Birmingham Fastener is hosting Steelday activities

  •  Birmingham Fastener Inc. to Host Open House in Birmingham on September 23 – All Welcome 

     Architects, engineers, contractors, students, and any other interested party will have the opportunity to visit, tour, and interact with Birmingham Fastener and its employees as they host a SteelDay 2011 event on September 23.

     SteelDay 2011, hosted by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), is the third annual national event dedicated to providing accessibility to the latest happenings in the structural steel industry. SteelDay events such as facility tours, educational seminars, and jobsite visits are scheduled across the U.S. to showcase how the structural steel industry contributes to build America. Last year’s SteelDay events were held at more than 190 different locations all over the country and more than nine out of ten hosts said they planned to participate again in 2011. 

      “SteelDay gives you an appreciation for what goes into your design – and [the steel industry’s] efforts to recycle and be environmentally friendly”, commented Rick Miles, P.E., a SteelDay attendee and senior engineer at Sparks Engineering, Inc, in Round Rock, Texas.

     Birmingham Fastener will be offering plant tours during the open house. The event is free of charge and begins at 10 am September 23rd.  During the tour, attendees will see cold headed and hot forged fasteners being produced, as well as the many other processes involved.   

     More information on SteelDay can be found at  Details on registration and what this year’s events have to offer will continually be updated on the site.  For questions please contact Ed Self (
