Optimizing space – and enhancing employee and company performance in the process.

Our History

Downloadable Brochure

After spending the majority of their lives in the storage and material handling industry, founders, William A. Kraft Sr. and Patricia H. Kraft started Kraftwerks in 1990 along with sons, William A. Kraft Jr., Mike Kraft, Paul Kraft and daughter, Ann Marie Ziske (Kraft). As a family-operated business, they had a vision of putting to use their decades of experience to create value for their customers and build long-lasting relationships.

While the company started off primarily as a distributor and sales organization for storage and materials handling equipment, it has since evolved into a one-stop source for customers across the U.S. in need of:

  • High Density Automated Storage & Retrieval Systems (ASRS)
  • Laboratory Casework & Fume Hoods
  • Multi-Story Catwalk & Mezzanine Systems
  • Ergonomic Workstations & Lifts
  • Installation & Preventative Maintenance

Besides enhanced service offerings, the company’s physical space has grown in order to accommodate customer demand. Today, Kraftwerks’ state-of-the art facility boasts in-house fabrication, cutting, welding and painting services, along with a complete installation, prevention and maintenance department.
