|Segment Reporting [Abstract]|
|Segment Reporting and Geographic Information||
The Company's segment reporting structure uses the Company's management reporting structure as the foundation for how the Company manages its business. The Company periodically evaluates its segment reporting structure in accordance with ASC 350-20-55 and has concluded that it has three reportable segments as of December 26, 2020.
The segments are as follows:
•Hardware and Protective Solutions
•Robotics and Digital Solutions
The Hardware and Protective Solutions segment distributes fasteners and related hardware items, threaded rod, personal protective equipment, and letters, numbers, and signs to hardware stores, home centers, mass merchants, and other retail outlets primarily in the United States and Mexico.
The Robotics and Digital Solutions segment consists of key duplication and engraving kiosks that can be operated directly by the consumer. The kiosks operate in retail and other high-traffic locations offering customized licensed and unlicensed products targeted to consumers in the respective locations. It also includes our associate-assisted key duplication systems and key accessories. The Robotics and Digital Solutions segment also includes Resharp, our robotic knife sharpening business, and Instafob, which specializes in RFID key duplication technology.
The Canada segment distributes fasteners and related hardware items, threaded rod, keys, key duplicating systems, accessories, personal protective equipment, and identification items, such as tags and letters, numbers, and signs to hardware stores, home centers, mass merchants, industrial distributors, automotive aftermarket distributors, and other retail outlets and industrial Original Equipment Manufacturers (“OEMs”) in Canada. The Canada segment also produces fasteners, stampings, fittings, and processes threaded parts for automotive suppliers and industrial OEMs.
The Company uses profit or loss from operations to evaluate the performance of its segments, and does not include segment assets or non-operating income/expense items for management reporting purposes. Profit or loss from operations is defined as income from operations before interest and tax expenses. Segment revenue excludes sales between segments, which is consistent with the segment revenue information provided to the Company's chief operating decision maker ("CODM").
In the year ended December 29, 2018 the Company acquired Minute Key and Big Time (see Note 5 - Acquisitions of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information). Minute Key is included in our Robotics and Digital Solutions segment while Big Time is included in our Hardware and Protective Solutions segment.
