NCFA Distributor Social saw much discussion of tariff increases, Tim Jackson of Action Fasteners explains how he grew his business, and the Fastener Distributor Index rebounds. Much more!
Show Notes

Like a true life action figure with a sawhorse and a handshake, Tim Jackson explains how he took Action Fasteners from the garage to an acquisition and beyond (1:45:44). The NCFA Distributor Social was a major success with its own brand of fastener action, including plenty of spirited conversation about tariffs (15:09). Moving away from the fastener fray for his own reasons, Damon Carson of Repurposed Materials explains why excess fastener inventory can be such a challenge (33:34). Then, Rick Peterson of All-West Components sits in to comment on rebounding Fastener Distributor Index numbers (1:18:02). During the Fastener Training Minute, guru Carmen Vertullo reminds us that commingling fasteners is still an important consideration (1:39:45). Plus, show manager Morgan Wilson previews the upcoming International Fastener Expo, and announces some welcome improvements (1:02:48). Thematically, Brian and Eric saw some action of their own recently, courtesy of the FCH Thread Shad.
