K&K Industries - Distributor Spotlight

K&K Industries was founded in 1972 by Abe A. Knepp with the philosophy of dealing honestly and fairly while providing high quality service and products. Located in Montgomery, Indiana, K&K Industries specializes in providing customized trusses at an affordable price.

They help their clients find solutions to the myriad of challenges associated with trusses, including length span and warping. By custom manufacturing their trusses, K&K Industries seeks to make the on-site installation as efficient as possible, and they’ve turned to engineered wood to make it happen, specifically LP® SolidStart® LSL.

“In a room-in-attic truss with rooms sixteen feet or larger, traditional lumber can warp or twist as it goes through moisture cycles,” Knepp said. And, unfortunately, builders know those cycles can cause unevenness in the ceiling. However, Knepp has found that LSL lays true and straight even at longer lengths. Those longer lengths allow K&K Industries to help their customers cut down on the need for splicing timber together on-site, saving both time and money.

“With LSL, we can design long span trusses that simply are not available out there,” Knepp said.

K&K Industries not only manufactures custom roof trusses but also makes customized wood floor trusses and wall panels as well as laminated beams and I-joists. The company uses LP® SolidStart® LVL, LP® SolidStart® I-Joists, LP® TechShield® Radiant Barrier Sheathing, LP® FlameBlock® Fire-Rated OSB Sheathing, LP® OSB Sheathing, LP® TopNotch® Sub-Flooring, and LP® SmartSide® Trim & Siding to meet their customers’ needs.n
