The organization’s objective is to elevate the level of technical understanding and the expertise of individuals in the fastener industry, worldwide.

History

FTI started in the early 1970s as part of Los Angeles Fastener Association (LAFA). The founding organizers realized that individually, no one had the capacity to train new employees but collectively, they could offer solid education. So began the first basic industry training classes. In 2014, FTI became a standalone, registered 501(c)(6) nonprofit – and transitioned from a regional association to a national and international training platform.
