About Us

Brown Bolt & Nut is a family business founded by Emerson C. Brown (Brownie, as he was affectionately referred to by most of his customers). Brown moved out from New York in 1938 and, after working sales for a few companies, decided to try his own hand in business ownership. He began Brown Bolt and Nut by sharing a phone line and shelves at Henry's Welding.brown-family-angels-game-edited

When Brown moved the business to its current location, he and his wife Veronica partnered to build a fastener business that specialized in locating hard-to-find fasteners as quickly as possible. They incorporated the entire family into the business, often bringing home work for their four children.

Today, BB&N strives to maintain their commitment to the customer just as Brownie and his wife did in the company's early years.
