A letter from the President regarding Threaded Fasteners COVID-19 Response

March 18, 2020

To our business partners,

The Threaded Fasteners mission is to create value in and for the people we serve, and we are continuing our mission during this time. Every location is open to receive and ship orders, we do not foresee any stop in this service. We do not anticipate any pauses in our supply chain nor our shipments. Our teams are taking every precaution to follow the current CDC regulations as they are updated. Our team is dedicated to serving our customers with the same level of quality that you have come to expect during our 41 years of service.


We have made the following adjustments to our procedures:

Walk In Business: For the safety of our employees and customers our walk-in business is currently paused. We will accept orders by phone, email, EDI, or website requests only and will furnish dock side service pickup for those orders.

Outside Sales: Our outside sales team will be working from our offices to support their local branches. They will continue to provide exceptional service to our customers as needed.

Office Guests: Our teams are asking that people refrain from entering our locations unless previously approved for the safety of our communities.

Shipments: All shipments will continue as scheduled. The safety of our drivers and our customers’ teams are our priority. Each driver has been asked to follow the requested procedures asked of them by customers and to follow all CDC recommended hygiene practices.


In closing, our mission has never been more relevant to these times, we will continue to create value in and for the people we serve. To all our employee owners and business partners our commitment remains the same. We are not expecting any disruption regarding the delivery of any of our products or services. We are monitoring all local, state, and federal authority’s recommendations regarding

COVID-19 and will follow those accordingly for us to make fact-based decisions.

Message from the President – We Are Growing Again!

January 5, 2018

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.

Thanksgiving Message from Billy Duren

November 22, 2017

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Besides enjoying turkey and pumpkin pie, it’s a day when everyone can stop for a moment and reflect on what they have to be grateful for. I was telling one of our young team members recently, I never want to lose the sense of awe I feel about what we do. Even today, with more than 37 years here at Threaded Fasteners, I continue to feel an overwhelming sense of gratitude for those we work with and those we serve. 

Our employee-owned company was blessed to be founded by two people who set great examples for all of us. Frank Martin and Steve Sholtis are men of integrity who believe in treating people fairly and sharing with others. They are givers. We were fortunate to be able to see our company receive blessings because of how Frank and Steve ran the business. Now, it’s our turn.

Today, through the Threaded Fasteners Charitable Foundation, we continue to support several charities close to our hearts. We also encourage our staff — and everyone else — to find ways to give back whenever they can. We do it because we have been blessed with resources and it’s the right thing to do. 

As Thanksgiving approaches, we hope you find time for reflection and much to be thankful for.
