Bloomfield, Conn. – Leading conveyor system designer and manufacturer mk North America is celebrating 30 years in business and has announced the release of a new informational video overviewing the company’s products and services to commemorate the occasion.

A Brief History

The U.S. subsidiary of Maschinenbau Kitz, a German machine builder, mk got its start back in 1988 when Andreas Tietje founded the original location in Simsbury, CT. In the beginning, the company, known as mk Automation Engineering, was focused on t-slot aluminum extrusion and the many things that could be made using this system including conveyors – which has become a large part of its business over the years.

In 1996, mk moved to 105 Highland Park Dr. in Bloomfield where it’s still currently based. In May 2010, the company changed its name to mk North America, Inc. and 2012 purchased the building on an adjacent lot to add more space in support of its growing product line.

With rapid growth continuing and demand increasing from manufacturers, the company then joined its two facilities together in 2013 and also introduced a series of new products to the market including its CleanMove stainless steel conveyors. By 2014 they branded their VersaMove pallet conveyors which they had been making since the 1990s and have continued to help companies across the globe meet productivity, sanitation and project requirements in an array of industries.

Today, mk North America continues to offer its solutions worldwide including aluminum and stainless conveyors, pallet handling systems and extruded aluminum framing that provide unsurpassed variety, maximum flexibility and easy integration for machine builders, systems integrators and manufacturing companies around the globe. 

October 1st will mark a successful 30 years in business and in honor of this important milestone,
mk North America has released a new video spotlighting the company, their product offerings, and its mission.  

“mk stands behind the promise of delivering a better product and a better solution by offering exceptional customer support from concept to completion and beyond,” commented Andreas Haussmann, President. 

“At mk North America we believe that our people make the difference. It’s their ingenuity, their passion and their dedication that makes mk stand out as the leading manufacturer of standard and custom material handling solutions.”
