March 19, 1991 – Sems & Specials, Inc., Rockford, Illinois, is a new company now producing sems and specialty products (#2 through 1/4 in. diameters) for distributor markets.

The company has been established by Bruce Hayes, president, a 14-year veteran of the fastener industry who most recently was vice president of Greenslade & Co.
Hayes and Joe Greenslade co-founded Fastener Inspection Products, a supplier of precision thread gauging equipment.
Hayes tells FIN that Sems & Specials has an extensive quality control department well equipped for dimensional inspection and performance testing. Inspection instruments which have been installed are Tri-Roll thread comparators for both functional and single element gauging, strength and hardness testers and other gauging equipment. The equipment is modern (the high speed headers, says Hayes, are capable of producing parts at 450 parts per minute), and all orders can be supplied with full documentation and certification.
Sems & Specials is located at 2130 Nimtza Rd., Rockford, IL 61111,  ©1991/2014 Fastener Industry News.
