“I’ve always been interested in invention and innovation. It’s a family tradition. In fact, I’m the only one in my family who isn’t an engineer.”
Carlos Girault is the visionary leader of Doxsteel Fasteners. Carlos’ spirit for invention and advancing ideas in both theory and practice outlines the grand vision for Doxsteel Fasteners and guides the company toward success. Since experiencing firsthand the pain that comes with having to face widespread bolt failure on cell phone towers in the 1990’s, he has maintained a laser-sharp focus on designing and implementing a better fastener for the entire industry. As a result, Doxsteel Fasteners have become the most scientifically engineered fasteners in the world.
“I’ve been in the fastener business for more than 40 years and I have never in my life seen a bolt that matches the resilience and performance of a Doxsteel Fastener. It’s almost too good to be true.”
Steve started his career in bolting at Lone Star Fasteners in 1969, one of Houston’s original nut and bolt companies. He would stay with Lone Star for more than four decades, becoming one of the most well-known people in the fastener industry.
After a few years off, Steve was lured out of retirement by the possibilities Doxsteel Fasteners could provide. He is fully dedicated to making the transformative fasteners that Doxsteel offers into the universal standard in the industry.
“In this industry, we’ve always been driven to cut costs for clients and to find the next generation of coatings. Without a doubt, Doxsteel Fasteners are the next generation. I know because I’ve tested it.”
Throughout his nearly 50 year career in oil and gas, Jim has been on the lookout for new advances in engineering and technology to save time, money, and lives. In 1995, he began testing and selling bolts at Lone Star Fasteners, which is where he encountered Doxsteel. Jim joined the Doxsteel Fasteners team in 2016, and since then has dedicated himself to spreading the word to the entire industry: the next generation of coated fasteners is here.
“Doxsteel Fasteners has the key elements for success in a manufacturing company: dedication, passion, and the drive to change the bolting world. Their revolutionary products provide the best anti-seize fasteners on the market, without question.”
Denny started his career in the industrial hub of Monterrey, Mexico, where he became proficient in serving the oil & gas industry in the United States and abroad. Through his experience in the service of big OEMs like FMC, National Oilwell Varco, and OSI, he acquired the know-how and skills to design and operate a world-class manufacturing facility. He applies this expertise in his role at Doxsteel to make sure our facilities meet the high quality and effective service requirements for which the industry is known.
“We’re not satisfied with the “as-is” status of the fastener industry. If we can make bolting safer, cost-effective, and better for operations, we’re going to make that push.”
Steve Brust began his career in the bolting industry at Lone Star Fasteners nearly 30 years ago. In that time, he has become recognized as an industry leader in facility turnaround, process improvement, and change management practices. Steve’s oversight of day-to day operations at Doxsteel facilities across the United States and Mexico is guided by his years of experience in operations management and international sales, and he is excited to play a part in bringing this revolutionary new product to market.
