76 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK BRYCE FASTENER INC. 1230 N. Mondel Dr., Gilbert, AZ 85233 TEL 480-503-3801 FAX 480-503-3834 EMAIL WEB BRYCE FASTENER GAINS ANOTHER PATENT TO QUICKEN FASTENER INSTALLATION TIMES Bryce Fastener Inc, an innovator of new and improved security fasteners announced the addition of a U.S. and International patent to their product line of screws, bolts, and nuts. The company developed a new tamperproof fastener called StykFit7 which combines security and high productivity, giving the installer a faster installation. StykFit7 is beneficial in high volume applications where high security and fast assembly is needed. “Torx-pin, Hex-pin, Snake Eyes, and One-Way security screws are over 50 years old, they’re not reliable in secure applications because the bittips are available to the public. There’s also no stik-fit between the drill and bit tip which slows down the installer. The market needs a new high tech screw that’s secure and fast. StykFit7 is fast indexing even while the driver bit is rotating, it’s non-magnetic so it works with Stainless and coated fasteners, it has an extreme torque threshold, and is 100% made in the U.S.A.” Bryce Campbell, President of Bryce Fastener Inc. StykFit7 is intended for Distributors looking to offer their customers an upgrade to Tam 6-lobe style security screws. Installers will find Stykfit7 is a good replacement to Tam 6-lobe due to the ease of installation. It’s also more secure because of the patented security features, which make it removable only by its proper bit. Stykfit7 bears the weight of a piece being assembled with no fumbling, dropping, or re-attaching. Can be color coated with a variety of colors from Bryce Fastener’s own Brykote which provides up to 700 hours of extra corrosion protection. Concrete, Self-Drilling, 410 Hardened Stainless, and Coating available in sizes: 3/16, ¼ or #8, #10, #12, #14. Discounted Distributor pricing available. Bryce Fastener Inc. uses outside the box techniques to improve the security fastener industry. Bryce Fastener’s machinists revive American made cold heading machines, then create new and improved security screws, bolts, and nuts. Their patented line of custom security screws called Key-Rex®, Penta- Plus®, Key-Rex Nut®, and Penta- Nut® have faithfully served over a hundred different markets for the past 10 years. They’ve developed new ways to heat treat and color coat (BryKote) more efficiently and economically. Bryce Campbell hung his first shingle 44 years ago as a fastener distributor in Seattle, Washington. He is an expert at knowing what type of fastener is the best for any application ( Determined to keep manufacturing in America, Bryce Fastener is an innovator changing the way security fasteners are made.

THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK 77 The Bossard Group is further expanding Its presence in the USA into the Northeast by signing an agreement to acquire Arnold Industries. With its outstanding product portfolio of premium fastening solutions, the US supplier fits perfectly into Bossard’s corporate strategy. Arnold Industries generates USD 40 million in sales annually and serves customers primarily in the electronics, telecommunications, medical technology and energy sectors. Bossard has been pursuing a strategy to consolidate its market position in the US for several years. The acquisition of Aero-Space Southwest, Inc. in early 2015 was an important step in this direction; acquiring Arnold Industries extends this strategy. Bossard already has a presence in a number of locations in North America, particularly in the Midwest (Iowa, Illinois), the Southeast (Georgia, Tennessee), the Southwest (Texas, Arizona) and on the west coast (California, Washington). Bossard also has subsidiaries in Canada and Mexico. The addition of Arnold Industries, headquartered in Canton, Massachusetts, solidifies Bossard’s presence in the Northeastern US. Arnold has approximately 100 employees and has subsidiaries in Ireland and China. Since its founding in 1968, Arnold Industries has continually furthered its expertise and services in the fastening technology sector. The acquisition of Arnold Industries is ideal for reinforcing Bossard’s market position in a number of different industries, especially electronics and medical technology, which are well represented in the New York and Boston metropolitan areas. Arnold Industries is also a well-recognized expert in the energy and telecommunications sectors. Its product portfolio includes a number of well-known brands which Bossard also successfully sells in other markets.
