The MKC Story

Established in 1898, Madison-Kipp Corporation (‘MKC”) is a producer of lightweight, high-pressure aluminum die castings, precision machined components, and system subassemblies for customers in the transportation, industrial, lawn and garden, and recreational product markets.

MKC’s lean production systems are highly automated with robotic technology and integrated operations. We manage the supply chain from raw metal blending to final product assembly, providing our customers with a single source, integrated solution, that minimizes supply chain complexity and risk.

We embrace Lean/Six Sigma which we have internally branded as “SmartWay,” as our company-wide continuous improvement process.

Our experienced management team continues to effectively adapt to changing industry dynamics with a constant eye toward bringing additional value to our customers. We operate in three facilities–all located in the Madison, WI area. We continue to invest in new technology, equipment and people to improve our operations to serve our customers.
