Shoulder Eye Bolt: Small Part Plays a Big Part

One of the things I enjoy most about my job here at US Cargo Control is the variety of customers I get to speak with every day. Recently I received a call from Paul with Component Assembly Systems. I’m always curious about what the customers are using our products for especially when there is a large quantity like with this order: 300 of our 1/4″ x 2″ galvanized shoulder eye bolts.4461-1-4-x-2-galvanized-shoulder-eye-bolts_1_375 (1)

Paul began to tell me that our eyebolts would be holding the support vertical beams to the World Trade Center Transportation Hub. He shared a picture so I could see the image of this building which will ultimately serve over 200,000 daily commuters and feature multilevel retail and restaurant space.

  • The state-of-the-art hub is due to be completed in 2015
  • At approximately 800,000 square feet, it will rival Grand Central Station in size
  • The design features a distinctive, wing-like appearance
  • The structure will reach five stories underground into a basement area

This experience once again made me realize how rewarding it is when we’re able to get to know our customers and their needs; it’s a great feeling knowing we’re part of something much bigger.
