From the beginning, the company has produced top quality products, at fair prices, that have stood the test of time. Founder Ken Newton Crowder started the business with the idea that he wouldn’t put his name on the product unless he was 100 percent sure that his customers would be satisfied. This satisfaction and pride in their products is still their top priority. KNC builds its products to last, whether it is the long Canadian winters or the salty southern air, the aluminum extrusions live up to their legacy around the globe.

Title: Vice President, KN Crowder

Jeremy Crowder is responsible for overseeing the ongoing operations and management of KN Crowder. His major focus is North American sales and product development. Jeremy works closely with architects and specification writers to ensure KN Crowder is developing products that help the end user.

KN Crowder, founded by Kenneth Crowder, Jeremy’s grandfather, is in its 70th year of business and the third generation of Crowders. Jeremy was born into the hardware business, like his father, Peter. Prior to working for KN Crowder, Jeremy was instrumental in the launch of the original Vitamix blender, introducing it into both the commercial (e.g., Starbucks) and residential markets across North America.

It is Jeremy’s passion, enthusiasm and electric personality that inspire his team. Jeremy thrives in a team environment. His collaborative approach was learned, throughout his life, through competitive sailing and hockey. Sailors have an expression: “You are only as strong as your crew.” Jeremy has worked hard to develop and nurture a strong crew at KN Crowder. As a true Toronto Maple Leaf fan says, “Go, Leafs, go,” Jeremy says, “Go, KNC, go!”
