Incorporated in 1929, Ward & Kennedy's primary focus was supplying footwear
machinery, components, and supplies to the many footwear manufacturing
companies in the Midwest. When footwear manufacturing began to move off
shore, the company began marketing many of its quality lines to general
industry with a focus on woodworkers, metal-workers, medical industries and the
cutting and sewing trades.
As a multifaceted company, we continue to grow in all areas, including
footwear. We continue to die cut shoe components and many other specialty
items. Our Quality lines such as 3M, Dynabrade, Devilbiss and many others
have all contributed to our continued success.
