Fastest-growing screw machine products manufacturers in the U.S.

Posted by IndustryNet on Tuesday, November 27, 2018


100000304_SPMPrecision machined parts are essential in modern society, but they are useless if they can't stay in proper alignment and orientation. The components that perform this task are referred to as screw machine products, even though they describe more than just screws. 

Pins, bolts, shafts and, of course, screws, are all required to keep the machines and products in our lives functional.

Often relatively small in size, the required volume of screw machine parts is extremely high, making these suppliers a surprisingly powerful part of the domestic manufacturing economy.

Regional Contributions

This year has witnessed a 9% increase in total sales for the 744 companies that fall into the screw machine supplier category. Those companies generate over $1.6 billion in revenue, or approximately $2.2 million per company if averaged out.
