4B BRAIME have purchased the machinery and tooling to manufacture the range of elevator bucket bolts previously manufactured by JACKSON FASTENERS.

This is good news for all those companies who have run into sourcing problems after the famous bolt manufacturer JACKSON has closed down. In fact, at 4B telephone lines have been running hot in the last few weeks because of customers who were desperately searching for Jackson bolts. The JACKSON machinery will enable 4B BRAIME to manufacture under their own “4B”brand the following former JACKSON bolts:

- “Ref 70”; Large Oval Washers, Easifit Bolts, Fang Bolts and Euro Bolts.
