Zoo Pro Products


        Founded in 1972 Knapp Manufacturing has built its reputation on fabricating unique, one-of-a-kind and short to medium run items. Whether you need a single part or a hundred welded assemblies, our full service shop has all the machinery necessary to fulfill your sheet metal and miscellaneous fabrication needs. We work with standard sheet metal as well as Galvanized, Aluminum, and Stainless Steel.

    Machinery includes: 4 Strippit Punch Presses, ranging from 30 to 75 tons and from 1 to 26 stations, Press Brakes from 45 to 160 ton, Shears capable of cutting up to 10’x 1/4” material, Presses from 5 to 400 tons, MIG, TIG, and Spot Welders, a Pines Bender as well as a variety of saws and other miscellaneous machinery.

           We also have a full service machine shop with everything needed to manufacture our own tooling. From Mills and Grinders right down to our own heat-treat oven. When necessary we can create small tools, such as custom punches, in as little as 3 hours!

           Our reputation is based on ultra-fast delivery times, high quality, versatility, and unsurpassed customer satisfaction. We understand that not every order can have a 4-week lead-time, but what’s the use of getting a part quickly if it doesn’t meet the standards of today’s tough customers? That’s why we do nearly everything in-house. No more waiting for another sub-contractor to complete his work while holding up yours. This also allows us to maintain complete quality control on every part we produce.

            Through the years, Knapp Manufacturing has changed to suit the times. We have even expanded to offer our own line of highly specialized products.

    Zoo Pro Zoological Products Company, designs, manufactures, and markets animal transport containers for zoos throughout the world and serves nearly every zoo in America. Each container is custom built to strict IATA (International Air Transportation Association) Specifications by this division of Knapp Manufacturing right here in the USA.

    Through it all, for over 30 years, Knapp Manufacturing has continued to supply our customers with the high quality products they need, when they need them. Customer satisfaction is our first and only goal.
