Hall of Fame at the International Fastener Expo Announced

"Industry veterans and thought leaders Bob Sachs and Robbie Gilchrist are added to the list of honored inductees for the 2018 IFE Awards."

Los Angeles, CA (August 17, 2018) – The International Fastener Expo (IFE) has announced the winners of the 2018 Hall of Fame Awards. Each year, The Fastener Hall of Fame recognizes industry professionals who have made significant and enduring contributions to the industrial fastener industry on a national or global scale. In addition to their contributions, the award recipients are selected on the role they have played in the industry, their leadership skills in administrative and policy areas, and the educational contributions they have made to their companies and staff. This year’s latest recipients, Bob Sachs and Robbie Gilchrist, will join other honored industry members, including but not limited to inventors, business leaders, and educators.

To make this year’s selection IFE once again enlisted the assistance of the Fastener Industry Coalition (FIC) to review all nominations and determine this year’s winners. FIC selected Mr. Bob Sachs, President and CEO of XL Screw Corporation, and Mr. Robbie Gilchrist, President, of Capital Marketing.

About The Award Recipients


Bob Sachs, XL Screw Corporation: Bob joined XL Screw Corporation (XL) in 1972. In 1979, Bob Sachs became a shareholder and Vice President of XL Screw Corporation. In January 2003, Bob was promoted to President and bought the company in 2005. Under Bob’s leadership, XL started leveraging technology and advanced computer systems in 1981 in order to further and grow its business. Because of their continual commitment to customer service, above standard quality in their products and speed to market, the company will be celebrating 50 years in business this November.


Robbie Gilchrist, Capital Marketing: Robbie Gilchrist is in his 47th year in the fastener business, each day communicating with many industry people. Over the decades, Robbie was President of the SEFA, serving on the board for two terms. He also served on the board of the NFDA and was a committee chair for three years, in all trying to improve the fastener industry. The greatest part of Robbie’s career has been the formation and distribution of “The Gilchrist Foundation”. The Foundation was formed after the sale of Capital Fasteners in 2000 to assist students in their continuing education. Since the inception of the scholarship endowment, 60 scholarships have been awarded to people working in the industry or family members of those working in the industry.

About The 2018 Awards

The International Fastener Expo Hall of Fame was established in 1982 to provide a prestigious and visible means to honor individuals who have made significant and enduring contributions to the industrial fastener industry on a national or global scale. Individuals selected for induction will join a list of other honored industry members, including but not limited to inventors, business leaders, and educators. Nominees are reviewed by the Fastener Industry Coalition, members of thirteen North American regional and national fastener associations concerned with the distribution, manufacture, and importation of fasteners as well as services to the fastener industry.

In addition to identifying opportunities, contributing to change leadership, and being visionaries with unimpeachable integrity and respect in the industry, winners of this award have developed innovative models and made important educational and professional contributions that advance the fastener industry as a whole. This year’s inductees will be recognized during the show’s annual IFE Awards Ceremony, located on the show floor at the Sessions Corner stage on Wednesday, October 30, 2018 from 2:30-3:30 p.m. in Las Vegas at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.
