About Us

The Action Bolt Group consists of an industrial fastener and a tool and hardware division. It also had developed it's own computer software company which sold software for companies specialising in distribution. The company’s former founder member, Dave Pritchard, commenced business in 1983 and in 1990 expansion led to the construction of a custom designed 3200² warehouse - the first of it’s kind in South Africa.

In 1985 a branch was opened in East London and in 1994 a new branch in Richards Bay was established. 1997 saw another new branch opening in Johannesburg and 2008 Action Bolt placed a representative in Cape Town. In 2006, under new management, Action Bolt was bought out by German company Würth and has since been a member of the international Würth Group. The company underwent a complete restructuring of it’s warehouse, introducing a semi-automated system which ensures better and faster service to customers.

In the 28 years that the company has been operating, it has become the largest independent fastener distributor in the country with plans for further specialised branches in South Africa.
