Visiting The 2014 STAFDA Show
November 11, 2014
You were probably surprised to see there wasn't a new NGD blog post yesterday. Well, we're making up for it today, now that we're back from STAFDA.
To summarize the entire 2014 STAFDA show, we would have to write a book. With several hundred exhibitors - and many more attendees - STAFDA is a mecca for the tool and fastener industry. Every year, the Specialty Tools & Fasteners Distributors Association (STAFDA) puts on the event, hosting the convention in various cities across the U.S.
This year, STAFDA visited Charlotte, NC. Home to the NASCAR Hall of Fame and other attractions, here's a brief overview of NGD's trip to North Carolina.
From Senco, STAFDA served as the launching point for two new tools, the RoofPro 445XP and the SCN63LDXP structural foam insulation nailer. MAX displayed their completely refreshed CN565S2 coil siding nailer - and Jaaco featured their ballistic pin tool (designed for fastening foam board to wood, steel and concrete - with available nosepiece attachments for washers).
We also got the chance to view and demo some new and exciting product lines - including products that are still in the concept phase. For 2015, look for new tools from Grex, Fasco, BeA, Everwin, Omer and many of your other favorite brands. Look for expanded product offerings on NGD as well - with new attachments, compressors and accessories coming to the site. For those interested in automated fastening solutions, we have something special in the works as well.
