A Mighty Role: Made in Mobile, Threaded Fasteners Inc. Now Operates in Nine U.S. Cities in Five States with Distribution Points Across North America

MOBILE, Ala. (November 1, 2017) — There’s a company in Mobile where men and women manufacture and distribute nuts, bolts and screws that are packaged and sold to industries across North America. While the threaded fasteners can be as small as one-eighth inch in diameter, they play a mighty role in holding buildings together, making sure giant utility towers stay bolted to the ground and keeping hurricane shutters firmly in place during powerful storms.

Threaded Fasteners Inc. (TFI) — a 140-member employee-owned firm — operates a manufacturing plant in Semmes, Ala., where anchor bolts and specialty headed products are built by local crews on two-shifts to meet the growing demand for quality materials.

Founded in 1979 by brothers-in-law Frank Martin and Steve Sholtis and a handful of staff members and investors, Threaded Fasteners has grown from modest beginnings (a chop saw and a rigid pipe threader in a borrowed warehouse) to become one of the largest fastener manufacturers and steel bolt distributors in the southeast.Continue reading

I can’t imagine working anywhere else

“The best part of my day is being able to help customers and team members find solutions to challenges. It’s so satisfying to successfully work through an issue with our TFI family. I can’t imagine working anywhere else.”

– David Spurlock, Senior Vice President

Financial Advisor

“I think they have been successful because they don’t get satisfied and complacent. When Threaded Fasteners got into the power tower business they were doing well but saw an opportunity. They are constantly looking to expand and strategically grow into new geographic areas.”

“Their president is very self-reflective and aware of doing what they need to do. There’s a saying ‘What got you here won’t get you there,’ and that seems to be the philosophy that comes from the top and permeates through the entire place. They are always stretching and growing.”

“The relationship with Threaded Fasteners has meant a great deal to me over the past decade. I’ve learned from them and they challenge me in positive ways. It’s meant more to me than just how it has affected our business. They have helped me to continue to grow personally and professionally.”
