The company’s customers include Boeing, Incora, Honeywell, Collins, Pratt & Whitney, General Electric, Lockheed Martin, and Airbus.

CalScrew’s existing management teams will be retained. They will work under Fastener President Dennis Suedkamp, and Director of Business Development Larry Valeriano, who was previously the President of CalScrew.
