10 Largest U.S. Manufacturers of Screw Machine Products

Posted by IndustrySelect on Wednesday, November 18, 2020



Screw machine products are components created through the use of turning lathes. As evidenced by the name, the first products produced were metal screws.

Today, the range is far broader and includes hardware, bolts and mechanical parts. Screw machine products are used in every industry imaginable, making this sector quite resilient.

A Quick Rundown

COVID-19 had an effect on this sector due to lockdowns that curtailed the output of businesses that demand screw machine products. As they reduced production, the screw machine product sector contracted slightly in response. The total number of jobs reduced by just 11 to 20,308 in total. Average sales are currently just above $2.3 billion.

MNI's database of 500,000 industrial companies, including more than 800 U.S. screw machine manufacturers, shows that the vast majority of screw machine product companies are privately held, with only 1% being public entities. International distribution is modest at 30% while the import of raw materials is a low 11%. Geographic concentration is highest in the Midwest with 53% of all companies based there. A full 25% call the Northeast home, and the South and West are nearly equal with 12% and 10% respectively.
