36 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S

36 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK CARVER FACT CENTER 1920 Cordell Ct, Ste 101, El Cajon, CA 92020 TEL 619-440-5888 FAX 619-440-5887 EMAIL carmenv@carvermem.com WEB www.carverem.com Q&A WITH CARMEN VERTULLO by Michelle Fuson, Service Representative Many of you are familiar with Carmen Vertullo, whether through professional relationships, by meeting him at a fastener industry event, in the classroom, or from the technical articles he’s written for Distributors Link Magazine. For this article we’re going to turn the tables though - instead of Carmen writing the article, he’s the subject of our interview as we get to know more about Carmen and the Carver FACT Center. First, let’s hear a bit about you, Carmen, and how you’ve become an expert in the fastener industry. I first started working with fasteners while building and testing jet engines in the US Air Force. When I got out I used my GI Bill to get a BS in Manufacturing Engineering while working for a fastener supplier in San Diego. Since then I’ve accumulated over 30 years of experience in fastener applications, distribution, sales, quality assurance, training, and design. My company (Carver Engineering & Manufacturing, Inc.) has developed complex fastener solutions and provided fastener training programs for the US Navy, NASA, Naval Reactors, The US Army, electric utilities, water districts, manufacturing companies, steel erectors, associations, and many others. I’m currently a member of the ASTM International Technical Committee F16 on fasteners as well as the Research Council on Structural Connections (RCSC). So what exactly is the Carver FACT Center? Well first, FACT is an acronym for Fastening Applications, Consulting, and Training – and that’s exactly what we do here. Our mission is to bring state-ofthe-art solutions to users, suppliers and manufacturers ASME MEETING HOSTED AT CARVER FACT CENTER (JANUARY 2016) of fasteners. We accomplish that by combining our technical expertise and facility resources with strategic partnerships. The Carver FACT Center is an extension of Carver Consulting which is the consulting arm of Carver Engineering and Manufacturing. Who are your clients? Our clients include suppliers, manufacturers, importers and users of fasteners throughout the United States. Many of them are names readers would recognize, from the largest to the smallest companies in the industry. We also have the occasional attorney client who need expert witness help. One of our most important and distinguished clients is the Fastener Training Institute – FTI in Santa Clarita California. We have been developing and presenting training programs and webinars for FTI since the beginning of Carver Consulting. We have been especially active in FTI’s Certified Fastener Specialist Program.
