History / Today

Matenaer Corporation proudly continues on its fourth decade of providing innovative solutions to its diverse customers’ requirements. Since 1972, we have been producing special washers and metal stampings for fastener distributors and original equipment manufacturers.  A few industries that we have supplied parts to include: agriculture, lawn and garden, heavy truck, construction hardware, automotive, engine and transmission, construction equipment and consumer products.

Rooted In Customer Problem Solving

Matenaer traces its business philosophy of being a resource and solution to our customers' needs to its founder, Joe Matenaer.  Around 1970, Joe, who was then a steel salesman, saw the difficulties his customer, a small appliance manufacturer, was having with stamping small parts. Joe's solution was to set up a small stamping shop and Matenaer Corporation was born.

While more than forty years have passed, nothing has changed with the company's original philosophy - when our customers have a need, we will provide the solution.
