In the tradition with which the company was established, a number of family members contribute to the day to day manufacturing excellence that is K & K Manufacturing. LE, the owner, has been working in the manufacturing industry since his days at MidWestern Instruments (later known as Telex Computer Products) before starting K & K in 1967. His son Mikel has worked at K & K since graduating high school in 1971 and oversees the shop and is chief inspector. Daughter Sandra has been with the company since 1977 and handles contracts, purchasing, and production control. Grandson Adam has been with the company since 1998 and grandson Joshua since 2003. Both have learned the business from the ground up including CNC Programming. This equates to over 150 years of combined manufacturing excellence.
