6 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S

6 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK Nautic Partners, LLC (“Nautic”) is pleased to announce that it has completed the acquisition of LindFast Solutions Group (“LindFast”), in partnership with LindFast management. Headquartered in Blaine, MN, LindFast is a master distributor of specialty fasteners in the North American market serving a broad base of national, regional, and local distribution customers through its metric (Lindstrom) and imperial (Stelfast) product brands. As a master distributor, LindFast provides an important link in the fastener supply chain by offering a deep inventory as a “virtual warehouse” of approximately 130,000 low volume, slow moving SKUs that distribution customers need quickly but are non-economical to inventory and source themselves. These SKUs represent high-touch, specialty products that can be difficult to source due to their unique length, diameter, thread pitch, metal choice, or finish. In addition to sourcing unique product and providing virtual warehouse services, LindFast provides its distribution customers a range of value-added services such as break bulk, packaging, kitting, plating, coating, and guaranteed stock programs. “We are excited to work with the Nautic team as we continue to grow our business and further enhance our customer experience. Our brands and customer relationships are strong today and will only improve as a result of this new partnership,” said Neil Yeargin, CEO of LindFast. Headquartered in Blaine, MN, LindFast is the leading high-touch master distributor of specialty fasteners in the North American market and is a vital supply chain partner and superior sourcing solution to a broad based of distribution customers. Nautic is a middle-market private equity firm that focuses on three industries: healthcare, industrial products and outsourced services. Nautic has completed over 130 platform transactions throughout its 30-plus year history. Nautic’s strategy is to partner with management teams to accelerate the growth trajectory of its portfolio companies via add-on acquisitions, targeted operating initiatives, and increased management team depth. For more information, contact Lindfast by Tel: 1-800-328-2430, Fax: 763-780-0554, Email: sales@lindfastgrp.com or visit them online at www. lindstromfasteners.com. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Rockford Fastener, Inc. is proud to announce we are celebrating 42 Years of serving the distribution market. In April of 1977, a small group of highly-skilled and motivated individuals started Rockford Fastener, Inc. to provide fastener buyers an efficient, prompt and responsible source. Today our current President Nic Orman carries on the pride and compassion for excellence his father instituted, with the same focus. In addition, Brian Stark has been promoted to Vice President of Sales and Marketing providing 28 years of manufacturing experience to the position which will allow the management group to focus on staying relevant in today’s market. Along with Nathan Mayer being promoted to Sales Engineering, his zest to learn continues to set an example for the rest of our company as we look to our future. RFI produces standard, semi-standard and special made to order cold headed fasteners in steel, stainless and brass from #4(M3) up to 1/2” (M12) diameter, lengths up to 5” (127mm). With our single die two blow or one of our many multiblow headers we can offer a full range of per print items with the engineering and quality support you’ve come to expect. We can supply completed parts including special finishes, patches, or parts that require secondary operations such as drill and tap, captivation or other special features.
