We Build The Best
Knapheide's Manufacturing Excellence
Since its humble beginnings in 1848, The Knapheide Manufacturing Company has continually worked to improve its processes and manufacturing capabilities. Due to this commitment of continual improvement, Knapheide stands today with the most highly automated and technologically advanced equipment and processes in the industry. Knapheide's Westphalia facility houses the majority of our manufacturing processes. The Westphalia plant was completed in 1997 and covers a staggering 480,000 square feet.
A recent highlight in the continuing history of The Knapheide Manufacturing Company is the company receiving ISO 9001:2008 certification. ISO is a quality management system that is recognized globally. While the core of this certification is focused on product quality, Knapheide took the process a step further and utilized the processes to improve virtually every area of the company from how orders are received and processed to the shipping of the product to the end customer.
Our historical roots and rich heritage are not forgotten by the generation that leads our company into success today. The ability to evolve into new technology and new products has made us the industry leader. Knapheide's product lines are the most diverse they've ever been and we continue to identify and move into new markets to better serve our distributors, fleet customers, and end users. As we look into what the future will hold for Knapheide, we remember to never forget how hard the generations before us worked in order to keep Knapheide on top.
