July 3, 1090 FIN – Haskell of Huntington, Inc. Huntington, West Virginia, installed a complete thread testing lab equipped with segment type thread gaging instruments purchased from the Johnson Gage Co.

According to Wesley A. Sites, sales manager and contract administrator, the lab allows the company to comply with all dimensional requirements set forth ANSI, ASME, Federal Standard H28/20A, Mil-S-7742, Mil-S-88709, and Mil-S-1222H.

Haskell of Huntington is a manufacturer of non-ferrous standard and special hex head cap screws and double ended studs, using stainless steel, naval brass, aluminum, silicon bronze, and monel. The company also manufacturers hex nuts from all those materials except stainless steel. Specializing in the military and government markets, Haskell also supplies directly and through distribution OEM markets such as the aerospace and marine industries.

Haskell Co., formerly located in Rhode Island. United Huntington, formed to create jobs for people affected local steel mill shut down, operates a number of companies including Haskell of Huntington.

Holding management positions at Haskell for about a year now are Don Knotek, manufacturing manager, who was previously manufacturing manager at Pioneer Screw & Nut; Wesley A. Sites (mentioned above); and Brenda Harshbarger, controller.
