ABOUT US

WHO WE ARE

Kohler Industries is game changing food processing equipment, backed by technical expertise and good old fashioned Midwestern values. We take pride in providing the new, used, and fully rebuilt equipment that works as hard as you do, keeping your production moving. Every machine that comes out of our facility is rigorously tested to maintain Kohler quality standards, and ships straight from our shop in Lincoln, NE to your plant. At Kohler, we’re driving innovation in food processing by building stronger customer relationships grounded in your continued success.

Run Lean

We foster a culture of continuous motion. We’re always reaching, doing more with less.

Do Good

We believe in extending good work beyond the workplace, treating others fairly, and taking pride in everything we do.

YOUR CAREER STARTS HERE

OUR STORY

Before we were an industry leader in equipment manufacturing, we were Kohler Industries Inc. Founded in 1975, the early years were focused on meat processing, producing quality products for our local customers. After finding success in food processing equipment sales, we changed gears to begin focusing strictly on the sale of hard assets.

We quickly recognized that expensive, proprietary equipment created longer lead times and inflated maintenance costs for our customers. By building our food processing equipment with standardized parts and shipping faster than the competition, we’re leading an industry revolution driven by our customers. Our top priority is to keep your costs down and your production running smoothly.

OUR FACILITY

In 2012, we began expanding our manufacturing facility to accommodate our growing fabrication needs. Kohler Industries now houses over 7 acres of equipment inventory as well as 7 active machine shops. We own the largest inventory of used food processing equipment in the nation, meaning we cut out the middle man to deliver your equipment faster.
