Suburban Bolt and Supply Company has been awarded a 2018 Top Workplaces honor by The Detroit Free Press. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”

Suburban Bolt and Supply is a family-owned, Veteran-owned and operated small business, founded in 1971. We are a Metro Detroit institution, providing over 47 years of unparalleled customer service in distribution and sales of industrial supplies. We are a premier supplier of high quality fasteners, cutting tools, abrasives, PVF, shop supplies, safety products, and so much more. We have three locations in Michigan that are open six days a week to provide the best customer service experience possible. Our main location is in Roseville, while our other two branches are in Port Huron and Grayling.

"We sell the widgets that hold the world together," said Eric Peterson, Suburban Bolt and Supply's president.  "We're a distributor of industrial supplies, most anything a manufacturing facility would use during the course of a business day.  We're also open to the public, so you can come in and buy one bolt."  

The friendly atmosphere at Suburban Bolt and Supply is one of the reasons it’s a Top Workplace. It’s not just family among leadership – it’s throughout the whole company. Among employees, there are 11 families with two or more members working for Suburban Bolt.

"The most important skill we love is for people to be good people, "Peterson said.  "One of the things we try to stress is the golden rule.  If everyone treats others the way they want to be treated, everything is better.  Most of the people who work for us don't have a two-or four-year degree.  We do a lot of training on-site.  We're very proud of our in-house training program."  

 “For a company with only 74 employees, that’s pretty impressive,” said Eric Peterson, President of Suburban Bolt. “Almost 20% of our employees have been with us for more than 20 years, and more than half have been with us for at least five years. We take a lot of pride in that.”
