Government and Military Projects
Whether your project is for a city government, state government, agency of the federal government, or a branch of the military, Portland Bolt is the manufacturer you can trust to meet your project's domestic requirements. Whether your project falls under the ARRA, Buy American Act, the Buy America provisions of the Transportation Assistance Act, or some other type of domestic requirement, we can assist you by providing the products you need, when you need them.
Portland Bolt's manufacturing capabilities, combined with our own in-house galvanizing line, allow us to meet the most demanding lead times. Our extensive inventory of domestically produced raw material includes 12 different grades of material in 23 different diameters ranging from 1/2" through 3-1/2" . Portland Bolt also stocks an unparalleled line of domestic nuts and washers to complement the bolts we manufacture.
Portland Bolt performs in-house mechanical, hardness, and rotational capacity testing. For federally funded highway projects, we only provide products which are 100% domestic and fully traceable. We include the most comprehensive and accurate certification package in the industry which is stored electronically should you ever require additional copies.
The products required by these types of projects are as diverse and varied as the market segment itself. Whether it is anchor bolts, tie-rod assemblies, custom plates, swedged rods, timber bolts, hex bolts, anchor rods, templates, or another type of custom fastener, we can help.
In early 2012, the contractor performing the demolition and replacement of Pier 12 at the U.S. Naval Base in San Diego, California contacted Portland Bolt. The job required the demolition of the existing pier, installation of new piles, a fish enhancement structure (FES), and a new, larger pier. As part of this construction, the contractor needed high strength clamping rods that would be used to attach temporary scaffolding and forms to the concrete pilings.
Portland Bolt manufactured over 1,100 of these high strength ASTM A354 Grade BD rods for the project as well as supplying the associated domestic nuts and washers from our extensive inventory. While the high strength rods for this project were not galvanized due to the high strength material required and the possibility for hydrogen embrittlement, Portland Bolt is perfectly suited to supply marine projects like this due to our in-house galvanizing line and our long experience with marine construction bolts.

Built in 1935 by the Tennessee Valley Authority and maintained and operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Kentucky Lock and Dam handles 50 million tons of barged cargo every year traveling up and down the Tennessee River. The Kentucky Lock Addition project was needed to increase the lock’s capacity to handle larger barges and heavier barge traffic with the construction of a new 1,200 foot lock. Construction on the project was originally started in 1998 but had been put on hold since 2009 due to lack of available funding. In 2011 the project was resumed after the award of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds. Read more...
