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.
