The story of The Knotts Company is 70 years in the making!  Kenneth E. Knotts, original owner, started the business back in 1952 with a vision out of his home in Cranford, New Jersey.  The Knotts Company predominately became a distributor of pneumatic components, couplings, and specialty vacuum compressors.

In 1967, Ken moved Knotts to Berkeley Heights and opened the current office at 350 Snyder Avenue where they have been residing and growing the past 55+ years.

Many things have changed over the course of 70 years with one thing that has always stayed the course.  The ultimate question remains, how has Knotts remained strong and survived?  The answer is simple than one would think.

“WE LISTEN TO OUR CUSTOMERS AND THEIR NEEDS.”  

Knotts has had to continually adapt to the ever-changing market….from focusing on pneumatic components back in the 1950s to now a high-tech industrial automation and robotics organization still carrying their backbone of pneumatics and mechanics. After all, pneumatics will forever be needed and can be used in every customer location and even typically opens the doors to many other conversations and future opportunities.  The importance of staying in touch with the customers ' knowledge and hearing their needs as time evolves has been the key to their success over these past 7 decades, especially during the recent 2020 pandemic that continues to impact every business across the manufacturing world.

The Knotts Company has now evolved into a leading automation solution provider supporting the New Jersey and metro New York area representing industry-leading manufacturers of industrial, automation and robotics technology.  The company has 4 areas of focus including Automation, Robotics, Pneumatics and Mechanics with all sectors being crucial pieces to develop our solutions. 

Armed with that in-depth knowledge, Knotts collaborates with customer experts to create higher level solutions including technology, products, integration, machine building and other services for increasing performance, productivity and profitability. 

The Knotts Company’s core competencies include Pneumatics, Machine Guarding and Framing, Electric Actuators, Conveyors, Automation, Motion Control, Robotics, Machine Safety and Compressors.

The Knotts Company is extremely grateful to help customers every day not just stay in business but thrive and grow in a competitive marketplace.  70 YEARS DOWN.......70+ MORE TO GO!
