Our Past...  Our Present...  Our Future...

In 1927, Raymond Thompson patented the first steel snare; a design that is still widely used today.  Mr. Thompson operated The Raymond Thompson Company until his death in the mid-1980's at which time ownership transferred to his grandson, Dick Sinrud.  Mr. Sinrud continued his grandfather's innovations in the snaring industry throughout his ownership in the company.  His most recent accomplishment being the patenting of the Thompson™ New Release Lock; a device that allows snaremen the opportunity to abide by state and federal cable restraint regulations while also allowing the re-use of some snares.  The company name was changed to Thompson Snares in 2007.
In June of 2009 we purchased the company from Mr. Sinrud and relocated the business to Northeast Missouri.  It is our goal to continue providing the same quality products and materials Thompson Snares has been known for over the last 85 years.  We continue to develop new ideas, applications and products to better serve our customers.  
Our commitment to God and family has given us the opportunity to carry on the tradition that began so many years ago by Raymond Thompson.  We look forward to continue serving our loyal customers as well as making new friends as we move forward.
