Tom’s entry into the fastener industry began as a rep for Hilti Fastening Systems. After several years with Hilti, Tom was hired by Cleveland Cap Screw of Cleveland, OH as a sales engineer responsible for a four-state Midwest territory. Tom then joined Crown Screw and Bolt Corp where he worked as a sales rep and eventually sales manager until they closed their doors in 1983. Instead of looking for a job with another fastener company, Tom decided the time was right to open his own business and started Universal Fastener Corp with his brother-in-law. He eventually sold his interest in Universal to give 100% of his attention to K&L Sales.
