Holo-Krome, a subsidiary of Fastenal, will host a 95th anniversary celebration on July 10 at its facility in Wallingford, CT.

Founded in 1929, Holo-Krome made its name by pioneering the cold forming process, a technique to mass-produce fasteners with greater structural integrity and less material waste. Today, Holo-Krome manufactures premium-quality socket head products for critical applications – all made in the U.S.

“The fastener manufacturing industry was largely offshored in the 1970s and ’80s, but Holo-Krome stayed true to its roots and loyal to its employees and community,” the company stated. Fastenal acquired Holo-Krome in 2009, kept their experienced team intact, and invested in a new 200,000 sq ft facility in 2010.

 Ongoing investments in technology and on-the-job training continue to make Holo-Krome prosper. Recent improvements include a multimillion-dollar purchase of three state-of-the-art cold forming headers and bolt makers – among the largest and most efficient machines of their kind in North America.
