Safe Summer Travel – and the Components that Make it Possible

For many Americans, travel is a huge part of their summer plans. Spending the season on the open waters, cruising while enjoying the weather and scenery, is a favorite pastime. And while boarding these vessels and perfecting their tan, most people aren’t thinking about the components that go into shipbuilding. The same is true for the trains that bring countless American families to their destinations throughout the season.

For the ship and railroad builders, however, every component is critical, and of utmost priority is safety. Take fasteners, for instance. They’re small but crucial parts of these large modes of transportation, and safely getting from point A to point B depends on their quality.

Did you know that forensics have concluded that it might have been faulty fasteners that ultimately sunk the Titanic? While a lot of time has passed since that fateful voyage, what hasn’t changed is the importance of fasteners, and the need for quality construction and design.

At Chicago Nut & Bolt, we manufacture custom fasteners—inclusive of custom nuts, bolts, and screws—for a wide variety of industries and applications, including the ships and trains that bring people to and from their summer vacations.

We meet all specific requirements and sizes and make blanks in every imaginable head style—all the while making quality our number one priority.

As an ISO-certified, Fastener Quality Act-compliant company, using the most sophisticated testing and certification procedures, safety is always ensured, and the quality is always uncompromised.

The last thing travelers should have to worry about is the safety of their transportation; when companies choose to use our fasteners, it’s something no one has to worry about.

Two Decades of Quality Products and Quality Service

Greetings from Chicago Nut & Bolt. Thanks for taking the time to visit our blog pages, a new channel of communication between us and you, our customers, and all those interested in the essential and practical details of the fastener industry! As we approach our 20th birthday, it’s time to look back on how we got to where we are today as a trusted manufacturer of both standard and custom fasteners used throughout heavy industry.

We began essentially as a generalized fastener manufacturer and supplier to many different types of customers. Over the years, we identified a niche that married well with our capabilities (in providing custom products for heavy industrial customers), and refined our company accordingly—our custom capabilities are now what we are most recognized for! We can provide any fastener per your request, sizes ranging from ¼ in. to 3 in. diameters and up to 72 in. lengths (meaning extra-long and extra-large sizes!). What else can we do? We can get you the nut, bolt, or screw you need on rush orders, small to large volume orders, with special flats or body diameters, down to every detail you draw up on a blueprint! Want more? We can warehouse those orders for you!fasteners, custom fasteners

Need proof that our custom fasteners are the golden products in our industry? Our work can be found all over the country, including Biosphere 2, Arecibo Observatory, King’s Island’s “Son of Beast” roller coaster, Golden Gate Bridge, Seawolf Submarines, IMPSA Container Cranes, City Center in Las Vegas, and various wind tower projects (and trust us, these are only a handful!).
