During the late 1940's an industrial salesman named C.L. Masters heard many of his northern Wisconsin customers ask if he knew of a source for better quality industrial knives.Responding to the demands, Masters dedicated his time and talents to the research and development of a better product. Over the course of the next 20 years, rapid growth moved the manufacturing operation from a small shop in his garage to the most advanced facility manufacturing industrial knives in Greendale, Wisconsin, a suburb of Milwaukee. The company is now owned and managed by Jared and Cash, the third generation of the Masters Family. Together, they continue their father, Joseph, and grandfather, C.L. ‘s tradition of excellence, quality and the historic legacy of craftsmanship that began in 1948.The future continues to look bright as Cash's son Clayton is the fourth generation to work at Kinetic. He is learning the business from the ground up. Since 1948, Kinetic has had exposive growth, expanding far beyond a garage and now on a 10-acre site in South Suburban Milwaukee. In order to make the finest industrial knives and hardened wear products, you must have highly trained employees, the finest metal working equipment available, the best steel melted and rolled, and an awesome facility. Here at Kinetic, we have all of those qualities plus more!
