Imported Threaded Rods Could Jeopardize Projects

Originally published by the following source: CLP SystemsMarch 27, 2018


We at CLP Systems recently discovered an article written by Salim Brahimi of the Industrial Fasteners Institute in the winter edition of Link Magazine, discussing the surge in foreign threaded rods disrupting the North American market. In this article, he depicts how foreign-made threaded rods are infiltrating the industry, and why these sub-standard rods could jeopardize projects across the nation. His ultimate goal is to raise awareness of the amount of non-conforming threaded rods and how to identify them in order to ensure the safety of all further projects.

Due to the nature of our business and the industry in which we work, we wanted to continue to raise awareness of this issue. CLP Systems prides itself on using only USA made threaded rod materials; one of the many ways we strive to ensure the strength and integrity of all of your projects.
