  • New markets
  • New products
  • New applications

Our patented, advanced counterbalance and hinge design raises the bar on quality and safety for several industries:

  • Kitchen & commercial appliance hinges
  • Medical ergonomics & equipment

We understand the true value of collaborating with our customers. For Weber Knapp, proudly based in Jamestown, N.Y., this is what “Made in the USA” manufacturing stands for.

From an engineering and manufacturing standpoint, it also means we’ve invested the time and effort to perfect many techniques, many of which we invented. Over the years, we’ve added critical prototype testing and intense quality control programs. Our ongoing research & development efforts are all in the name of coming up with a better, safer, longer-lasting solution for you.
