Custom Solutions & Offerings for Fasteners, Kitting, and Packaging

Empire Bolt & Screw offers complete customization services ranging from the fastener itself to kitting services and custom packaging. 


Milling, Machining & Molding – Custom Dimensions to Print

If your application requires a fastener with a custom design or dimensions, we can help. To get started, simply contact Empire Bolt & Screw:
  • We will review your print or drawing and recommend any improvements to decrease cost and improve fabrication efficiencies and find the best-matched source. 
  • We work with quality manufacturers to deliver custom milled, machined and molded fasteners based on your design specifications. 
After your custom fastener arrives, we perform a quality inspection in our in-house Dimensional Quality Assurance Laboratory to ensure it matches every element of your specifications.


Custom Plating & Coatings

Plating and coatings are used to customize parts, help protect fasteners from corrosion, or cosmetically change their appearance. 

Examples of common plating and coating options include zinc plating, galvanizing, black oxide, phosphate coating, black anodizing, brass plating, nickel plating, specialized chromates, and chromate conversion coatings. 

Our technical staff works with you to match the appropriate plating and coating with your project. 


Locking Elements

Locking elements are used for fastener applications where exposure to vibration and other movements can cause threaded fastener assemblies to loosen or be damaged. Different locking methods are used to provide a frictional connection between internal and external threaded assemblies. These methods vary in design based on specific applications. 

Empire Bolt & Screw partners with you to take your design specifications and implement an effective locking method to meet your custom requirements. Contact us to discuss your custom locking element design.

There are many materials to consider when designing your custom fastener, our technical team will work with you to determine the best fit. We always keep in mind the following considerations when choosing a fastener material:
  • Temperature tolerance
  • Conductivity
  • Magnetic properties
  • Resistance to corrosion
  • Weight
  • Tensile strength

Custom Fastener Kitting & Packaging

Custom packaging is necessary for many industrial operations for maintaining consistency and efficiency in supplying the manufacturing floor. Whether you need fasteners packaged in anti-static bags or boxes for your manufacturing operation, we have the solution you need.

Empire Bolt & Screw also offers custom kitting as a solution for installation projects and applications requiring assortments of hardware. Production-ready custom kits help save time and money by presenting components in an organized manner, which can reduce manufacturing time and improve efficiency.
