6 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S

6 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK Field, a global distributor of fasteners and other small components, announced they’ve been chosen as one of FORTUNE’S 100 Best Workplaces in Manufacturing and Production. Field was chosen as a People’s Pick: 15 Great Places to Work in Manufacturing & Production. The people focused Culture at Field is the foundation to the company’s success and a key factor in team member satisfaction. “The Culture at Field is built on shared values, a common mission, and passionate Team Members. I am truly honored that Field is being recognized as a People’s Pick,” states Field President, Jim Derry. “Our Team is what separates Field from our competitors and the results of the survey reaffirms the importance of our Culture within the organization. Our people love what they do and our customers, our suppliers, and our community can feel that love.” Field is a full service, technically oriented, global provider of inventory management and complete supply chain solutions for fasteners and other Class "C" items. They are the best in the industry at providing ongoing cost reduction through both technical support services and inventory management systems. The Illinois based company was acquired by Derry Enterprises, Inc. in 1990. Since then, Field has averaged 20% annual growth each year and for the fourth consecutive year has been recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest growing private companies in America. Field serves over 1000 customers worldwide.

Ramco Specialties, Inc. announces plans to build and move to a new 165,000+ sq.ft. facility in Hudson Industrial Business Park by the end of 2015. The new building will dramatically increase current production space and allow for future sales growth. Founded in 1977, Ramco is a global supplier focusing on internally threaded fasteners and cold formed specials to the automotive and heavy truck industries. The company currently occupies three buildings in Hudson. Growth due to domestic manufacturing and newly developed engineered products is driving the need to move. The company states consolidating from three buildings to one will greatly improve efficiencies as the manufacturing operation expands and sales continue to grow. “We have been at our current location since 1986 and have just reached our limit on Hudson Drive,” President Rick Malson, said. “My father always prided himself on keeping the business in Hudson. Our family is excited to carry on this tradition and deepen our roots in the community as we grow.” Ramco Specialties, Inc. was founded by the late Dick Malson 38 years ago from the back of a machine shop. Today, Ramco is a manufacturer/distributor of fasteners with global sales in excess of m - headquartered in Hudson, with locations in Italy and Sweden. “We are excited to be bringing manufacturing jobs back to Northeast Ohio and committed to continuing our history of support in the community,” Malson said. For more information, contact Ramco Specialties Inc. at 5369 Hudson Drive, Hudson, OH 44236.
