Endries International Inc. has acquired K&L Sales Inc. based in Hartland, Wisconsin.

K&L was founded in 1985 in Waukesha, Wisconsin, by brothers Dave and Tom Knebes. The foundation of the business was built on the distribution of riveting products and associated installation tools. Today, the company’s offerings have expanded to include a full line of fasteners including many proprietary brands. In addition, K&L has a complete suite of vendor managed inventory solutions and an installation tool repair center. 

“Endries is thrilled to welcome K&L into our family. Dave and Tom have built an organization that possesses a tremendous amount of industry knowledge and experience that is centered on customer service. We look forward to collaborating with our new team members to improve our overall market offerings,” said Steve Endries, president of Endries.
