1990 FIN – Black & Decker Names Gustafon to Head Emhart

May 1, 1990 FIN – Black & Decker, Towson, Maryland, which merged with Emhart Corp. last year, has named Paul Gustafson as president of the company’s worldwide industrial fastener group.
Gustafson, most recently in charge of Emhart’s U.K. Tucker Fastener operation (manufacturing POP type rivet products for the U.K. market), will relocate to the U.S. to take his new position. Gustafson began his 18-year career at Emhart with the POP Rivet Division where he later was named general manager.
In 1985 he was named vice president of fastening systems, Far East. Gustafson was transferred to England in 1988.
Black & Decker’s industrial fastening systems group in the U.S. includes the Parker-Kalon, Gripco and Warren divisions as well as POP and Helicoil divisions.
The U.S. operations account for about half of the worldwide industrial fastening systems group.
Gustafson, now heading the entire industrial fastener segment, will report to Raymond DeVita, executive vice president of Black & Decker’s commercial and industrial segment. Also, Ed Dalterio has been promoted from POP marketing manager to national sales manager in charge of the POP and Helicoil sales teams, which sell the company’s lines of blind rivets and self locking thdreaded inserts to industrial accounts. Dalterio, working out of Shelton, Connecticut, has been with POP for 24 years in various sales and marketing positions.
Black & Decker’s industrial fastener businesses produce and market almost all of the company’s fastener product lines.
A small segment (about 5%) of Black & Decker’s fastener businesses produce fasteners for the consumer markets. Theses include the Molly division and part of the POP division.
Those businesses, previously part of Emhart’s home products group, were recently made a part of Black & Decker’s Accessory and Fastening Business. ©1990/2009 Fastener Industry News.
