Kencove and Gripple Announce Exclusive Partnership

Gripple, Inc, worldwide manufacturer of Gripple tensioners and tools, and Kencove Farm Fence are excited to announce a partnership that makes Kencove one of only two master distributors of Gripple products in the United States.

Gripples’ cutting edge products paired with Kencove’s warehouse locations and shipping efficiency allows Gripple to streamline distribution and delivery times.

Current Gripple customers will still enjoy the same low pricing, but with five warehouses throughout the United States and a staff of product specialists, customers can count on Kencove to have the product in stock, to ship it the next day, and to provide customer service for orders, troubleshooting, and installation.

“Gripple has had a great relationship with Kencove for many years, and we are proud to expand on this partnership. Their nationwide reach and emphasis on customer service makes them a perfect choice for exclusive distribution,” said Payne Hall, Gripple’s Business Development Manager.

“Kencove has sold Gripple products for many, many years, and it’s been amazing to see the market grow and expand. We are very excited to continue the growth of this product through our nationwide distribution. We are committed to providing the best prices and customer service to current Gripple customers,” explained John McConnell, Kencove General Manager.

The partnership officially began on January 1, 2019. Kencove will continue to stock a full line of Gripple tensioners and tensioning tools, while adding bulk packs of tensioners – bags of 20 and boxes of 200 – for contractors, retailers, and fence installers.

For more information, or to place orders, customers can contact Gilbert Woodley, Kencove product specialist at 1-800-536-2683 or email
