About Us

Expect Excellence - Quality, Selection, Service and Price

JK Findings' talented staff are key to providing the high quality work our customers expect.

JK Findings is a manufacturer and wholesaler of jewelry findings with headquarters in Rochester, NY and a sales office in Hong Kong. John Kaupp, the founder and original owner, started the business in 1975 as a wholesaler but decided to insource the manufacturing process to better control supply chain quality and produce more innovative product offerings. Over its long history, Mr. Kaupp built JK Findings into an industry leading designer and manufacturer of high-quality jewelry findings, renowned for its excellent customer service. In addition, he developed a strong management team, including 20-year veteran, Joni Lucas, who now serves as Chief Executive Officer. In 2020 JK Findings was acquired by Latitude 27 Capital, LLC, a private investment firm that supports small and middle market companies. Under the new ownership, the Company will maintain its commitment to outstanding quality, delivery, and customer support while enhancing its new product development, geographic presence, and technological achievement.

JK Findings' overarching strategy is to provide value to our customers by offering a broad portfolio of high-quality products and services at competitive prices.Acquisition Strategy
