History In 1970, Ken Kreuter established Kreuter Manufacturing Company in Winnipeg, Manitoba to manufacturing pneumatic HVAC controls. In 1974, the company was moved to Minnesota, and in 1978, the company moved manufacturing operations to its present location in New Paris, Indiana. In 1989, the research and development side of the business (then known as Kreuter Engineering) made the transition from Minnesota to Indiana as well in order to consolidate all company operations. In 1995, Kreuter Manufacturing Company, Inc. began doing business as KMC Controls, Inc., a name change that better explained its business. Over the decades, analog electronic and then DDC (Direct digital Control) products were added to the original pneumatic line.
Products KMC Controls started with manufacturing pneumatic HVAC control products, including controllers, actuators, valves, and other related devices. A pneumatic control circuit operates on air pressure (typically between 3 and 13 pounds PSI) and used mechanical means to perform control functions.
Although pneumatic controls are still in widespread use, electric and analog electronic controls later became the standard. KMC manufacturers electronic sensors, variable air volume controllers, actuators, valves and other devices that often operate with zero to 10 volts DC analog signals.
Today, the standard is micro-processor-based direct digital controls that process a variety of analog and binary inputs and outputs. KMC offers controllers and software in its KMDigital line using proprietary protocol as well as a BACnet line with an open systems protocol. Still Made in the U.S.A. KMC products are both designed and manufactured in the U.S.A., and have been for over 40 years.
