Knaack LLC, a maker of
jobsite storage products, will start a yearlong 50th anniversary celebration next
The celebration begins May
6 with a press event at the company’s Crystal Lake, Ill., headquarters, and
will include an employee party two days later.
“We would like to thank all
the folks who made the first 50 years of Knaack possible,” said company
President Chad Severson.
“Our gratitude begins with the folks who use our products for a
living, to trusted channel partners, and to both current and prior employees of
Knaack. Finally, we’d like to recognize our suppliers, for without their help
along the way, we wouldn’t be observing this wonderful milestone.”
