Mike McGuire, President of Worldwide Fastener Sources.com is pleased to announce the 2020 Class of Fastener Innovation Award winners. The awards are presented annually to recognize those individuals and companies where their specific fasteners are innovative in assemblies today and that they will be tomorrow’s standard.
Fastener innovation is so strong and ongoing, it is called a “Technology Trend” in the fastener industry. In fastening application engineering today, the engineers and designers now dictate that fasteners are an important part of product design and assembly and are now thought of “first” in specifying fastening applications, not an afterthought of how to assemble the product. Our philosophy is continuous improvement with innovative solutions for customers’ fastening applications.
