Thunderbolts was formed in January 1991 by 3 Directors with a wealth of experience of the Fastener and Fixing industry, and commenced trading in Southampton, Hampshire.

This central south coast location enabled the company to effectively service the whole of Hampshire, Dorset, West Sussex and Southern Wiltshire via its own delivery vehicles.

The company’s reputation for supplying quality products backed by a top-quality service soon spread beyond these counties; new customers across the country and overseas were soon purchasing their fastener & fixing requirements from Thunderbolts.

In 1995 Thunderbolts moved into much larger premises with bulk storage facilities, which enabled the business to vastly increase its product range and become a leading distributor of quality bolts, nuts, rivets, screws, nails, fixings, sealants and tools.

We offer a full TECHNICAL SUPPORT SERVICE which provides advice and solutions to Fastener and Fixing problems.

Bufab, through its subsidiary Montrose Holdings Ltd, signed on the 24th of May 2017, an agreement to acquire 100 percent of the shares in the privately-owned company Thunderbolts Group Limited, in Southampton in the United Kingdom. The acquisition will be completed with immediate effect, and will be reported in Bufab’s segment International. Read the pressrelease
