Midwest Manufacturing and Female Owned

K&S is a privately held and financially sound company which is female-owned.

An agile manufacturing approach allows us to meet compressed timelines for a variety of customers in very competitive markets. A commitment to continuous improvement and vertical integration drives our ongoing investment in people, processes, and technology. K&S also invests in the latest, state of the art equipment housed in our modern facilities.

K&S only manufactures for our customers. We do not manufacture our own branded products. This ensures we are focused solely on generating competitive advantage for our customers.

Thomas Klusken, a military veteran, founded K&S Tool & Die in 1974. Servicing major OEMs, he had the vision to evolve K&S into a vertically integrated contract manufacturer. Our rich heritage as die makers and tool manufacturers—coupled with our manufacturing execution system—delivers supplier-led innovation. The outcome of his vision and the confidence entrusted in K&S over 40 years is reflected in the diverse markets we currently serve.
