The name Kundel has been known in the construction industry since the early 1950’s, when Robert Kundel Sr., president of Kundel Industries, worked with his father, Steve Kundel, at Kundel Construction. Having 30 years experience in the excavating business and family roots deeply embedded in construction, Robert Sr. started Kundel Industries in the dining room of the Kundel family household. Working with a local engineer, Robert used his background to develop a trench box that was designed around the contractor’s needs; taking into consideration pipe length, excavator capabilities, soil conditions, and contractor usage by re-enforcing areas most common for driving and abuse. In 1987 Kundel Industries forged its way into the trenching industry with the introduction of the original Titan Trench Shield.
Now, a new generation of the Kundel family has grown up in the industry and become a part of recent advancements in technology that are emerging in the market today. Many young and ambitious people, some with humble beginnings, have joined the family and worked diligently in becoming an integral part of the Kundel team and great leaders of the business today. As a result, Kundel has grown from a meager 2,000 square foot facility to well over 50,000 square feet. In recent years Kundel has been able to develop a full line of trench shielding and shoring equipment, including the acquisition of the Allied TrenShore line. The Kundel name has always been synonymous with the best product and best customer service; but what Kundel Industries prides itself most on is its employees. Without their commitment to our customers, we would not have become the company we are today. A company is only as good as its leaders, so we invite you to become a part of our family and build a better tomorrow with the innovative and versatile shielding & shoring product lines of Kundel.
