Client Stories

We have a long-standing history of coming to the aid of our clients, and here are several examples…

Gainesville Renewable Energy Center

GREC entrusts us to manage their inventory of fasteners, drill bits, pipe fittings, power tools, cutting tools, abrasives and more through a VMI agreement. Learn more about our vendor managed inventory.

AT&T Skyscraper

AT&T Tower in downtown Jacksonville, Florida

At the time it was built, the EverBank Center in downtown Jacksonville was known as the BellSouth Tower and then as the AT&T Tower. It was the largest building in Florida.

We submitted a bid for the project, but a competing supplier initially underbid us and won the contract. However, the supplier was not able to meet its commitment.

Our reputation for being able to manage a crisis motivated the contractor to give us a call, and we readily supplied 20-foot anchor bolts through one of our custom manufacturing shops.

BAE Systems

Bae Systems shipyard in Jacksonville, Florida

BAE Systems is headquartered in Arlington, VA. At its full-service location in Jacksonville, Florida, it performs luxury yacht refits and repairs, commercial and naval ship repairs and conversions, industrial and marine fabrication, and assembly.

Mathew's Bridge

Mathew's Bridge located in Jacksonville, Florida

When Continental Cable was ready to install the 4-inch fiber optic cables that run underneath the Mathew’s bridge, they found out that they had not ordered the fasteners for the cable’s straps and hangers. So, they called us to handle their crisis!

We worked day and night to custom manufacture the fasteners they needed, and we delivered them on time.

Epcot Dome in Orlando

Disney's Epcot Dome located in Orlando, Florida

Disney’s Epcot Dome in Orlando is actually called “Spaceship Earth” and serves as a central icon to embody the theme of the park and to draw guests in.

The structure is a 160-ft. diameter geodesic sphere elevated above the ground which took countless hours to design and 26 months to build.

After extensive research, we found and supplied all the hard-to-find fasteners that were needed for its uniquely engineered structure.

Rodman Dam

Rodman Dam located in north, central Florida

The build of the Roman Dam was an initiative led by the Army Corps of Engineers during the 1970s to build a canal that bisected Florida. The Rodman Dam was one of three dams to be completed for the project, and we supplied all of the bolts for it.

Crystal River Power Plant

Nuclear power plant located in Crystal River, Florida

When the Crystal River Power Plant was operational, we supplied all the fasteners for the cooling pipe that ran from the Crystal River Power Plant to the Gulf of Mexico.

This project required fasteners in various sizes, including very large diameter fasteners for the huge cooling pipe. We also custom manufactured fasteners for them.

St. John's River Ferry

We supplied all the weathering bolts for the bumpers of the ferry’s bulkhead.
