Most Australians have been touched by breast cancer in one way or another. In fact, one in every nine Australian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer by the age of 85. As the number of women afflicted with this terrible disease grows, so does the need for help and support.
Women dealing with gynaecological cancers often have specific needs and questions about their diagnosis and treatment options.
The QLD Cancer Council raises awareness about breast and gynaecological cancers, as well as funds, in support of the many thousands of women in Australia and their families who are affected by these cancers. This year Bolts & Industrial Supplies held another Pink Ribbon Day “Wear Pink” event at all five of our stores to raise money for women’s cancer. The day was a great success and the entire team managed to raise almost $2500 (as well as managing to look very pretty in pink).
Congratulations everyone, and thank you for a job well done! Lets do it again in 2015!

It is with great pleasure that we can now announce the opening of our new store in Bathurst!
Bolts and Industrial Supplies has been a family owned and operated business for 40 years and the business is still in the family name to this day. Our decision to expand further into the New South Wales market heralds a new and exciting future for our company.
We are very excited to welcome two new additions to our fantastic team, Roger and Fiona. Their combined knowledge of fasteners, cutting tools and engineering and hardware products are invaluable and they will be able to handle any technical questions you may have.
Lockjaw – A Premium Plier Range for the Industrial, Trade and DIY markets.
Lockjaw Self Adjusting Pliers provide the versatility of standard locking pliers. However, that’s where the comparison ends.
No knob, no hastle…
Traditional locking pliers require two hands to adjust the jaw opening for each task.
The Lockjaw patented ‘Set and Forget’ pressure control screw locking mechanism allows the jaws to automatically adjust to any size object for fast, easy one-handed operation!
Optimised endmill for highly alloyed steels offers end users an edge in the market
