When Bob McNichols founded the company in 1952, he focused on selling products with “holes” such as perforated and expanded metal.

It was this focus on holes that led to our logo, “The Hole Story,” which goes beyond just holes, it symbolizes the company’s philosophy. Bob McNichols, and his successor Gene, built the McNICHOLS business on a solid Christian foundation that combines fast delivery with superior customer service.

Today, McNICHOLS has 17 service centers and 28 Field Sales Managers (FSMs) nationwide. The newest addition is our service center located in Kansas City. At McNICHOLS, we strive to provide superior Service, Quality and Performance.

possible customer service,
then we aren’t doing our job.”
