

When you have a winner, why change? We have been carrying Rol-Air and Jenny compressor brands for over 17 years. We are proud to carry these American-made products.

We sell from 1 horse power direct drive to 10 horse power belt drive. Larger units can also be special-ordered. In gas or electric, we have the unit you need. Come see why contractors buy our brands.

power tools

Back in 1989 when we developed our property at 6100 N. Shepherd Drive, we started carrying power tools. It's challenging to carry all the major power tool brands, but we understand that tool buyers have a preference. Your reason may be a desire for certain tool features or maybe that your dad used and trusted this brand. At Nationwide, we try to satisfy your appetite with a wide selection.

Where else can you buy a power tool and get factory-authorized service at the same retail store? We don't send your tool off the premises to an outside vendor to have your tool serviced. Your tool is taken care of in-house by our seasoned, factory-trained technicians.

warranty repair

Nationwide Tools and Supplies is an authorized warranty repair service center, meaning you can get your tools repaired right in your neighborhood by local technicians. Let our factory-trained technicians repair your power and electric tools, air compressors, and generators. We understand that you need your equipment in top shape in order to operate efficiently, and we will help you there.

We offer warranty repairs for many industry-leading brands, including Rolair, Stihl, Hitachi, Max, Everwin, Spotnails, Pneu Tools, Senco, Fasco, and Jenny. Call us for more information.

carpenter accessories

You are a unique person, with your own imagination and projects to work on. So why not use a tool store that anticipates your specific needs and carries specialized tools not found in other places? We look for unique tools that help you work more efficiently. Come to us with your biggest projects, and we’ll help you find the tools you need to get the job done. From a 16” circular saw to positive placement nailers to heavy-duty leather work gloves, we have what you need to complete the job to your satisfaction.

At Nationwide, we help you make money. We feel so confident in these products that if you aren’t as excited about them as we are, just return it for credit towards another product. We're not happy until you are happy. Your feedback matters to us, and your satisfaction shows us what our customers are looking for in their tools.

saw-blade sharpening

If you have cleaned your blade and are still unsatisfied with performance, it may be time to look at the sharpness of your blade. A dull saw-blade affects performance and cut quality. The longer you run a dull blade, the faster it will dull, which means more material must be ground away to return the blade to peak sharpness. When TLC and cleaning no longer produce the results you need, bring your blades to Nationwide Tools and Supplies for professional blade sharpening services.
