Zakobe Metal Stampings was founded in 2005 by us, Wade and Teresa Karnes, a husband and wife team, as a means to support our dream of living in our hometown area in northern Minnesota.  We both saw a need for quality metal stampings with great customer service.  With a combined 40 years of experience in manufacturing and business, we have now grown the company substantially and formed Zakobe, LLC in 2016. 

We started out with very humble beginnings.  The first manufacturing facility was less than 800 square feet.  Once we started the business we had our first job within a few days of opening the doors.  We have never looked back.  It was important to us that we grow slowly, keeping the business manageable so we could maintain a high standard of customer service and quality stampings.  In 2016 the business took another stride as we bought a 6,500 square foot facility and added additional press capacity to help keep up with demand.
