GK celebrates 50 year anniversary.

This month we are celebrating 50 years of General Kinematics in business. Started in 1960 by Albert Musschoot, the company has grown from a small store front office to a global corporation with offices all over the world. To celebrate this event, GK invited all employees, partners, and other prominent guests to celebrate the milestone on a half day cruise on Lake Michigan. Below are some pictures from the event.

GK has also published a short book on the history of the company, highlighting the history, the machines, and people that made the company what it is today.
