Episode #56 - Narrowly Averted

With world annihilation averted, the FTR boys convene a semi-all star panel to explore the future of the fastener industry after reviewing the year gone by. John Butler, of K&L Sales, the iPhone-toting Andy Pels, of ScrewCrew.com, and the indefatigable, Mr. Tom Buddenbohn, of Technology Components Southwest, share their insights and predictions (81:14). BB&T analyst, Holden Lewis, joins Fastener Technology International editor, Mr. Mike McNulty, on the Fastener News Report to discuss the latest FDI reading, which crept up slightly in December (50:01). Plus, the industry locks and loads as Fidelis Fasteners founder, Rob Lucas, fires at point blank range while explaining his thoughts on the recent round of industry consolidation (14:55). Hosts Brian Musker and Eric Dudas aim toward a future of mobile network access even as they stockpile their ammo for the future of the fastener industry. Run time: 02:24:29
