Women in the fastener industry

In
many technical and engineering jobs there is a very noticeable lack of
women in the workforce. The same goes for the fastener industry. There
is a new program that is hoping to rectify this and we are very excited
about it. We could always use more women in the field and this is a
great way for women to get the training they need to enter into this
exciting line of work!
