Stelfast acquired by Lindstrom, 10% tariff on fasteners, Amazon, Don Shan, Dick Ripley
Show Notes
Sometimes an outside perspective is needed to make sense of things. Such is the case as erstwhile fastener journeyman Don Shan charges into the fray to share thoughts on the Lindstrom/Stelfast deal, the tariff situation, how Amazon could break in, and where opportunities still exist in the screw biz (1:23:38). Temporary sideliner, Dick Ripley speaks publicly for the first time in a long time, and offers a rare glimpse into his artistic pursuits (32:17). R. W. Baird analyst David Manthey joins Mike McNulty on the Fastener News Report to review the latest FDI results and speculate if this ride is nearing an end (53:51). Plus, Carmen Vertullo presents the Fastener Training Minute, this time recommending a must-read book for fastener professionals (1:17:22). BONUS: Homegrown, barn-burning rock n roll written, performed, and produced by Dick Ripley (2:06:46). Brian reports on a field trip to Chicago’s Design Innovation Institute, and Eric juggles recursive technical issues and untimely fastener dog intrusions. Run time: 02:11:11
