Motion Control Engineering & Manufacturing
Knapp, a former trim designer, joined Weber in 1909, when the manufacturing facility covered a mere few hundred square feet and housed a limited but productive operation.
That year, the enthusiastic partners renamed the business and set it on a course to maintain high quality while providing for gradual but steady growth.
In the first decade, the primary products were phonograph hardware, needle cups and covers, hinges, and supports. 1920 brought growth and diversification when the Keeler Brass Company of Grand Rapids, Michigan purchased Weber Knapp.
Throughout its history, Weber Knapp has continuously been a supplier and contributor to innovations within in this industry.
It all sparks when an innovative idea meets our patented technology. It doesn’t end until it’s custom packaged and shipped to your door. Check out a day in the life of product design & manufacturing at Weber Knapp.

Where you’re an office boss or an HR department head, you want your employees to be happy and healthy. In the past, the most overlooked way to do that has been providing them with a fully ergonomic office workstation setup.
In product design, motion and perceived quality are closely linked. When a lid, cover, or door moves smoothly or with just the “right” amount of effort, users can tell it's a high-quality product.
