The acquisition of the Company by NHI further supports Bolts & Nuts’ growth and expansion strategy, following the recent opening of its new headquarters in Chattanooga, Tennessee and new facility in Danville, Kentucky. With a new branch in Louisville, Bolts & Nuts broadens its ability to serve strategic manufacturers and OEMs in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, southern Indiana, and Ohio.
