Limiting Disruption
In the Transportation Industry

Over-the-road freight hauling is one of the most vital components of the transportation industry. And the last thing you need is for one of your vehicles to be off the road. We manufacture specialty fasteners for railroads, buses, recreational vehicles, and a large variety of heavy equipment. Big Bolt carries and manufactures a number of high-quality fasteners for the entire transportation industry. So, whether you repair trucks and trailers or you are an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), we can provide the fasteners you need, even if they have to be designed to precise specifications.

Growing Midwest Manufacturer Turns to Trusted Fastener Supplier

When a commercial trucking manufacturer was expanding, Big Bolt was there to help them grow and succeed.

Expansion Runs Into Logistical Issues

When a regional Midwest manufacturer of commercial trucking equipment made its first acquisition, it inherited two additional manufacturing facilities overnight. Each facility had different production lines, very specific fastener requirements and separate regional suppliers already set up. Managing three distinct purchasing workstreams quickly turned into a logistical nightmare.

Setting Up Purchasing Process with One Supplier

The manufacturer turned to Big Bolt, and we were able to review their current purchasing at all three facilities and set up a centralized program with one point of contact.
