Stainless Steel Bolts

Many stainless steel bolts I see (316 or 308) have the letters "THE" on the hex head. Is this the manufacturer's name or does it have another meaning. I have done internet search and find nothing about "THE".

Also, do 316 stainless bolts have different grades like the carbon steel bolts, or is there just one grade?
