What happened 40 years ago?
- “Space Invaders” arcade game launched the video game craze
- The Garfield comic strip was first published in newspapers
- The Illinois Bell Company introduced the first ever Cellular Mobile Phone System
- …and Koss Industrial, Inc. was founded in 1978!
We’ve passed a milestone and we’re celebrating 40 years of innovation!
Today marks the fortieth year that Koss Industrial, Inc. has been manufacturing custom stainless steel equipment in Green Bay, Wisconsin!
Recently retired co-founders of Koss Industrial, Inc. – Brothers John (former President) and Joe (former Vice President) have dedicated over 50 years of their lives to serving cheesemakers. With business degrees from Green Bay Badger Business College, the brothers are also former licensed cheesemakers who worked in their family’s plant (Badger State Cheese) until about 40 years ago. That’s when the brothers decided they liked building & improving equipment better than making cheese.
The business the brothers created in 1978 now employs a team of over 75, serving customers both locally and internationally. Koss Industrial, Inc. is now providing superior quality sanitary equipment, systems, and services throughout & beyond the dairy industry; food, beverage, pharma, industrial, and now contract manufacturing.
