While living in Germany, Karl Baake Sr. worked as a tool-and-die maker. He wanted a way to protect lights from breaking or malfunctioning when flying sparks entered the work area. For years, he worked to perfect a design for a shatterproof work light. After emigrating to the US, Mr. Baake completed his design, founding KH Industries in 1960. Then in 2020, KH Industries acquired assets from a company in Ohio to form Alert Reel Manufacturing, as a partner company. Many original products Karl Baake Sr. designed almost 60 years ago are still in demand and used by industry leaders today.
KH Industries’ investment in new manufacturing technologies and systems rapidly responds to customers’ needs while ensuring its product is of the highest quality. Today, and historically, the KH Industries difference is the durable design that goes into every product we manufacture.
Products are market-driven to meet the needs of the end user, their application, and environment. Safety is of paramount concern, as well as functionality and reliability. KH Industries’ Engineering team partners with several National Recognized Testing Laboratories, as well as KH staff and customers to ensure the product will meet and exceed functionality and safety standards.
Materials are selected for their ability to provide a long lasting service and durability in harsh and extreme environments. KH’s state of the art manufacturing facility allows for a vertically integrated manufacturing and production process. By controlling the production of components KH can ensure you receive a consistent finished product of the highest quality.
