Paslode Industrial will be changing its name to ITW Industrial Fasteners.
The Elgin, Ill.-based manufacturer is a subsidiary company of Illinois Tool Works and manufactures both the Paslode and Duo-Fast brands.
“Our new organizational name was precipitated by the segmentation of Paslode into two separate businesses -- Paslode Construction and Paslode Industrial,” said Bruce Jacobs, general manager of ITW Industrial Fasteners. “Each of these businesses has its own business model and strategies and focuses on different trades. Our name change to ITW Fastening underscores these differences and helps eliminate confusion.”
Jacobs added that the company will operate under a separate database system as well.
ITW Industrial Fasteners is a worldwide manufacturer of wood-to-wood fastening systems and has more than 450 distributors and dealers worldwide.
