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.

Stay tuned in 50 more years for the 100th anniversary edition!
