Kist Corp was founded by Rick Spahic, a seasoned electrical contractor for almost 20 years. Ricks desire for a solution to eliminate electrical ground faults came after his company experienced a costly repair. An expensive retrofit had to be performed that cost nearly $20,000. The insulation had been damaged while pulling wire. Rick knew this was a common problem in the industry.
Rick saw the need to have a smooth, full radius around each connector so that wire would pull freely without the fear of damaging the insulation. Hence, the Slicknut was born and the results were more amazing than he had ever dreamed of.
With the Slicknut his employees were not fatigued with aches and pains from the stress of pulling. They were doing their job with ease and his projects were finishing ahead of schedule.
Rick started Kist Corp and put together a world class team of manufacturers. The products are all made in America by highly trained CNC machinists utilizing the latest robotically loaded equipment. Slicknuts are machined to rigorous standards to ensure they fit on connectors from all brands of manufacturers.
