WIFI – Women in the Fastener Industry For Immediate Release: February 2022

WIFI honors the memory of Margaret Davis of ISSCO, INC/BTM Manufacturing with a new scholarship for 2022, which Fastener Fair USA has graciously provided.  Some of the best women have led the way for all women in the fastener industry and Margaret is one of these amazing ladies.  Margaret started her career in the fastener industry at Kansas City Nut & Bolt back in the 1960’s, where she also met her future husband, Joe L. Davis Jr.  Together they started ISSCO, INC., a wholesale fastener distributor on April 1, 1974, where Margaret served as Secretary-Treasurer for over 26 years.  She was certainly the matriarch of the family business, and truly enjoyed working with her husband and two sons, David, and Jake Davis.  As ISSCO begins to celebrate its 48th year in business, we know we would not be the company we are today without the leadership of Margaret.

Scholarship application submission will offer WIFI Members requesting financial assistance to attend Fastener Fair USA 2022 in Detroit, May 16, 2022 – May 19, 2022. Travel, accommodations, and entrance to the show will be provided. The recipient is required to work at the WIFI show booth.

Scholarship submission deadline: April 4th, 2022
