6 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S

6 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK ND Industries is pleased to announce that Luis Gonzales has been hired as General Manager of its Arlington, TX facility. He is taking over the position from Dan Conner, who recently announced his retirement. Dan has worked at ND Industries since 1988 and played an integral role in making ND one of the current leaders in the fastener locking and sealing industry. ND Industries wishes Dan all the best while he enjoys a well-deserved retirement. As General Manager of the Southwestern Fastener Processing Division, Luis will be overseeing all production in this facility with a strong focus on lean manufacturing. Luis will draw on his extensive production line process expertise, logistics background, and fastener coating experience to drive continuous improvements. Luis is planning to overhaul the production equipment to increase reliability and output. ND Industries President Mike Garofalo welcomes the improvements that Luis Gonzales will be implementing. “We’re always looking for ways to increase operational efficiencies. Luis brings with him a vast amount of experience streamlining production processes.” Luis’ previous work includes an eight-year role as production manager for LATICRETE International, where he introduced lean practices to seven of their manufacturing facilities, increasing production by an average of 16%. He was also a production/maintenance manager at a Dura-Tech composite coating processing plant, where his production equipment improvements led to a significant increase in production.

On August 10th, 1992, answering a newspaper ad, a 23-year-old machinist walked into his interview wearing shorts and a t-shirt. Starting as a machinist in the industry at age sixteen, over time, he had become a capable craftsman able to run every machine (nearly one-hundred in all) on the factory floor. As he transitioned into management and then into upper management, Mr. Van Linter became proficient in managing NEF’s administrative needs. He has for some time now displayed all of the exceptional qualities you could ever want in a president, and he has more than proved himself to be the right person for the job. On January 1st, 2022, nearly thirty years later, that same individual became NEF’s President. Mr. Van Linter embodies the American Dream, proving once again that hard work, dedication, and a genuine passion for what you do, can get you into places you may have never dreamed possible. NEF is now AS9100/ ISO 9001:2015 certified with a 100% standing for 8 years running. It is also an QSLM Levels 2/3 certified supplier, serving the commercial, military, aerospace and automotive markets. NEF is currently producing a size range of -00- to number 10 diameter fasteners in all types and classes, as well as M1.2 to M4.5 (metric), up to 2 inches (50mm) long.
