Tension Control Bolts Ltd (TCB) assemblies are extensively used in modular tower designs and been utilized by the most prominent companies in the wind energy market including Siemens Gamesa and Lagerwey.

The firm currently exports some 20 million bolts to over 30 countries around the world each year.

TCB has now supplied over 9 million bolts for wind turbines across the globe, making an important contribution to a greener future.

TCB also supply bolting assemblies for safety-critical infrastructure including rail track joints, and train and truck chassis.

The firm’s environmentally friendly coating called Greenkote® is longer lasting, harder wearing and more cost effective than conventional types of Zinc coating.

Greenkote® is approved by international motor manufacturers including General Motors, Mercedes-Benz, VW, and Audi.

TCB Managing Director Tim Stokes said: “We are thrilled to be recognised by His Majesty the King for our contribution to UK exports.
We are a great trading nation. The UK is home to so many manufacturing companies shipping their goods to major infrastructure projects around the world. This is something as a country we should be incredibly proud of. I’d like to pay tribute to our dedicated staff who put in long hours to produce some of the most advanced bolts available on the market today

About Tension Control Bolts

Tension Control Bolts Ltd has been operating for some fifty years although it was originally involved in the manufacture of standard bolting. TCB’s were a British concept but found popularity first in the Far East and then the USA. The bolt has now established a firm foothold in the construction Industry throughout Europe and has virtually replaced the original standard high strength friction grip bolts and nuts due mainly to its speed of installation and quality advantages. When Tension Control Bolts Ltd pioneered the Greenkote® coating system it was probably the most significant moment in the company’s history. With anticorrosion being high on the engineers list of priorities, Greenkote, with its natural advantages, instantly revolutionised the coating of threaded fasteners and more importantly, guaranteed the complete absence of any form of Hydrogen embrittlement in high strength bolts. Today, tension control bolts are used almost exclusively around the world in the construction of Steel Bridges, High Rise Building Structures and Stadia, and are the first choice for engineers who demand the highest standards of bolting integrity.
