Every Need Deserves the Right Solution

Automation is a vast universe and every project has its own unique personality. While most automation solutions are modular in nature, they rarely fit projects as they should. This is why we exist. 

Automation opportunities in food manufacturing in particular are met with a lot of “No’s”. We believe in building a tailored solution for your unique needs. Invite us into the conversation today

Our Story

In 1949, Jerel’s great grandfather founded a manufacturing plant in Idaho. From the beginning, we have worked closely with food manufacturers to provide food handling equipment and conveyors of all sorts. 

Three generations later, we’ve built on that dedication and industrious drive. In 2016, we added a technology division – Kaitech Automation. Jerel joined forces with Robert, an experienced and talented engineer who stretches ideas far outside the box. Together we’ve built partnerships with companies who develop some of the most advanced technology in material handling and robotics.

We have the history, the experience, and the ingenuity to design and build perfectly tailored solutions. Exactly what you need.
