Kemp had great success selling Stanley to an upcoming distributor, Montgomery Ward Company (MWC). Kemp developed a close personal relationship with the tool buyer at MWC, Joe Cashmore. Cashmore and Kemp fast became close business associates and close personal friends. Soon thereafter Kemp hired Cashmores’ Son, Dick to work as warehouse help after graduating from University of Illinois. Quickly, Dick proved himself and was promoted to sales. Dick excelled in sales and was soon the number one revenue producer for Kemp. As payment, Kemp offered Dick a portion of the company’s stock. In 1958, Irving S. Kemp died. Dick purchased the remaining stock and named the company I.S.K. Industries in memory of his mentor Irving S. Kemp.
