About Us

Flying Faster Than Others

KJL Fasteners was started in 2004, at the request of Lockheed Martin’s Houston facility. Lockheed was in need of an SBA Certified vendor; however, they needed a vendor to understand the complexities of supplying manned space flight hardware and the critical lead times needed to support launch windows.


The founder of KJL Fasteners (Ray Lock) at the time, was already a current flight fastener consultant to Lockheed and the NASA JSC facility they were managing when he was contacted. Ray is one of the original founders of Special-T Fasteners (currently Alcoa Fastening Systems in Simi Valley, Ca). Ray’s 40 plus years in the aerospace fastener industry encompassed design, manufacturing and distribution. In addition, the staff assembled at KJL is one of the most knowledgeable in the fastener industry.


Our current customers include: Lockheed Martin Missiles & Space, Aerojet Rocketdyne, Northrop Grumman, Boeing, Jacobs Technology, and multiple NASA Facilities.


We are able to supply super alloy bolts in 160 KSI to 260 KSI on short lead times with expedited deliveries available. We have a manufacturing partner A & A Machine that builds custom and unavailable standard hardware for us.


So, if your company could use a fastener supplier that has the knowledge to assist your engineering department in design, your program in making deliveries that others say are impossible, then let our AS9100 certified quality department and our outstanding purchasing department be your sole supplier of Super Alloy fasteners! Also, you will receive some additional benefits from using a SMALL WOMEN OWNED COMPANY! We would ask that you give us an opportunity to compete for your business.
