Thomas Smith Fasteners has recently experienced further export success by supplying imperial fasteners to China.
Manager Gary Stevens said: ‘We are pleased to receive orders from China & over the last few years we have exported to more than 40 countries worldwide. Recently we have found that we are getting more enquiries for British made products and with our manufacturing facilities on site we are able to supply to customer requirements with all the relevant certificates. This shows that overseas customers still have confidence in the high quality of British manufacture. The order we received from China was to replace all the old fasteners in a British made milling machine. The old bolts were BSW and BSF imperial threadforms which we could make within the specified delivery of 2 weeks’.
The company’s main sales base is in the Greater Manchester area. Thomas Smith Fasteners holds large stocks of metric & imperial fasteners, offering a 24-hour turnaround service with specials manufactured to order.
Mixed kits of stainless steel bolts, nuts and washers have now been added in UNC, UNF and Metric threadforms. In addition to our stainless range, we also sell BSW, BSF, UNC, UNF and Metric mixed packs in standard high tensile carbon steel.
All of our kits are available in three pack sizes for your convenience – 105 pieces, 326 pieces and 540 pieces.
These packs are a convenient, great value way of keeping an assortment of metric and imperial bolts, nuts and fasteners to hand.
We are not just an online shop! We have been specialists in fastener supply since 1987 and our sister company is one of the oldest bolt manufacturers in the UK, dating back to the 1800s. We understand that sometimes its preferable to speak to someone about your purchase and we are equally happy to take orders over the telephone. If you’d prefer to speak to somebody, please call our sales staff on 01942 520260 and we’ll be happy to help.
These large 2″ BSW (Whitworth) x 7″ Hexagon Setscrews were produced in our onsite machine shop using a CNC, and are a good example of how our special fastener manufacturing capabilities complement our extensive stocked range of standard industrial fasteners and fixings.
We stock standard sizes of bolts, nuts and fasteners in Metric, BSW (Whitworth), BSF, BA, UNC and UNF threadforms, and can manufacture non-standard sizes in most materials, grades and surfaces finishes. We also offer in-house quality testing facilities and are fully accredited to ISO 9001:2008.
We export nuts, bolts and fasteners worldwide – these hexagon bolts were produced for a construction firm in Austria.
