Strathcona Manufacturing Inc.
Behind every great company is another great company.
In our first decade of business, we learned that maintaining a reliable supply chain was essential to serving our clients. At the time, we needed a manufacturer of specialty grade, fully threaded stud bolts with quick turnaround. In 1993, we fulfilled that need ourselves, by starting our own manufacturing company: Strathcona Manufacturing Inc.
"Since 1993 the manufacturing facilities at SMI have grown from 5000 to 15,000 square feet."
The exclusive relationship between our two companies, their close proximity, and a shared inventory and ordering system, has not only improved our supply chain but perfected it.
To keep up with demands, SMI keeps an inventory of 1,000,000 pounds of cold drawn steel — in the precise diameters that M & Z requires to serve our clients. When M & Z’s warehoused inventory drops below a certain threshold, SMI is quick to replenish it.
Since 1993 the manufacturing facilities at SMI have grown from 5000 to 15,000 square feet. Equipment and processes have been streamlined for efficiency and product quality. All manufacturing and testing processes are performed in-house, with the exception of heat treatment and steel supply.
Today, SMI manufactures B7M, L7M and L7 studs in 17 diameters, ranging from ½ to 3 inches. All studs are manufactured in accordance with ASTM/ASME standards A193 for B7, B7M, B16 and A320 for L7, L7M, B8, B8M.
