Bolt King was established in 2006. With a joint experience of over 100 years in the Special Fastener Industry, our customers can rest assured they are talking to experienced fastener engineers, with a wealth of knowledge at their disposal.

Our Managing Director, Alan Russell, has been in the Special Fastener industry for 40 years. Alan was the founder of Hydrobolt in the early 1990s, and has been Managing Director of a number of successful fastener engineering facilities, most recently Doran Engineering, which he sold to a private investor in 2005 at the height of its success. Bolt King was formed with the same vision - a versatile manufacturing capability, combined with a personal service.
