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.

NEED A SPECIALLY DESIGNED TOOL?
The Company will repair or replace products which fail to give satisfactory service due to defective workmanship or materials (excluding calibration) for 12 months from the date of original purchase. Products must be returned with proof of purchase, freight prepaid, to our facility for warranty evaluation.
The Company warrants “initial, out of box calibration” of each new, unused torque tool.
The Company does not provide any warranty for products subjected to abnormal use. Abnormal use includes but is not limited to misuse, accident, modification, unreasonable use, neglect, lack of maintenance, use under extreme weather conditions, or use after the tool is significantly worn.
Agents/Representatives of the Company have no authority to make representations of any sort beyond those contained in this warranty.
In no event shall the Company be liable to the customer or anyone claiming through or against customer for any special damages (including, without limitation, personal injury, lost time of production, lost profits, lost sales, interruption of business, or loss of business information).

Dedicated Facility For “Special” Jobs
Repair, Service & Calibration Experts!
Over the years, we have developed hundreds of Specialty Tools through engineering, prototyping and manufacturing for automotive, heavy equipment, agricultural, petrochemical, aerospace, medical and electronics industries. We do this as part of the service that has made Belknap a valued supplier to large and small companies.
While the quality of our designs and products are well known, the professional service after the sale has long been a Belknap trademark, including unmatched, knowledgeable and courteous customer service, as well as expedited production lead times.
Our in-house machine shop is dedicated for “special” jobs for our customers. That is why our response time matches today’s quick turnaround demand. The engineers in our Research and Development Department are constantly working with the latest technology available to develop new ideas to introduce to industry more advanced tooling.
Our Repair Department is a full service department. We can repair, service and calibrate most any make of torque wrench. Certifications of Accuracy, traceable to the National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST), are furnished with each repaired torque wrench.
“Our customers recognize the quality of our products all over the world and while they may never need the tooling life our tools are capable of, it is still there, just in case
they do! The reputation and trust we have developed over the years is important to Belknap and we intend to keep
it that way.
We welcome your call. Let us prove to you why your trust in Van F. Belknap Co., Inc. is warranted and justified.”
