Our amazing associates (known as "Hole Team"), vast inventory choices, and comprehensive fabrication services are three great reasons to choose McNICHOLS.

We take pride in fulfilling your requirements, meeting your timeline, and following through on every detail. Our skilled, knowledgeable associates are ready and Inspired to Serve® at every location, every time!

We trace our customer-focused culture back to the example set by Robert L. "Bob" McNichols, who founded the company on Christian values, high ethical standards, and a commitment to customer satisfaction. Today, the family-owned business carries these same core values forward under the leadership of Chairman and CEO, Gene McNichols and President, Scott McNichols.

The Hole Story® describes Bob's journey from World War II solider to company founder and visionary. His ethical standards and giving spirit inspired a tradition of serving others still evident today. Our In the Community page highlights some of the ways we choose to give back to others in need, in both our local regions and around the world.
