FINDER CELEBRATES 50 YEARS IN BUSINESS In 1969, Bernie Finder had already been in the fastener business for twenty four years. He started BFA as a small, one desk company at his home in Glencoe, IL. There were no frills and no guarantees that the business would make it. But Bernie knew one important thing - he was a great people person. And as they say, the rest is history! Mark Finder joined the company in 1973 and over the next several years we built BFA into one of the largest manufacturer’s representative agencies in MARK FINDER Chicago. In 1996 Maurizio Furlan joined the company and in 2001 we opened our warehouse with Cecilia Parker as our office manager Unfortunately, after a long illness, Bernie passed away on February 9, 1999. As of 2019, Maurizio, Cecilia and Mark are the core elements of B. Finder Associates, Inc. We want to take this opportunity to thank our valuable distributors throughout the country for your business and hope to continue serving you for many years to come. BUSINESS FOCUS ARTICLE B.
