Our History

KTI was founded in 1990 by Lou Kocsis Sr. Lou came to the United States with his wife from Yugoslavia with only two gold coins in their pocket. They wanted to escape Communism and chase the American Dream.

Lou was a skilled tradesman, and he started his own machine shop, Kocsis Brothers Machine Co. As Kocsis Brothers grew, Lou decided to buy our hydraulic starter and accumulator product lines from American Bosch. These product lines gave birth to Kocsis Technologies.
