The K-Rain Story - "Make it Better"
You don't have to be a rocket scientist to make irrigation equipment, but it can sure be an advantage. Just ask Carl Kah, founder of K-Rain Manufacturing Corporation. The company's genesis began in the early 1970's when Carl managed the U.S. Air Force's reusable rocket engine program in West Palm Beach, Florida. While playing around with his backyard sprinkler system, Carl developed and patented a modulated pressure control concept that was ideally applicable for golf course irrigation.
One patent led to another and today Carl has more than 100 patents specific to the irrigation industry. As the patents multiplied and the company grew, so did the scope of K-Rain's operation. In 1986, Carl gave his exclusive attention to product design, improvement and innovation and turned the presidency of the company to his son, Chip. Under Chip's direction, K-Rain has expanded its market and product lines, more than doubling its national and international sales.
Headquartered in West Palm Beach, Florida, today more than 250 men and women make up the K-Rain team, including manufacturing facilities in the Dominican Republic and sales offices in China and Europe.
"We love what we do. Everyday we go to work with one thought: Make it better."
