According to our native Alaskan sales representative, Amanda Seal, Alaska has only two seasons… winter and construction! Due to the shortened window in which the weather is conducive to building, there is a heightened urgency to deliver and install construction materials in the “Land of the Midnight Sun.”
Portland Bolt averages more than 350 shipments to Alaska each year and has provided bolts for many projects, including:
- The Alaska Airlines Center
- Joe Redington School
- The MLP Power Plant
Portland Bolt is the perfect choice for fast-track construction projects in Alaska. Our geographical proximity, large stock of common construction fasteners, and in-house galvanizing capability make us uniquely qualified to provide fasteners to Alaska.
Do you have a project in Alaska, or any other part of the world for that matter, that requires large, nonstandard anchor bolts or construction fasteners? If so, contact Amanda or one of our other experienced sales representatives.
