Why do brands work with KI Industries?

kii safety


KI Industries was founded in 1964 by Bob Goltermann with a focus on providing innovative injection-molded components at a fair price to customers. Numerous members of the Goltermann family have worked at KI, and three family members sit on the Board of Directors today. KI quickly became a leading supplier of high-quality decorative parts by developing mutually beneficial working relationships with the largest brand names in the automotive and appliance industries.


The company pioneered many of the technologies that are used in the injection molding industry today and has begun to expand a new portfolio of products into additional markets. Additionally, KI was an early adopter of the concept of a global manufacturing footprint. Our associates work closely with our customers and utilize these innovations to help develop solutions for their product needs. From engineering design, to quality, to logistics, KI has earned a reputation as a reliable and consistent global supplier of quality solutions. Our solutions make our customers ideas come to life.

Not surprisingly, KI has been voted a “Best Places to Work” by Plastics News for five consecutive years, and by Crain’s Chicago Business for four years. We like to consider ourselves as happy employees who provide outstanding support to our customers.
