Successful exhibition and networking at the Fastener Fair USA


On April 11 & 12, 2018 the first Fastener Fair took place in the USA. The venue was in Cleveland, Ohio. The two-day fair drew over 2,000 visitors to its halls, in which over 250 exhibitors from 20 countries presented their products. Companies from throughout the supply chain were present, drawn from numerous industries, including automobile, aerospace, energy and construction.

The goal of the Fastener Fair USA was to bring together manufacturers, dealers, suppliers and consumers of fasteners and leading technologies to establish a dialogue between them. The corrosion experts of Dörken MKS took advantage of the two days to make promising new contacts.

The fair presented Doerken Corporation with the opportunity to not only generate new potential customers, but also to connect with sales partners, coaters and experts on the US market. “The Fastener Fair USA was a complete success for us,” summarised Kent Anderson, President Dörken Corporation USA. “We had an extraordinary number of visitors and were able to conduct positive discussions with manufacturers of screws and fasteners, as well as distributors, current customers and representatives of many new opportunities.”

The visitors also benefited from the fair, gaining an insight into the latest technology and developments in the market. Planning is already under way for the Fastener Fair USA 2019, which will be held in Detroit, Michigan.
