Skybolt Aerospace Fasteners COVID-19 Updates

Loyal Customers of Skybolt Aerospace Fasteners:

We are reaching out to share with our customers operation plans with regard to the COVID-19 pandemic. On-line sales are operating at 100% and the traditional Skybolt fast lead times have not been affected. This is a fluid and rapidly developing situation, but as of this week our plan is as follows:

Our Team: The highest priority right now is the health and safety of Skybolt Aerospace Fasteners team. We have implemented social distancing and hygienic protocols within our facility to help with preventing the transmission of the virus. We are asking any employee with symptoms or known exposure to quarantine at home. This may temporarily impact quick replies to customer service and the processing of orders. We ask for your understanding during this time as we work towards minimal business interruptions.

Phone & E-Commerce Orders: Our team is handling orders quickly and timely while working with logistics of carriers to continue shipments around the world. We will make any updates available on our website if this becomes impacted in a severe way. As a company with one of the largest e-commerce sites for fasteners, it’s easy to continue to work on your projects while placing orders online.  

U.S. Domestic Production: Since we manufacture approx. 99% of our patent products in Florida, we will still be able to provide a quick turnaround for custom projects. Contact our support team for any questions. 

Upcoming Shows: We were excited to see you in Miami at at the PartsBase EXPO, MRO Americas in Dallas, TX, and the Farnborough International Airshow in England, however the first two shows have been postponed until further notice. Farnborough Int’l Airshow is still planned for late July.

This is a great time to begin work on projects that you haven’t had time to focus on as you realign your efforts. Contact our engineer to discuss any fastener problems you have or solutions you need. 

We wish you the best during this unprecedented temporary transition from normality. Hoping for clear skies ahead as we come together to tackle this pandemic. Thank you very much for your commitment to Skybolt.

Ned Bowers, President, & the Skybolt Team
