John and Tim were kept busy with visitors who represented a good cross-section of the British fastener distribution industry. Great interest was shown in our non-standard Metric range and the special bolting that is produced in our factory, alongside the new ranges of fasteners in stainless, non-ferrous and exotic materials made possible by our expansion in 2016.

Smith Bullough at Torque Expo 2015

Two good days were spent at the Torque Expo Fastener Exhibition, which was held at Silverstone on the 13th and 14th of October 2015.


John Hilton and Tim Garton represented us at the exhibition. Many attendees from the fastener distribution industry showed interest in our range of manufacture, which includes non-standard and special metric fasteners, as well as the BSW, BSF, UNC and UNF imperial sizes for which we have been traditionally known. The distributors were pleased to learn of our policy of only supplying to the distribution trade.


The gala dinner was very well attended by more than 200 people, who were entertained by a magician and an after-dinner speaker.


A Ferrari racing car was available for some of the exhibitors and their guests to drive on part of the Grand Prix track. A very understanding instructor accompanied all the prospective ‘Lewis Hamiltons’. Tim was fortunate to have a drive on this iconic circuit and his memories from the instructor were to ‘keep the power on’ as he approached Stowe, at the end of the Hangar Straight at a speed well in excess of 100 MPH!
