As 2016 comes to a close and the promise of a happy and prosperous New Year awaits us, it is time for reflection and anticipation. It’s time to look back and relive those moments and reflect on how we fared, while being aware that another year – full of challenges and opportunities – is in the offing.

Every individual, group, and organisation aspires to grow, and as long as you are on that upward trajectory, there is reason to believe that you are doing well. Given, the growth may not be what you expected, or it can be so massive that you are simply overwhelmed, but being consistent and resilient is what makes one weather the roughs in life and in business.

Piedmont Fasteners Inc. completed another successful year, and it will be an understatement to say that it was extraordinary. The tremendous growth in both Small Business and Large Scale Manufacturing sectors has really humbled us. Although we have the staggering growth figures on what we achieved in 2016, we believe this is not the platform or the time for all that. Instead we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who put their invaluable trust in us.

As an organisation that caters to clients from all around the Triad, we got a first-hand account of the diversity in manufacturing that makes this area such an interesting place. From Hickory to Raleigh and Rockingham County to Richmond County, we experienced how quickly our customers are growing, and how we – through our fast delivery and massive inventory – were part of that journey. Our own story was intertwined with those of our clients, and every time they wrote a testimonial or sent a ‘thank you’ note, it gave us the confidence that we were making a difference.

2016 indeed will be special to us, as years down the line, when we look back, we’ll remember it as a year that gave wings to our dreams. As we bid adieu to 2016 and welcome 2017, we leave you with this beautiful quote by Jonas Salk,

“There is hope in dreams, imagination, and in the courage of those who wish to make those dreams a reality.”

Thank You!
