Meet Our Founders, Jim & Jennifer Knapp

Both business graduates, Jim & Jennifer opened their fastener business in 1987 after gaining experience in the industry.
For the Knapps their focus from Day 1 has been to make it a great customer experience for their clients.

Hiring people that share that vision has enabled them to assemble a team of highly dedicated, knowledgeable and energized people. All with the common goal of 100% customer satisfaction.

This commitment to their clients has allowed the company to grown into a vendor that now supplies a global market place with relationships that have lasted for decades with both clients and vendors.

It is important to the Knapp’s that their employees also feel engaged and appreciated and they like to do fun, team building activities on a regular basis.

Knapp truly is a family business with their daughter Lauren, son-in-law Graham and Jen’s cousin Ron all valuable contributors to the success of the business. If you come to the office you may even be greeted by Charlie the couples King Charles Cavalier who is also a regular visitor.
