Our Story

Nickel Systems was incorporated in 2002, however, the idea for Nickel Systems began in 1978 when I started working as a buyer for a fastener distributor. My job was sourcing items that were difficult to find. I quickly got to know the Thomas Register and as a result, I felt the frustration of finding a supplier who claimed to have the items I needed, but couldn’t deliver. While they did not have what I needed, they were more than willing to search for my parts hoping to mark them up and sell them to me.

While the internet has ended the era of the “oversized” green books, it has not changed all the misleading claims. Nickel Systems is addressing that issue with our niche inventory. Not only do we promote high nickel alloy fasteners such as Hastelloy® C276, we actually have them on the shelf. So if you’re searching for high nickel corrosion resistant fasteners, give us a call. In all likelihood, we will have what you need and will be able to give you a quote on the spot. Wouldn’t it be good to hear the words, IN STOCK rather than WE WILL CALL YOU BACK?

Nickel Systems was able to get us out of a bind when we needed our product the next day. They went above and beyond to make sure we received our product the next day, even when we were almost past the cut off for same day shipments.

It has been a pleasure working with Nickel Systems for all my exotic metals machining needs.  Quotes are thorough, competitive, and always received on short notice. We have never had to return parts, nor have parts ever been anything other than made exactly to print. Their lead-times are always very reasonable, too

This was my first-time using Nickel System’s, I work with a guy in my office, and he had recommended your services. I was in search of 347 SS U-Bolts ¼” not an everyday item for us, and not an item you can buy off the shelf at any industrial bolt supplier. Nickel Systems was able ….

Melinda KPurchasing Agent

Our location has been working with Nickel Systems for about 5-6 years now, and our other locations even longer. Nickel Systems has served my company extremely well with supplying not just the common materials for fasteners, but the more “exotic” materials that are harder to get and very expensive these days. In many cases they ….


Nickel Systems has been a great addition as a new vendor for us. We can depend on their large special alloy inventory of bolts every time. Even more importantly, Nickel Systems has tailored an inventory program for our commonly used special alloys, by maintaining a backup stock of our specific bolting requirements at their warehouse. ….

You always get back to me in a timely manner with what I need. If you don’t have exactly what I need you provide options for me, which is helpful on my end. I can’t seem to think of any instances where we have to ask for MTR’s (which we have issues with from other ….
