The All-Fastener Industry Event
In the Heart of the Fastener Industry

EXHIBITS, SEMINARS & NETWORKING FOR
FASTENER MANUFACTURERS, DISTRIBUTORS & USERS

Welcome to Rosemont, IL, USA:

FASTENER TECH™ ’17, the 2017 version of the biennial all-fastener industry event in the heart of the fastener industry,
offers something for everyone in fasteners. Fastener manufacturers, distributors, users and industry suppliers are here
in Rosemont to exchange information on the state of the fastener industry. Market conditions are improving in many
sectors, so there is great benefit in discussing strategy, technology and business situations.
Past surveys of FASTENER TECH™ participants indicate that about 90% of respondents like the “All-Industry” focus of the
show as well as the Rosemont location. We expect a similar response at the close of this show. This year, FASTENER TECH™
includes the first-ever Fastener Industry Summit, on June 7, sponsored by the Fastener Industry Coalition.
Finally, we offer a special thanks to our exhibitors, seminar speakers, sponsors and attendees as well as the many fastener
industry publications and associations that have participated in the staging of FASTENER TECH™ ’17.

WIFI SEMINAR – FAST TECH ‘17

TUESDAY, JUNE 6, 2017

WIFI Networking at 10:30AM
Seminar Open to All 11AM – 12PM

THE ART AND SCIENCE OF TALENT DEVELOPMENT

In this interactive and lively session, Michael Simpson, Chief Human Resources Officer, EN Engineering, will
provide a look inside the art and science of talent development. You will learn how aspiring executives are
evaluated, and what senior leaders look for to declare an employee as high potential. You will gain insight into
how you can develop an executive persona, and professionally reinvent to prepare for more senior-level
responsibilities. More important, Michael will take you into executive board rooms to show you how senior
teams evaluate potential and performance. You will find out which traits and behaviors increase your chances
for promotion to senior level and which ones are deal breakers (and in some cases, career breakers).

Bio:

Michael Simpson has developed a reputation as a thought leader in the
Human Resource arena. In his career, Michael worked as a senior HR
executive in organizations across multiple industries: from small, rapidly
–growing organizations to global industry icons with over 150,000 global
employees. Michael held global roles which allowed him to work
extensively in Latin America, Europe, and Asia. While heading his own HR
consulting firm, Michael coached numerous senior executives, was a
featured speaker for the American Management Association and taught
strategic HR and change management at numerous universities. In 2013,
Michael received his Doctorate in Adult Learning (Ed.D.)

Michael’s main focus throughout his career is talent management and
development. Specifically, Michael is regarded as an expert in
identification and development of executive talent.

Registration Fees:

Members: Free
Non-Members: $35

Leland Industries Opening USA Plant Due to Rising Costs in Canada

According to local reports, Byron Nelson, CEO of Toronto, Ontario, Canada-based Leland Industries, said

the company is opening a plant in the USA state of Illinois because of rising Ontario electricity rates. Also, the

company plans a major expansion in production capacity in Illinois. Nelson said that Leland Industries will not

invest in Ontario any more because “the costs are just out of sight.” Nelson also said that he anticipates Ontario’s

new cap-and-trade system will cause electricity and natural gas costs to rise even higher.

The manufacturer of fasteners says the company is opening its new manufacturing facility in the United

States because rising energy costs have made Ontario uncompetitive for

2017 investment. Leland Industries employs about 220 people at its plants in

Toronto and Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, and Nelson said those workers

will be protected. ...Since 1970
Jocelyn Williams Bamford, VP of Automatic Coating Limited and
