Kundel Industries, Inc. started in the dining room of the Kundel family household by contractor Robert Kundel Sr. Having 30 years experience in the excavating business, family roots deeply embedded in construction and fueled by the down turn in the construction market in the late 80's Robert found himself re-evaluating his situation in construction.

Working with a local engineer, Robert used his background in construction to develop a trench box that was designed around the contractor's needs. These boxes were designed around real world usage including pipe length, excavator capabilities, soil conditions, and contractor usage by re-enforcing areas most common for driving and abuse.

The challenge of building a better box taxed Kundel's material movement ability. The numerous sub-assemblies required a constant state of transition and one large overhead crane was not going to cut it. The larger overhead crane was shut down and a series or parallel runways were hung along with multiple bridges on each set of runways. These cranes were developed by Kundel Industries, Inc. engineering team by using concepts from ages past like pendulating runways and articulating bridges. These concepts provided smooth traveling second to none and reduced any stress incurred to the supporting structure. Kundel Industries, Inc. will continue to not only build the best equipment in the industry, but have committed to improving and perfecting the products we produce.
