DAN NELSON

DIRECTOR OF Q.E. & OPERATIONS

In 1984 Dan Nelson, our Director of Quality Engineering & Operations, was hired as Quality Control Supervisor to use his experience in Quality and Industrial Engineering to improve and maintain the quality of Micro Plastics' products. He incorporated innovative changes into our processes that greatly improved product quality and streamlined our processing efficiency.

Never tiring in his commitment to Micro Plastics and the plastic fasteners we manufacture, Dan was promoted to Quality Control Manager, then Quality Engineering Manager, and with the onset of the ISO 9000 series of standards in 1994, to Director of Quality Engineering & Operations. Here he used his in-depth knowledge of the company to spearhead the registration of our ISO 9000:2000 Quality Management System. The milestone of ISO certification for Micro was attained in September of 1996. A copy of our current cerificate can be found here.

Now with Micro Plastics for 23 years, Dan oversees our entire operation to ensure the success of the business, the superior quality of our products, and the satisfaction of meeting our customer's expectations.

SEE A DIFFERENCE?

TAKE A CLOSER LOOK

We did a tensile test of a random sample of a Micro Plastics and a Brand-X nylon hex nut on a steel thread.

The Micro Plastics part withstood an average of 213 lbs. versus 78 lbs. for the competitor's part. That's almost 3 times stronger!

When you're putting your reputation on the line, which part do you want to send to your customer?

MICRO JOINS MWFA

MID-WEST FASTENER ASSOCIATION

We are pleased to announce that we are now a member of the MWFA. We feel that this membership will be beneficial in many ways. Here's a little about the MWFA and what they do for our industry..

The MWFA is the oldest fastener association in the United States, having just celebrated their 60th anniversary in 2006. The MWFA has, over that period, expanded & evolved from a small local group, to become the largest association of it's kind with members from coast to coast.

As a result of national interest, the MWFA has adjusted its programs to reflect its commitment to growth and service to the whole fastener industry. General meetings cover specific subjects and problems facing the industry as well as universal subjects of general interest to all companies. Education programs are conducted throughout the year to continue the MWFA's efforts in educating the industry and supporting their statement "MWFA, where education is a priority."

INDUSTRIAL & CONSTRUCTION EXPO

We recently attended & exhibited at The Fastenal Industrial & Construction Expo in Orlando, FL.. The event included an Awards Dinner in which Micro Plastics placed in the top 3 in our category, this out of 300 plus suppliers.

Fastenal continues to grow as a company at a tremendous pace and is a major player in the fastener industry. Micro Plastics is excited to be a part of their upcoming stocking program in their new Indianapolis HUB warehouse. To begin with they will stock over 600 Micro Plastics' standard items and look to double that in the next year. This helping customers get what they want quickly.
