Back in 1968, our family founded Industrial Webbing Corporation, a small wholesale distributor of woven and braided narrow fabrics and trim. Over the years and with a lot of hard work, we branched out to include a full line of VELCRO® Brand Fasteners, elastic and non-elastic cord, and plastic and metal hardware. Then we expanded even further to offer specialty trims such as cloth knot buttons and apron ties, as well as foam rubber and fabrication equipment. In 2006, we decided to make our partnership with Velcro USA Inc. the main focus of our work. As a result, we are now one of the largest authorized Velcro USA Inc.

John & Emily Capraro,
Industrial Webbing Corporation
EMILY AND JOHN CAPRARO, no strangers to hard work, honed their business skills in the corporate world before teaming up to grow their family company.
Emily began her business career in 1999 at Cablevision, a leading New York-based telecommunications firm which provides millions of home and business customers with TV, internet, and phone service.
At Cablevision, Emily’s work soon earned her a promotion to Manager and then to Director, with responsibilities including hiring, payroll and benefits administration, conflict resolution, and employee evaluation.
After her proven successes working for someone else, Emily resolved to put her skills to use to help grow her own family’s business, Industrial Webbing Corp., in 2005.
She’s now responsible for overseeing IWC’s sales; customer service; warehouse operations, including shipping and receiving; purchasing, payroll and benefits management; and compliance reporting, as well as supervising and mentoring employees.
With all those duties, Emily still considers customer care her top priority every day.
“I really do believe in providing the best service experience for our customers,” she says.
“When I go shopping or to a restaurant, I always say to myself, ‘Wouldn’t it be great if someone truly cared about making my experience here a great one?’ That’s the way I treat my customers.”
Emily earned her Bachelor of Science degree from the State University of New York at Albany and her Master’s Degree in Human Resource Management from Mercy College.
John started a telecom career of his own at Cablevision in 1989.
He began his work assisting customers on site as a Field Service Technician. His abilities soon had him promoted to Supervisor and then to a Field Service Manager overseeing the work of a team of 55 technicians.
By 2001, Cablevision saw John’s abilities would make him the perfect fit for the executive position of Customer Service Manager, putting him in charge of a call center where he supervised the work of 100 employees.
With that experience in his portfolio, John joined IWC in 2003 as a New Business Development Manager.
Just three years later, he owned the company.
Today, John is responsible for marketing and advertising, web development, finances, and managing the IWC fabrication facility.
As part of his leadership role, John is also responsible for keeping on top of new research and development in the field and bringing in the up-to-the-minute fabrication equipment that gives IWC an unparalleled ability to offer customers the widest array of choices for their textile needs.
“When I joined IWC, I immediately saw an opportunity to bring a company that operated primarily by phone and fax into the modern era of online sales. I built a website, marketed it, and fine-tuned it until it bore fruit,” John says.
“I have never stopped pushing for improvement: We have completely overhauled our equipment and launched a full-service fabrication facility which has grown exponentially over the past six years,” says John, whose outside interests include landscape design and spending time with his wife and children.
“I look forward to expanding into new territory and helping both our loyal and new customers in the future.”
