APPROVAL TO ISO 9001:2015

2018 Q1

Superceding our existing ISO 9001:2015, Bolt King is now certified by Lloyd’s Register to ISO 9001:2015.

A work in progress during 2017, we are very happy to have achieved this milestone. Bolt King continues to cement its place as one of the UK's premier special fastener manufacturers, offering a complete in-house solution, including Hot-Forging, CNC-machining, thread-rolling and grinding. We look forward to working with you!

 


 

APPROVAL TO EUROPEAN PRESSURE EQUIPMENT DIRECTIVE -  PED 2014/68/EU Annex 1 Sec 4.3

2017 Q1

As of 2017, Bolt King is now certified by Lloyd’s Register Energy to manufacture products in the conformance with the European Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) 2014/68/EU Annex 1 Para. 4.3.

We have listened to what our customer's require, and worked hard to obtain this approval during 2016-2017. This new approval will allow us to welcome new customers, but also expand our capabilities in working with our existing Distribution partners, enabling us to offer a more diverse range of products.

 


 

ON-SITE XRF POSITIVE MATERIAL IDENTIFICATION

2016 Q2

2016 sees the implementation of on-site Positive Material Identification (PMI) via our newly aquired Niton XL3t XRF Analyzer.

This new capability will inform and improve every aspect of Bolt King's in-house inspection procedures, from Inspection of incoming Raw Materials, to In-process and Final Inspections.

Our team has been fully trained to use this cutting edge equipment, and we hope that it will give our customer's yet another layer of confidence in our commitment towards continous improvement.


 

2006-2016 - CELEBRATING A DECADE OF SUSTAINABLE EXPANSION

2016 Q1

Our first decade has been one of steady expansion for Bolt King, having added to our capabilities in a wide spectrum of areas. Starting with the addition of 1 CNC Lathe and 2 VMCs, we have also diversified our on-site capabilities by installing PTFE application plant, as well as Heat Treatment facilities for Hot Forging Dies and small-batch super-alloys.

Our continued expansion proves that there remains a gap in the market for a forward-looking, professionally minded manufacturer, whose customer's are unhappy with the impersonal service of the multi-nationals, but remain frustrated with the unreliability of the smaller manufacturer.

 


EXPANDING OUR HOT FORGING CAPABILITIES

 2015 Q1

Q3 2014 has  seen the introduction of our second Hot Forging press, allowing us to forge up to M48 in Carbon Alloys.

Our expanded Hot Forging capabilities (60 Tonne, 125 Tonne and 250 Tonne machines) will continue to differentiate Bolt King from the raft of small-scale fastener manufacturers in the Black Country, and allow us to continue to offer a fully "in-house" solution for our customers.
