[2003] Starting small, The Nailco Group owner Larry Gaynor filled an unmet need for manicuring products and now boasts the largest product offering of any distributor in the U.S. What started as just a few shelves in Gaynor’s Health and Beauty Aids store devoted to manicuring products has grown to become the worldwide industry leader in beauty products. The Nailco Group’s commitment to unsurpassed client delight has transformed a small local distributor into an international powerhouse that now includes hair, tanning, and skin care, as well as advanced professional education, salon and spa design services, and ground-breaking industry events. Nailco Manicurist Centers, started in 1985, have evolved into The Nailco Group, with four distinct divisions, including The Industry Source. Whether you visit one of 15 retail locations for professionals, peruse the 272-page beautybook, or surf online at the awardwinning site, it’s clear that Larry Gaynor, president and CEO, has always had a vision that is right in focus.

“The local community is where you find the action in the nail industry,” says Gaynor. “We offer products and services to keep their businesses running — and growing. Nail techs have come to rely on our unmatched technical support, free shipping on orders $99 and over in 48 hours or less, and our commitment to 100% customer satisfaction.” Still family-owned, The Nailco Group’s focus on customer delight establishes a true partnership for success in salons around the world.
