March 18, 1982 FIN – Non-Ferrous has another innovation in development now.  It has converted an old Waterbury cold nut former over to a hot lnut former.

“All of the big fastener engineers are going to say that’s impossible,” Cecil Couch says. “That may be, but we’re running up to 1/2″ heavy on it now.”

“As soon as it does what it does, we’re going to be in the exoti nut business, as well as probably doing something in a carbon alloy nut business. We make a great many bolts. We also make nuts, but one at a time here. We are interested in production runs and this is part of our game plan this year.”

Another part of their game plan is to computerize their whole business.

Non-Ferrous is part of a fastener group owned by Richard Lassiter and Melvin Kirsner, which also includes seven distribution operations in the West. These are: Nevada Nut & Bolt, Las Vegas; Sunbelt Supply, Las Vegas; Eagle Fasteners, Grand Junction, Colorado; Cal Mill Supply, San Diego, Cal.; Bolt & Nut Export, San Diego, Cal.; Fresno Bolt, Fresno, Cal.; and Allied Valve & Fitting, San Diego, Cal.  ©1982/2011 Fastener Industry News
