Your timeline becomes our deadline!
Bolts are often the last product ordered on a construction project but the first thing needed. You can’t pour a concrete foundation or erect a steel structure without them. Consequently, bolt deliveries are critical to keeping a project on schedule and expedited lead times are commonplace.
Who can wait?

Restoring such a valuable part of Pennsylvania’s rich history of wooden covered bridges required the efforts of a custom bolt manufacturer like us. We supplied a range of sizes, styles, and grades of 100% domestic bolts, nuts, and washers for the project, as required by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.
More formally known as the Schuylkill County Bridge #14, Zimmerman’s Bridge is a registered historic wooden covered bridge nestled in the dense foliage of Schuylkill County. It spans 50 feet across a small fishing stream, allowing passage over the Susquehanna tributary since 1875. The nearly 150-year-old bridge was built using a Burr Truss style of construction employing both an arch and multiple kingposts.
