mk North America – Conveyor Manufacturer & T-Slot Aluminum Extrusion Company

mk North America company sign outside buildingmk North America, Inc., was founded in 1988 as mk Automation Engineering, Inc. and is the independently operated North American headquarters of the mk Technology Group.


Maschinenbau Kitz GmbH, the forerunner of the mk Technology Group, began designing and building conveyors for sale in 1971, and by 1984 had already sold over 1,000 units. 

T-Slot Aluminum Framing

mk's t-slot aluminum framing system, the backbone for many of the products offered worldwide by mk today, was introduced in the 1982 Maschinenbau Kitz GmbH in Troisdorf-Bergheim, Germany. 

Conveyors & T-Slot Aluminum Framing

The modular design, flexibility and rugged durable nature of the mk product lines were just some of the many reasons mk North America's founder Andreas Tietje wanted to bring this conveyor line and t-slot aluminum extrusions to the North American marketplace. 

mk's aluminum extrusion is a highly engineered and structurally sound t-slot extrusion, and lends itself well to being the basic structure components in the conveyors built by mk.

In 2013 mk North America, using it's strong foundational knowledge of conveyor design, launched a line of conveyors for the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. In 2014, mk North America's CleanMove conveyor line was granted it's trademark.

With the success of CleanMove, mk North America, began looking into trademarking and further developing their line of pallet-handling conveyor systems. Having built these types of conveyors since 2001, creating a separate brand for them was the next logical step – and thus the VersaMove line was born. With the trademark on this line granted in 2016. VersaMove pallet-handling conveyors proved to be such a success and unique product line that in 2019 a separate webpage, www.mkversamove.com was launched dedicated to serving this customer base.

Since mk North America is both a t-slot aluminum extrusion supplier and a conveyor manufacturer, mk is able to offer custom solutions others cannot.
