KMC Controls was founded in 1969 by Ken Kreuter as Kreuter Manufacturing Company. We started humbly, engineering and manufacturing damper actuators, pneumatic-electric switches, and logic relays through private-label contracts with OEM partners. Gradually, the KMC product line grew to include variable air volume controllers and actuators. By 1989, we had expanded into our 100,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in New Paris, Indiana.

In 1996, we became a global distributor. Sales growth in international markets brought about an exciting new era of expansion and product development.

We were proud to earn ISO 9001 certification in 1997, which we’ve since upgraded to ISO 9001:2015, and we released our esteemed line of BACnet® open-protocol controllers in 2004.

Today, KMC continues to market innovative and intuitive solutions developed by responsive and supportive people. With a focus on quality and a dedication to open platform systems and support, we are well positioned to capitalize upon technological advancement to drive growth in new markets.
