Picture the Changes at K&S!

In 1994 Donna Moraz visited K&S Millwrights for the first time. Now, 22 years later Donna got the opportunity to revisit with longtime business associates and friends, Susan and Brad Krumrey. What Donna found at K&S during her recent tour were vast changes and growth over the past couple of decades.

DeeRoss Company, Inc., Donna’s company has been a supplier of buckets, pulleys, belting, liners, level sensors and more to K&S Millwrights since May of 1994 when K&S first opened. At that time, Donna was working with K&S as small business comprised of only Susan and Brad. Susan conducted business out of a quonset garage building, and Brad was often working out of his truck. Donna remembers “there was no fabrication shop, no K&S branded trailers, no auto-cad engineering, no onsite inventory, and no cranes. Today, K&S has all of that!”

“It was clear from what I saw that their ability to respond quickly to customer needs is really outstanding.”

It’s fantastic to be able to glance at your own business through the eyes of someone else who can easily identify changes from his or her perspective. Donna was gracious enough to share the pictures she took on her recent tour and what struck her as remarkable, noting, “it was clear from what I saw that their ability to respond quickly to customer needs is really outstanding.”
