Straight From The Show News, Images and Information from the National Industrial Fastener & Mill Supply Expo in Las Vegas RIVIT Develops Business in USA Adrian Andreescu , International Relationships Manager, RIVIT Srl , Ozzano dell’Emilia (BO), Italy, reported that the show has since 2004 been a clas-sic stop for Rivit in its vision of developing business in USA, understanding the policies and strategies of a very important market for fasteners and tools and looking for partners. This year the exhibition had a special flavor for RIVIT, who with its Ameri -can partner, Atlas , displayed the program of tools RIVIT offers as well as fasteners, which are making RIVIT a company offering a complete choice for any sheet metal industry firm. There was lively interest in the Atlas booth for tools for rivet nuts, blind rivets (standard and structural), pins and collars. From a general point of view, the Las Vegas show transmitted an important message—the American industry is recovering and a prudent optimism is moving between the distributors of fasteners and tools after the last editions where everybody was living with the menace of the continuous crisis. And we came back with the hope that soon the same op-timism will embrace all manufacturers, distributors, end users on our European continent. . Rivit/Atlas booth at Las Vegas show. Elgin Fastener Group Saw Strong Booth Attendance & Interest Tim Busching of Elgin Fastener Group, (EFG) , Versailles, IN, USA, reported, “We were very pleased with our 2012 NIFMS experience. The at-tendance was strong and our EFG sales team did a great job of pre-show communication with our distributor market, resulting in numerous opportu-nities for personal follow-up and interaction in our booth during both days of the show. Additionally, the interest generated by the recent Brighton-Best International and Elgin Fastener Group alliance provided some increased booth activity this year. Active EFG booth at Las Vegas show. New Look Creates More Business for National Carton Randy Yost of National Carton & Coating Co. , Xenia, OH, USA, reported that National Carton & Coating introduced a fresh new look this year at the show and the results prove an investment into a company’s image is an investment worth making. According to Yost, “The new look of the booth was a major hit. In between generating a record number of leads, we received positive feedback from cur-rent customers. A few even joked that they couldn’t find us because they were looking for our old dingy booth. The show is about building relationships with potential customers and the new booth enabled us to do just that.” In addition, National Carton introduced a well-received and similarly themed catalog outlining its Fastener Focus product line. National Carton is a manufacturer of custom printed and stock folding cartons that are designed for the hardware industry. New-look National Carton & Coating Co. booth at NIFMS . 74 December 2012
