Feeling Lucky?

KEP is LUCKY to partner with many great companies and we want to say THANK YOU for choosing us to bring your products to life! From Fortune 500 companies with continued growth to new products that are beginning to take the industry by stride, we are proud to be a part of all of your innovation and success.

From prototype to finished product, we are dedicated to helping our customers exceed their goals – our experience includes streamlining processes to make product competitively priced, designing new machines for efficient in-house assembly and more. Working with our great partners has allowed us to continually build our expertise with an ever-evolving and advancing pool of industries.

A good partnership is like a four-leaf clover: hard to find and lucky to have. We’re lucky to have our customers – but what makes the companies we work with lucky to have us? Some of what we like to discuss with our new customers before getting started helps to paint this mutually beneficial picture.
