Company Profile Request update info.
We have been proudly open for business since 1972 when our founder, Daniel F. Nigro, a WWII veteran who served as a CID investigator for the Army, branched out from being a self-employed manufacturer’s rep to opening Kleer-Fax in a 4,000 sq. foot facility in Mineola, NY. The company was then relocated to a nearby 6,000 sq. foot facility in 1974, the same year that our current president, Louis Nigro, joined the ranks.
Originally, we were a regional manufacturer, servicing areas from Boston to Baltimore. As the world got smaller with technological innovations and more affordable transportation/shipping methods, we grew our product line and territory. In 1982, we moved into our own 40,000 sq. foot facility in Amityville, NY, which was expanded another 35,000 sq. feet by 1994 when we acquired the Saldan Bindery, a company that diversified our product line from solely being about indexing to include expandable filing products.
Our line of quality office products currently includes:
Printed and insertable index tabs
Recycled legal exhibit tabs
Reinforced filler paper
In addition to all of this, our customers can also have products that are unique to them by getting in touch with our Custom Department.
At Kleer-Fax, we believe in green initiatives, which is why we have been a member of the Forest Stewardship Council since 2009. We also believe in keeping manufacturing jobs in America. There have been many opportunities presented to us to move the company to locations offshore where we are told that we could increase our bottom line, but our bottom line is not merely composed of the profits we keep at the end of the day; it is also encompassed in the good we do for those who work hard at our factory, the average of whom have been here 15 years or longer.
Over the years we have succeeded in reaching several goals: we maintain our entire operation under one roof, we make all of our goods in America, almost every one of our 2,700 products are made from recycled materials, and our products are of high quality and sold at a competitive price.
