Fastener distribution and manufacturing for structural steel, metal building, and waterworks industries

Birmingham Fastener is your comprehensive metal building fabrication supplier. From screws to bracing hardware, we have everything your business needs.
We also can powder coat screws in-house for the Metal Building, Metal Roofing, Pole-Barn, and Shed-Building industries.
We stock over 27 industry standard colors and color matching is also available for those hard-to-find special panel and trim colors.
Our screws are coated with BKOTE®, our multi-layer high-grade coating that combines for superior rust resistance.
Our long-life screw combines the BKOTE® system with a premium zinc-aluminum die-cast head and provides the ultimate resistance to corrosion found in harsh environments.
Birmingham Fastener’s large inventory of powder-coated screws and other common metal building components allow us the capability to ship across the country with ease.
Serving the waterworks industry is one of Birmingham Fastener’s primary businesses. Our world-class operators have a combined 100+ years of experience and an unmatched commitment to quality ensuring that our customers get the finest bolts possible for rugged waterworks applications.
Birmingham Fastener takes pride in being the only domestic manufacturer of T-Head Bolts. Our T-Bolts meet all ANSI/AWWA C111/A21.11 requirements.
We produce T-Bolts in many variations including fluorocarbon coated (particularly our Cor Blue™ coating), 304 and 316 stainless material, anti-rotation design, and non-standard thread length.
Cor-Blue™ is a registered trademark of Birmingham Fastener. Cor-Blue™ T-bolts begin with raw material, which is then formed into high-quality T-heads finished with Fluorokote #1.
While there are many imitations on the market, there is only one true Cor-Blue™.
