Since 1987, Thomas Smith Fasteners has led the UK in industrial fasteners, fixings, nuts and bolts and allied engineering products.
We are a major worldwide distributor of standard and specialised industrial fasteners in both Metric and Imperial (BSW, BSF, BA, UNC & UNF) threadforms.
Sites located in Wigan, Greater Manchester and Glasgow, Scotland, mean that we are ideally positioned to rapidly distribute fasteners throughout the UK and worldwide.
Thomas Smith Fasteners sets the standard for high quality industrial fasteners and fixings – our vast product range offers a one stop shop for nuts, bolts, washers, screws, allthread, engineer studs, studbolts, pins, rivets and many more related items. To complement our range of screwed fasteners, we stock full nuts, nylon insert nuts, long nuts and all metal self locking nuts.
We hold in excess of 200 tonnes of finished BSF, BSW, UNF & UNC nuts and bolts in stock. In addition we hold large stocks of semi-finished blanks that can be converted quickly for special size requirements.
Our state of the art factory in Hindley Green, Greater Manchester contains onsite manufacturing facilities, enabling us to produce a vast array of special fasteners as well as older, harder to find British threadforms such as BSW & BSF.
Our capabilities range from traditional forging methods through to cutting edge high tech, and include induction heated hot forging, cold forming, precision CNC machining and thread rolling, meaning that we can supply nuts, bolts and fasteners in low, medium or high volumes to fulfil the customer’s exact requirements.
We are able to supply fasteners in a wide range of materials and grades. Materials include:
Surface finishes are used to provide anti-corrosion resistance, a decorative finish or improve torqueing properties.
Some popular surface finishes include Zinc, Galvanised, Sherardized, Electroless Nickel, Dacromet, Geomet & PTFE. We can advise you on the best surface treatment to suit your application.
We are fully accredited to BS EN ISO 9001:2008 and constantly strive towards continuous improvement. We operate lean principles, monitor and analyse KPIs and work in partnership with our valued customers and approved suppliers to offer the best, most efficient service possible.
