The economy in 2004 for KTM proved to be a strong.  Customer orders levels where higher than the previous years have been.  This allow us to maintain a strong backlog of orders all year.  As a result, many of our employees achieved record levels of overtime in an effort to satisfy our customer delivery schedules.  Congratulation to all of KTM's employees for their efforts.   Our customer's demands for higher volumes and increase level of on-time deliveries, created a need for us to add 5 additional OKK CNC mills during the year.

As the economy for  manufacturing has reduced in the last few years, this business situation has forced  KTM to stream line our manufacturing processes and our work force. For the year 2003 we plan to continue increasing our productively and provide a higher quality produces to our customers at a lower cost. 

Happy new year and have a great year.

As many people may have heard Matco  Machine in St. Louis, MO ceased operation in June 2000.

Afterwards, we made arrangements to purchase their largest Blanchard Grinder.  The auction was in Oct 2000 during which we also purchased a 42" X 144" Mattison Surface Grinder.  We are expecting to have both machines set up and running by the end of the year.  

We look forward in serving your needs  by offering honest delivery schedules and reasonable pricing.
