Friends and colleagues,

We have great news to share. Threaded Fasteners is expanding again. For several months, our leadership team has been working with Bob Cornett, the founder and owner of Bolt & Nut Inc. in Tampa, Fla., to acquire his privately-held company.

Mr. Bob and his wife founded the business in 1977 and successfully ran the operation through the end of 2017. We felt honored that he selected Threaded Fasteners for this merger of two teams who value Christian principles, strong work ethics and excellent customer service.

On Jan. 5, 2018, the merger with Bolt & Nut Inc. was official. That means our staff already in Tampa will join forces with an additional 21 people on the manufacturing and sales teams there in a 50,000 square-foot space located near the University of South Florida and Bush Gardens. It’s a great new location for us and offers a wonderful opportunity to expand our reach in Florida and the Southeastern United States.

We look forward to sharing more good news with you during 2018.

Blessings,

Billy Duren

MOBILE, Ala. (January 5, 2018 – Threaded Fasteners Inc. (TFI), an employee owned business specializing in the manufacturing, custom packaging and distribution of steel fasteners, has acquired Bolt & Nut Inc., a Florida-based manufacturer and distributor of fasteners founded in 1977 in Tampa, FL.

Threaded Fasteners Inc. is joining forces with the Bolt & Nut sales and manufacturing teams to create an even more dynamic platform to serve commercial and industrial clients in Florida and the Southeastern U.S., said TFI president Billy Duren.

In 2013, Threaded Fasteners opened a location in Tampa on Currie Davis Drive. After Jan. 5, 2018, the TFI team will merge with the 21-member Bolt & Nut Inc. staff to do business at the Bolt & Nut location on 46th Street. The facility offers more than 45,000 square feet of manufacturing space and 5,000 square feet for sales offices.

Bolt & Nut Inc. Founder and Owner, Bob Cornett said a shared belief in Christian values paved the way for the acquisition of Bolt & Nut Inc. by Mobile, Ala.-based Threaded Fasteners.

While other businesses approached Cornett about selling his manufacturing firm over the years, the timing, he said, had never been right until now.

“From the first time I met Billy (Duren, TFI President) and David (Spurlock, TFI Senior Vice-President), we had a common bond and that was the Lord,” Cornett said in a December 2017 interview. “It was truth right off the bat. If it hadn’t been for the Lord, I don’t think this would have ever happened.” (Photo: Bob Cornett)

Duren said it is the goal for Threaded Fasteners Inc. to continue building on the solid foundation and principles Cornett spent four decades cultivating in Tampa and across the globe. 

“Bob Cornett has such an incredible story of success you just can’t help but be intrigued,” Duren said. “I’ve discovered Mr. Bob’s word is as good as a 40-page legal contract. I have come to greatly admire him and in the past few months we have forged a genuine friendship.”  

With nearly 53 years in the manufacturing business, Cornett believes now is a great time to invest in Florida. The Tampa Bay area is experiencing tremendous growth in the form of long-term construction projects and other initiatives.

“I see tremendous potential in this area,” Cornett said of southwest Florida. “I think there’s going to be a boom for at least the next five to eight years.”
