MACHESNEY PARK, Ill. (WIFR) - What does a local company say after reaching an impressive national sales milestone? Well Field Fastener employees may be saying “gracias” as they all prepare for a trip to Mexico.
In December the global fastener distributor reached 100 million dollars in sales; a goal that was originated nine years ago when Field Fastener sales stood at about 20 million dollars. And to celebrate, brothers and owners Jim and Bill Berry decided to splurge on a trip to Cancun, Mexico for the entire company in May. Jim Derry says this helps to create a positive culture.
"The culture allows us to find and keep the best people,” said Derry “And if we have the best people, and a clear plan and we execute on that plan; and just really get out of the way and let people do what they do best, we can really be successful."
Field Fastener serves over 1,500 customers worldwide and has locations in Machesney Park, Tyler, Texas, Florence, South Carolina; as well as locations in Taiwan and several in Mexico
