Our employees are fastener experts that listen to the needs of our customers. Regardless of your location, we can implement a vendor managed inventory system (VMI) that meets your needs. Our overall goal is to meet the production needs of our customer while keeping the “business” aspect simple. We can make your business more productive without cutting into your budget. Please contact a Lightning Bolt & Supply expert today and allow us to do what we do best…

Over the past few years, we have won multiple national awards for innovation.  Our customer focused attention to efficiency and design has allowed us to keep things “EASY” for the customer.  Our scanners (and even our app) can even read our competitors bins.  So once the items that need replenishing are scanned, a quote is sent to where it needs to go, complete with quantities and pricing.  Many of our customers have liked it so much that they want their own scanners.  We have named this CMI (Customer Managed Inventory).  What many of our customers like is that our scanners can even read the labels of our competition, such as Fastenal, Lawson, Kimble Midwest, Class C Solutions, MSC, Barnes, and more…
