Trade Show Season Shows Industry Drive for Recovery

Miller Products Company recently spent time at the International Fastener Expo in Las Vegas with a strong group of industry professionals focused on maintaining business and driving through post-pandemic recovery. Even with lighter attendance, the show proved the industry is ready for improvements and recovery in supply chain gaps and production to meet surging demand.


“We spent a lot of time discussing shortages in overseas supplies,” said Kerry Richardson, Marketing and Sales Manager at Miller. “{Miller’s} ability to meet demand with American-made products was something that really made a difference in the conversation.”

With shipping delays seen around the world, raw materials like aluminum and steel as well as finished products are being held up. For many manufacturers who depend on inexpensive overseas materials, supply chains are being choked to a standstill. Miller Products Company spoke to more than a half dozen companies at the show who’d made the decision to move supply acquisition to U.S. companies to address the shortages.

Alternative suppliers for stock parts, pins and fasteners are in high demand. Miller’s central Iowa location reduces shipping and turn times for manufacturers across the nation.

“This, obviously, becomes a simple solution for many industries,” said Richardson.

With Miller’s extensive stock supply, the ability to provide custom CNC and Swiss CNC machining makes Miller the perfect solution to close manufacturers’ supply chain gaps and meet the needs of the market.
