More Than Bolts

By Josh Miller, Co-Owner & Operator of Threadline Products

When many of our customers think of Threadline Products, they immediately think of bolts – but our Charlotte-based custom metal fabrication shop can help our customers fill many other metal product needs.

While we are glad to be synonymous with one of our core products, we want customers to know that we are also here for their other metal needs – such as concrete embeds, grating and diamond plates, grout pots, pipe bollards, and more.

Concrete is one of the most common building materials because of its strength and durability. Concrete embeds – rectangular metal plates with attached welding studs – connect the concrete to the metal framework. 

Threadline Products works with construction supply partners to distribute concrete embeds. We also are an emergency source for concrete embeds when customers have a quick turnaround need so they can keep a product moving.

Fast and flexible metal fabrication is a key part of our value proposition at Threadline Products. We are here for our customers when they have unforeseen problems so that they can keep their projects moving forward. That flexibility extends beyond our anchors and bolts to our metal fabrication services.

We similarly create concrete bollards, which are steel tubes filled with concrete. These are used in various settings to control traffic and prevent vehicles from entering an area or hitting a building.

Threadline Products also plays a role in DoD infrastructure projects in North and South Carolina. Many of these custom-made products end up as bridge components. These might include bridge diaphragms, expansion joints for bridge decks, grout pots, and drain lines.

In addition to the structural components, Threadline Products has customers who source their decorative railings for pedestrian walkways and bridges through the custom shop. Such walkways also may require galvanized sidewalk cover plates that allow pedestrians to walk over connected areas without tripping.

Whatever the custom metal need, Threadline Products is committed to finding a way to help. One of our advantages is that our fabricators have a lot of experience – about 10 years in our shop on average. That is a lot of custom projects that we were able to create for our customers.

We say that our shop is your shop. If someone is in a jam, we want to help them, whether they are an existing customer or someone who comes through an industry contact. We listen to the customer’s problem and craft a flexible, efficient, and fast solution to meet their needs. 

That is the Threadline Products difference – we are fast, we are flexible, and we are at your service. When you need a specific product, and you need it fast, it’s time to come to Threadline.

Women in Fasteners

By Kathy Foster When I started working in the metal fabrication industry, I was one of the few women – and to be honest, we remain heavily outnumbered by men even today. Now, I work in sales for Threadline Products Inc., which acquired Atlantic Bolt Inc. in Feb 2022.  Prior to our acquisition I worked… Read more »

Theadline Products Sponsors Charlotte’s Brookstone Schools

As part of our commitment to improving and building our community, Threadline Products is proud to be an official Silver Sponsor for Brookstone Schools, a nonprofit organization that provides affordable, faith-based schooling to students throughout the Greater Charlotte area. We believe in the incredible power of Christ-centered education and we’re happy to support an organization that does it right. Teaching students faith, virtue, and knowledge is of the utmost importance.

Brookstone’s mission is to equip children from underprivileged communities with the educational, spiritual, and social guidance they need in order to live happy, prosperous lives. This Christ-centered academy is run by experienced educators who are talented in helping children develop a lifelong love for learning, as well as in building their academic abilities and social skills. 

Brookstone Schools offer academic opportunities for kindergarten through eighth grade, afterschool enrichment programs, and summer camps. To ensure that each of their graduates continues to thrive in high school, the schools have an incredible program called Solidarity Scholars, in which selected alumni attend monthly meetings to receive encouragement, academic support, and advice on continuing their educational journey in college. This program’s mission is to provide additional guidance and support to young people who come from low-income families and as a result, break the generational cycle of poverty.  

Earlier this year, the Threadline leadership team was pleased to attend Brookstone’s annual fundraiser as an official corporate sponsor. “Events like these are a fantastic opportunity for our team to learn more about the needs of our community, engage with nonprofit leaders, and figure out new and better ways for us to contribute to positive initiatives,” said Threadline President Jenny Miller. 

Threadline’s annual contributions to Brookstone Schools contribute to the schools serving more in-need students and improving lives, one lesson at a time. We’re excited to continue supporting this amazing organization and its efforts to better the lives of children through high-quality education, caring instruction, and the power of faith.

Threadline Products, Inc. Acquires Atlantic Bolt, Inc. Charlotte-based Fastener Fabricators Join Forces to Increase Production Capacity, Speed in Meeting Customer Needs

February 23, 2022 (CHARLOTTE, NC) Threadline Products, a fastener fabrication company serving the industrial and construction industries, as well as original equipment manufacturers, announces the acquisition of fastener fabricators Atlantic Bolt, Inc.

The merger of the two Charlotte-based companies brings together teams with a combined 74 years of experience in serving contractors, departments of transportation, and OEMs. Threadline, founded in 1984, and Atlantic, launched in 1987, have been known across the Carolinas and Southeast as organizations built on responsive, reliable service, quality, and steady supply of anchors, bolts, studs, hardware, and other steel-fabricated products. 

The two companies are now operating as the expanded Threadline Products, under the leadership of Jenny and Josh Miller. Jenny Miller remains as President of Threadline, while Josh Miller retains his role of Vice President.

“We are grateful to J. R. and Trish Boyles for their steadfast leadership as second-generation family owners of Atlantic Bolt, and the way they’ve developed their team and capabilities through the years,” said Jenny Miller. “Their leadership has set the stage for our combined companies to merge seamlessly and create a combined team defined by excellence in fabrication expertise and unwavering commitment to fast, responsive customer service.”

“The acquisition of Atlantic Bolt effectively doubles our production and warehousing capabilities and allows us to compete at greater scale,” said Josh Miller. “Both teams will benefit from the years of wisdom and performance at the two legacy companies, while our combined customer base stand the most to gain, as together we will be better able to meet their demands in a growing economy.”

The combined company will operate with nearly double the professional staff, as well as doubling capacity for manufacturing and warehousing finished products, operating from Threadline’s and Atlantic Bolt’s legacy locations across central Charlotte.
