Founded 1840, Incorporated 1880,
Belknap was at one time a leading American manufacturer of hardware goods and a major wholesale competitor of retail sales companies
The company was founded and managed predominantly by members of the Belknap family and their chosen successors until its demise in 1986.
Outsiders with self interests gained a foothold in the company and forced descions that did not benefit the company.
Belknap was one of those huge suppliers that many thousands of independent hardware, feed stores and general stores depended upon for most of their inventory.
I remember many of the autoparts I purchased in the 1970's such as gasket sets and brake parts were manufactured by Belknap.
