Kuhn Krause hosted the I Make America campaign at its Hutchinson, Kansas location last weekend to celebrate the company’s 100th anniversary.
Kuhn Krause welcomed more than 600 employees, their families and members of the community to an open house and factory tour. The event was the second I Make America event hosted by a Kuhn division this year; Kuhn North America welcomed IMA to its Brodhead, Wisconsin headquarters in early April.
Krause, which was acquired by Kuhn in 2011 and became Kuhn Krause, was founded in 1916 in Kansas, and grew as a manufacturer of tillage equipment and grain drills. In the years since, Kuhn has invested in the facility’s production and implemented new technology.
Kuhn North America President and AEM Ag Sector Board Member Greg Petras spoke at the event, where he recognized milestone employees and retirees.
I Make America was able to gather dozens of new supporters during the event, one of many at manufacturers of agricultural equipment this year.
