Q: I ordered fasteners from Portland Bolt that I no longer need. Does Portland Bolt accept returns?
A: Yes, we accept returns on items that we inventory, with a few exceptions and limitations.
We try to be as accommodating as possible when it comes to returning product. We realize that when product is ordered incorrectly or simply can’t be used for various reasons, these situations may create financial hardships. Therefore, we will attempt to work with companies to return product even if it does not meet the requirements listed in our guidelines for returning product. Unfortunately, there will be instances where we simply cannot accept returns, which normally include custom manufactured products or items that are not in a resellable condition. Our Returned Goods FAQ explains our policy in detail. However, no policy is etched in stone. Let us know the details, and we will make every attempt to work with you on a case-by-case basis.
Fadhili Gas-Fired CHP Plant
Al Jubail, Eastern Province, Saudi Arabia
Financial closure for the Fadhili Gas-Fired Combined Heat and Power Plant project was achieved in January 2017. Shortly after financing was secured, the awarded contractor reached out to Portland Bolt to provide the anchor bolts and embedded plates for the project.
With an ambitious schedule for the plant to be operating in November of 2019, every day of lead time was crucial. Portland Bolt produced and shipped over 100,000 lbs. of anchor bolts and plates in various releases according to the critical path of the job. The project, located in Saudi Arabia, required special packaging, assembly, and marking to conform to the Saudi government’s requirements for importing steel materials.
Aloha Stadium is the home field for the University of Hawaii Rainbow Warriors and is used for many other events. Portland Bolt provided the structural tension tie rods for the lower level concourse and the tie down anchors for the transporters on this recent renovation project.
