Manufacturers and other businesses know they need to buy bulk nuts and bolts in California. Of course, these little bits and pieces don’t cost too much on a per unit basis, but the cost adds up. Most manufacturers use thousands of bolts and nuts each and every day. Buying only what is needed for a given period of time isn’t a cost-effective solution for most companies. On the other hand, buying in bulk and exceeding demand by a small margin makes sense.
A given buyer might save 5-10% or more buying in bulk. That small amount of cost savings adds up over time. Fortunately, a number of companies supply these parts and hundreds of others. Buyers don’t need to worry about sizing and quantity concerns; one manufacturer or another will have them covered. Therefore, companies can buy to their heart’s content and get their material needs taken care of.
