K&S Millwrights Hires New Sales and Customer Relations Rep

Matt Rath K&S MillwrightsMatt Rath joined the K&S Millwrights team in late December 2015 as the new Sales and Customer Relations Representative. Matt’s customer service area includes a six state area in the Upper Midwest, comprised of Minnesota, Iowa, South Dakota, North Dakota, Wisconsin, and part of Nebraska.

Matt’s role in sales and customer relations will provide K&S Millwright customers with a consistent contact, someone who will be very familiar with their needs and goals. “I love stopping in and talking with people and listening to their stories,” says Matt. Trust, relationships, and incomparable agricultural knowledge is what K&S was founded on in 1994, and the addition of Matt in this role within the company strengthens the company’s commitment to its customers.

Matt explains, “When I’m talking to people, many are very familiar with K&S Millwright’s core services. They know we can build just about anything, but I’ve run into a few who are pleasantly surprised to learn of the other ways we can help keep their operation running smoothly.” Matt says their large inventory of parts and related repair services is something customers appreciate. “Even during the coldest of days, we can go in and make repairs and help customers avoid further interruption to their daily operations.”

Matt grew up on his family’s farm outside Buffalo Lake, MN. He knows K&S as a business and has extensive agricultural knowledge, which has helped Matt quickly embrace his new role. “It’s great to have Matt a part of our team, as he knows our business first hand and possesses a vast knowledge of the agricultural industry. His personality and ability to respond to our customers is a great addition for our company. We are excited for the extra customer service support he will provide.” If you need to get a hold of Matt to discuss an upcoming project or any immediate need, please call K&S Millwrights or Matt’s cell phone at 320-583-2120.

Starting with our project design and CAD drawings, we also offer our excavation equipment and skilled operators for your site prep, to our cranes and boom trucks with certified operators.

Our Open House in June

Earlier this summer our customers, business associates, friends and family joined together to celebrate this milestone at our “Customer Appreciation Open House”. Our team at K&S Millwrights was so pleased to welcome so many people to a relaxing day of business with fellowship and good food, entertainment and laughter.  We thank you for our trust and friendships that have been made over the years and appreciate you taking the time to come celebrate with us. To those who had other obligations that day, you are welcome to come visit with us anytime! Humbly, we appreciate you and say THANK YOU!

“We wanted to take this opportunity to bring everyone together for a great day of relaxing fellowship and to provide an open venue that shows who we are and what we can provide for you. Because we are always going to the customers’ sites, the Anniversary Open House was a great opportunity to get everyone to come here; to see who all of K&S is, where we come from and all that we can offer. We heard multiple comments from customers say ‘you’ve seen us, and it is great to see your operation as well.

It was a very successful day of business at our trade show, mixed with some awesome food provided by Chef Craig from Arlington, MN and our evening entertainer, farmer/comedian Jerry Carroll. There are just no words to express our total appreciation and gratitude to all those who have made this company what it is today. Obviously, the high level of service to our customers has come from not only management, but our employees as well. We can’t thank them enough for their dedication and professionalism that supports who K&S Millwrights is, and what so many customers have come to expect. Customers, employees, business associates, family, and friends have all had an impact on our last twenty years. No matter where you are on that list, we can’t thank you enough for the role you have played in our lives. With the grace of God, as we move forward into the next years, we continue to pray for success, peace, and prosperity for all.” Brad and Susan Krumrey
