Industrial Spring Corporation of Kansas City was founding in 1967 by Glenn Tehel as a custom manufacturer of high quality mechanical springs and formed metal products. He started the company in a small building in Riverside, MO and would make sales calls in the morning and make springs in the afternoon.
The company quickly grew and built a new 12,000 sq./ft. building up the street from the original location in 1974. Continued growth in business and new equipment led to an expansion of an additional 11,000 sq./ft. of warehouse and manufacturing space in 1999.
In 2015 more production space was again needed and the focus was placed on the need for a more lean production flow through the facility. With no more land available at the Riverside location, Phil Jones the current President of Industrial Spring, relocated operations to a new 42,000 sq./ft. facility in North Kansas City, MO.
In 1991 we began the process of becoming an employee owned company through an ESOP program, (Employee Stock Ownership Program). The company became 100% employee owned in 2012. Every employee, from the person that quotes your requirement, to the person that ships your completed order and everyone in between, is an owner and has a direct stake in your satisfaction as a customer. We feel that this gives our customers an added benefit not found with many of our competitors. Whether the employee is responsible for order entry, coiler set-up, quality control, or shipping, each employee is strongly concerned about the total satisfaction of our customers because your satisfaction with Industrial Spring Corporation of Kansas City is what will make their company grow and prosper.
