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.”

Threaded Fasteners story turns into mighty role nationwide | AL.com

Threaded Fasteners Inc. (TFI) — a 140-member employee-owned firm — operates a manufacturing plant in Semmes, Ala., where anchor bolts …

Mobile, Ala. (November 13, 2017) – Threaded Fasteners Inc. (TFI), an employee owned business specializing in the manufacturing, custom packaging and distribution of fasteners, recently acquired the vast inventory of a Mississippi-based fastener firm — some 111 pallets of materials totaling more than a million parts – which is immediately available for its customers across North America.  

The stock, purchased from an out-of-state business shifting its focus, included more than 5,000 different types of parts, all transported to Threaded Fasteners National Headquarters in Crichton, Alabama.

“All of our other locations now have access to the extra inventory,” said Jerrad Douberly, Vice President for Commercial Sales at Threaded Fasteners. “It’s ready to be distributed across the country as soon as our customers need it.”

Threaded Fasteners Inc. maintains more than 42 million individual parts in stock to meet the global needs of its clients. 

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.

Mobile, AL (October 12, 2017) –Threaded Fasteners, Inc. (TFI), an employee owned business specializing in the manufacturing, custom packaging and distribution of steel fasteners recently welcomed Stateline Fasteners of Rossville, Ga., to its growing family of businesses.

“Stateline’s entire team will be joining forces with the TFI team already established in Chattanooga, Tenn., to serve our expanding market in Tennessee and north Georgia,” said Billy Duren, president of Threaded Fasteners, Inc. “Stateline’s staff brings a wealth of knowledge to our company. With this new customer-base we look forward to broadening our footprint in the region.”

Opened in 2016, TFI’s Chattanooga office is located at 806 N. Holtzclaw Ave., Suite A. Stateline’s previous staff members are now working at this location. Inventory from the Georgia business also has been acquired by Threaded Fasteners. The TFI Chattanooga branch team can be contacted by email at infochattanooga@tfmfg.com or by calling 423-803-5535.

Founded in 1979 in Mobile, Ala., TFI marks 38 years in business in 2017 as the firm continues to expand operations and launch new ventures. With more than 140 dedicated employee owners, Threaded Fasteners has 181,000 square feet of warehouse space with over 42 million individual parts in stock at its locations in Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, Oklahoma and Tennessee to meet the global needs of its customers.
