Successful trade fair appearance at the second Fastener Fair USA


Fastener Fair USA, the only fastener and fixing exhibition in the U.S. for the full supply chain, opened its doors for the second time on 22nd and 23rd April 2019. The venue was Detroit, Michigan. Companies from throughout the supply chain were present, drawn from numerous industries, including automobile, aerospace, energy and construction.

Fastener Fair USA focused on creating an event to bring together manufacturers, distributors, suppliers and end users of fasteners and joining technologies and to establish a dialogue between them.

The corrosion experts of Dörken MKS took advantage of the two days to exchange trends and market developments with customers and plant manufacturers and to make promising new contacts. 

“This year's Fastener Fair was a complete success for us”, explains Kent Anderson, President Dörken MKS USA. “We had a lot of visitors and were able to conduct positive discussions with manufacturers, traders and potential customers of numerous industries.” The exhibition team presented this year the zinc flake technology and the new products of Dörken MKS: the spray can DELTA-PROTEKT® Repair, the room air-drying zinc flake system DELTA-PROTEKT® 170 RT and the lubrication DELTA-LUBE® 50. Especially the wooden block into which construction screws, coated with DELTA-LUBE® 50, could be tested in comparison with commercially available construction screws attracted the interest of the visitors.

The visitors gained good insights into the latest technology and developments on the market. “Already after the second year, it can be seen that Fastener Fair has become one of the leading trade fairs for us in the USA”, Anderson sums up. “We were not only able to meet familiar faces, but also companies that did not know Dörken MKS and our zinc flake technology yet. Here we could introduce ourselves as THE CORROSION EXPERTS.”

Planning is already under way for the Fastener Fair USA 2020, which will be held in Charlotte, Carolina.
