From becoming a company to expanding product offerings
KDK Produces upset and press forgings. We have been producing them for some of the leading companies in America for more than fifty years. Companies that demand the very best in precision and quality choose KDK. KDK began forging components in 1947. We have been making advancements in our processes ever since then.
We began as a company that was primarily making war time parts, WWII that is. Torsion bars were our main product and there was no shortage of work to be done during and after the war. Since then we have expanded into many different industries. We work in the automotive, agriculture, mining, industrial tool, and military industries to name a few. We have increased the amount of products that we used to produce by a few hundred fold.
We have changed with the times and kept current with manufacturing technologies. Today, we keep competitive with other manufacturers by listening to our customers and providing services to them.
