Surrey, BC, Canada
In September of 2010, Portland Bolt supplied galvanized 1-1/2” diameter A449 all thread rod with nuts and washers that were all made in the United States to conform to a manufactured in North American requirement. The high strength all thread rod was used in a bridge bearing for the new Port Mann Bridge that crosses the Fraser River in Surrey, British Columbia. The bridge was opened for traffic on September 18, 2012, and at the time, it was the second longest cable-stayed bridge in North America and the widest bridge in the entire world until the completion of the new Bay Bridge in San Francisco, California. Due to the critical nature of where and how the high strength rods were to be used in the bearing of the bridge, Portland Bolt was selected to supply quality product made domestically in North America in a timely fashion. Portland Bolt routinely ships to projects and construction sites in Canada (and all over the world) and was privileged to be an integral supplier for an important and crucial construction project that impacts so many lives.
