Bristol Industries was established in October of 1976. Initial products manufactured were socket-head cap screws for the general industrial market. Later that year, Bristol Industries entered the aviation market manufacturing self-locking nuts for Pratt and Whitney, General Electric, Allison Engines and Rolls Royce PLC.
In 1978 Bristol Industries began manufacturing airframe nuts and gang channel products for McDonnell Douglas on the F15 and F18 fighter programs. Subsequently Bristol began manufacturing airframe nuts for the C-17, DC-9, DC-10, KC-10, MD-11, MD-80 series and the MD-95 program. Soon after, this product line was expanded into Boeing Commercial for use on the 727, 737, 747, 757 and 767 programs.
