Anaheim, CA August 4, 2014 – B&B Specialties, Inc. /GS Aerospace announced today that Jon Allen has re-joined the company and will assume the responsibilities of Business Development, overseeing the development and growth of the organization’s national accounts.

Tom Rutan, Vice President of Business Development, said, “Jon’s wealth of experience and industry knowledge has already made him a key addition to the B&B Specialties, Inc. /GS Aerospace Company family. We view his appointment as a sign of our commitment to being the leading company in our industry.”
On April 25, 2014,B&B Specialties / GS Aerospace attended the 2014 AHSA Bash which was held at the Renaissance Hotel in beautiful Long Beach, California. B&B/GS attendees included Tom Rutan, VP of Business Development, Cliff Carter, Sales and Marketing Manager, and three of our Sales Representatives: Kathie Meineke, Maria Gonzalez and Stephen Read.
The 2014 AHSA Bash theme was “Bringing Back the 80’s” and everyone decided to dress the part for the event. We all looked a little ridiculous, but we also had a great time! It was very nice seeing some of our old friends, and it was truly a pleasure meeting some of the new faces in the Fastener Industry. It really is a tight knit community and that is what makes it so great to be a part of!
Special thanks to Meg Technologies for organizing the 2014 ASHA Bash! Great job as always! They made sure we all had great food, music, giveaways, and some very nice door prizes. All of us who attended can’t wait until next year!
