About KSPT


"When you want people to perform, stand back and let them."

The idea of empowerment is simply to give the people who do the work equal measures of authority and responsibility for anything that affects their work. At KSPT, we do that full-time. The result: each one of us keeps an eye on the big picture, concerned with the end product of every operation. We are all aware of the contribution each individual can make to the success of the company and our future.

So you can depend on our Sales Engineers to turn your machining problems into success stories. Look to our teams of skilled machine operators who are totally responsible for their group's performance. And, count on Customer Service Representatives who are friendly and helpful in several languages. Wherever you turn, you can rely on people who are committed to doing the job right today and doing it better tomorrow.

To advance as a company, all of us receive continuous improvement training at the KSPT Learning Center. Here, our own associates, after special training, lead classes that focus on improving interpersonal skills, solving problems as a team, and developing excellence. We also "grow our own", developing specialized technicians in a certified apprentice program recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor.

The Sum: KSPT tools outperform others, because KSPT people do.
