January 9, 1987 FIN – The Industrial Fasteners Institute of Cleveland, Ohio, has hit the century mark.
 Not in years, but in membership.
That’s double the membership that IFI had less than five years ago and indicates some hard work on the part of C.G. (Dick) Scofield, executive director, and his staff to bring the association back to vigorous life.

Five companies were recently admitted to IFI membership, including: Bristol Locknut Co., Madison Heights, Michigan (Thomas J. George, general manager); Brunner Drilling & Mfg Co., Inc., Elroy, Wisconsin (Ronald E. Brunner, president); B.F. Goodrich Co., Aerospace & Defense Div., Kendallville, Indiana (Dukas Tramontanis); Mid-American Threaded Fasteners, Div. of Tennessee Bolt & Screw Co., Memphis, Tennessee (William B. Gassaway, president); Southern Fastening Systems Div., Farley Metals, Inc., Statesville, NC (Herbert L. Henkel. president).

The IFI has also administratively accepted as new Unit Members of the Institute, eight aerospace fastener products manufacturing subsidiaries, divisions, etc. of incumbent IFI members.
These eight new members are the nucleus of the newly established Division VI which is concerned with fastener activities in the aerospace field.
The eight companies are: Cherry Div. of Textron Inc., Santa Ana, California; Elastic Stop Nut Div., Harvard Industries, Inc., Union, New Jersey; John Hassall, Inc., Westbury, New York; Heli-Coil Div., Emhart Fastening Systems Group, Danbury, COnnecticut; Huck Manufacturing Co., Aerospace Fastener Div., Carson, California; Microdot Aerospace Fastening Systems, Fullerton, California; Nylok Fastener Corp., Carson, California; and SPS Technologies, Newton, Pennsylvania.

The IFI, which is an association of leading North American manufacturers of bolts, nuts, screws, rivets and suppliers of equipment, material and services commonly used in fastener manufacturing, is headquartered at 1505 East Ohio Bldg., 1717 East 9th St., Cleveland, OH 44114.  ©1987/2015 Fastener Industry News.
