The 2016 NIFMSE Fastener Show Report

Apex at NIFMSE Show

This was our first year at the NIFMSE show which had record attendance from an international audience.

To make a good impression with the industrial fastener industry, we unveiled the ACTYLUS™ 8100/8200, the newest automated inventory replenishment system from Apex Supply Chain Technologies®.

New ACTYLUS Wins Fastener News Desk Award
Attendees were impressed. In fact, we’re humbled to announce our ACTYLUS 8100/8200 smart bin system won the “Best New Technology” award from Fastener News Desk.

“We were very impressed with Actylus,” the news site reported in its review of companies that stood out on the show floor. “This is where the Internet of Things (IoT) advances vendor management capabilities for the fastener industry. Apex changes the way business functions.”

The ACTYLUS smart bin systems eliminate stock outs, bin checks and safety stock. Our newest models are compact for deployment in assembly and compact manufacturing cell applications. And with the Apex Trajectory Cloud™ platform, distributors gain 24/7 visibility into real-time customer inventory status regardless of their location.

Distributors Tap Apex to Gain Competitive Edge
The efficiency and productivity gains this brings distributors can help them grow their existing business and generate new customers. We enjoyed talking with distributors at the show as they look to simplify low-tech, inefficient processes to stay competitive.

We concluded our first year at the nation’s largest fastener show by securing booth space for next year. Here’s to an even better NIFMSE show in 2017.

And below is a summary of the social media conversation from this year’s show.
