ABOUT VAN F. BELKNAP CO., INC.

Van Belknap grew up with the Ford family and other automotive names at the time. It was his hard work in 1936 that established Van F. Belknap Co., Inc. as a leading supplier in the automotive industry.

Hank Thorn bought the company in 1970 and streamlined it into what it is today. He brought a work hard ethic of expanding the customer base, and encouraged the staff to do the same, by keeping costs and prices under control while providing a high quality product. His innovation, positive thinking and customer service values have made Belknap a great business partner.

Belknap has maintained its original purpose in designing tools that will withstand the use and abuse of assembly line, maintenance and repair usage. We continue to provide our customers with high quality service and top of the line torque wrenches, adapters and specialized custom designed tooling.
