KMK Industries, Inc. is a 48-year-old Milwaukee Wisconsin company providing exhibits, displays, and related services to clients worldwide. Since 1969, KMK has established a reputation for quality work from conceptual design to finished product. We offer planning, design, and fabrication for all types of three-dimensional communications projects.
Our in-house design department has created and developed custom indoor and outdoor exhibits, mobile exhibits, interactive exhibits, point-of-purchase displays, museums, showrooms, lobby displays, and scale models. The designers are experienced in producing all types of graphics applications, as well as working with audio/visual media, interactive components, animation, and other innovative concepts. Our production and graphics departments include skilled exhibit technicians who, specializing in woodworking, painting, electrical, sign making, and more, execute the design from concept to reality. By maintaining all the needed talent in-house, we are able to achieve a high level of quality and timely completion on all our projects.
KMK Industries is also the Milwaukee-area partner and distributor for the quality portable products produced by Nimlok Company. As Nimlok’s oldest partner, KMK has been offering a full spectrum of custom and portable modular exhibits, environments, and solutions for 35 years.
We pride ourselves on establishing a partnering relationship with our clients. Our client list has grown to more than 100 customers, covering a broad range of industries, including construction machinery, machine tools, electrical equipment, consumer and medical products, insurance, utilities, government and museums. Many have been customers for more than 20 years, some since our inception. We are large enough to be expertly staffed, completely equipped and capable of efficiently producing all products in-house; yet small enough to maintain excellent service at fair prices.
Our goal is to assist our customers in achieving the maximum benefit from their marketing communications programs. We do this by providing high quality, creative and cost effective custom products and services. We are dedicated to long-term relationships with our customers, employees and community. Our development goals are steady growth, consistent profitability and recognized industry leadership.
