Spirol International Corporation
30 Rock Ave.
Danielson, CT, 06239 1434

Press release date: April 24, 2014

Danielson CT, USA - On February 6, 2014, SPIROL International Corporation was pleased to host the New England Fastener Distributors Association (NEFDA) at their North American headquarters in Danielson, Connecticut, USA. SPIROL has been an active member of the NEFDA for over ten years. As part of the NEFDA’s mission, they aim to advance the interest of the Fastener Industry by promoting the distribution of fasteners through those who will upgrade the image of the industry. SPIROL’s National Distribution Sales Manager, Michael Lentini, was pleased to host the NEFDA with the primary goal of furthering the distributors’ understanding of all of the reasons companies should partner with SPIROL.

SPIROL’s Market Development Manager, Christie Jones, delivered an interactive presentation which included a review of the industries and common applications that use SPIROL’s products, an overview of SPIROL’s global locations, and a comprehensive review of SPIROL’s vast product lines and engineering services. After the presentation, the group went onto the production floor where they were able to tour the entire manufacturing facility starting at the raw material warehouse, through the metal forming and metal cutting operations, heat treat, finishing, sorting and packaging departments. They also visited SPIROL’s Installation Equipment Showroom.

Upon completion of the tour, the group enjoyed a delicious lunch and engaged in conversation with SPIROL’s CEO, Jeffrey Koehl. Mr. Koehl notified the group that due to a significant increase in sales volume, SPIROL is embarking on a 30,000 square foot addition to their Connecticut operations. This major expansion will include a complete overhaul of the existing manufacturing facility and the addition of a completely new secondary operations line in addition to many other pieces of new equipment. Mr. Koehl made clear that SPIROL is completely committed to undertaking this expansion without having it impact service to their customers whatsoever. In order to make sure that this expansion is absolutely seamless, the project will take place over a period of two years.

In a follow up letter written by Joseph Soja, Managing Consultant of the NEFDA, he wrote “On behalf of the NEFDA, I want to thank you for arranging the impressive tour of SPIROL International Corporation. Everyone remarked how much they learned about the company and its vast range of products.” He went on to say: “It was nice of Jeff Koehl to take the time to have lunch with us. I wish more CEO’s shared his philosophy of community and people. He made us all feel right at home. This is one of the best tours I have been on. You are very fortunate to be working for this sensational company!” SPIROL was equally pleased to host this event with the NEFDA, and looks forward to hosting similar events in the future to provide a better understanding of the organization, to network with new and existing customers, and above all, to proudly share an inside look at the hard work, good spirit and commitment to reinvesting back into the business that makes SPIROL as successful as they are today!

Attendants from the NEFDA include: Joseph Soja and Margaret Soja the Managing Consultant and Assistant Managing Consultant of NEFDA; Todd Marin, Jonathon Xu, Richard Fohlbrook and Jon Queenin from Specialty Bolt Screw; Sarah Patell and Lesley Carr from Northeast Fasteners; Richard Paladino and Heidi Carpe from All-Tech Specialty Fasteners; Ken Gruhl and Joel Koppe from Metric & Multistandard Components Corp; David Stefanelli and Brian Meduinn from Electronic Fasteners; Chuck Karalekas from Arnold Industries; John Sullivan from Accurate Fasteners and Rich Rudolph from Rick Rudolph Associates.
