Ranswomware attack at SASCO Fasteners, Eurolink FSS excels at hard to find metrics, FDI dips but optimism rises, Carmen Vertullo on structral bolting and the Cuomo bridge scandal
Show Notes

At first glance, the screw biz can seem a sleepy industry, quietly minding its own business. But when Steve Dunham of SASCO Fasteners tells the harrowing tale of a computer ransomware attack on his business, you’ll be roused without even a whiff of Mrs. Olson’s brew (1:16:34). Also on high alert, especially for hard to locate metric fasteners, visionary Craig Penland explains the Eurolink Fastener Supply Service edge in this specialty niche (16:30). NFDA vice president and Trinity Logistics EVP, Dan Zehnder joins industry newsman Mike McNulty to take measure of mixed FDI results on the Fastener News Report (47:36). Carmen Vertullo uses recent news of another bridge problem as an object lesson in structural bolting during the Fastener Training Minute (1:09:19). Plus, an all points bulletin remains in affect for a certain missing fastener bobblehead, last seen at the Vegas show. Brian and Eric wrestle with thematic development issues and water bottles.
