Adapting to the 2023 Fastener Climate

2023 is bringing new challenges to the fastener industry. Many of us have high-priced inventory on hand, and replacement costs are falling. How do we prepare and navigate our businesses and maintain a healthy bottom line?

Join us and our panel of industry leaders in a discussion on the future of the industry and strategies to weather the storm.

Panelists include Kelly Lehman (Pacific Warehouse Sales), Ryan McCaffrey (Pacific Coast Bolt), Clay Weaver (Industrial Threaded Products), and Bryan Wheeler (Star Stainless). Jo Morris (Desert Distribution/Fastener Training Institute) will moderate.
