Many accidents, and even deaths, from falling in the United States are preventable with the right training. Even using a ladder necessitates training in the correct ways of use and ways to prevent falls. “Over 100,000 accidents from falls occur each year,” United Tool and Fastener Safety Training Specialist and OSHA Outreach Instructor, Charlie Gertson, said.

UTF San Antonio Continues Legacy of Giving

UTF San Antonio
For at least the last ten years, United Tool and Fastener, San Antonio, has participated in “Construct a Kid’s Christmas,” which is administered by Construction News.

Form and Function Combined into DeWalt DCN890 Concrete Nailer

DCN890 Concrete Nailer
The DeWalt DCN890 Concrete Nailer comprises form and function. In the past, options for driving nails into concrete included nailing by hand or using a powder-actuated tool which required a specific certification to use gun powder rounds to drive nails into the concrete. A compressed-gas nailer was created; however, its drawback included continually having to buy the gas cartridges, thus increasing the cost of a job or project.

United Tool & Fastener: Doing it Our Way and Profiting

I have worked for UT&F for several years now and still love my job. I enjoy helping my customers obtain the products they need. I have developed lifelong friendships with my customers. I also like the people I work with. We are more than co-workers; to me they are like family.

Through the past 20 years, I have worked with Bill Mhoon of United Tool & Fastener. He has always been very helpful and has always done a very good job! If necessary, Bill will put whatever it is you bought in his pick-up truck and personally deliver it to you. If he can’t fix a problem, he will advise you on the best way to solve the problem-even if it’s working with a competitor. A big thumbs up to Bill and UTF!
