There’s a New King at Krowne

Stainless steel-product maker Krowne has announced that Kyle Forman will be succeeding his father, Roger Forman, as company president. The elder Forman served as president for more than 36 years.

After assuming the role from his uncle, Peter Miller, Roger grew the corporation from a regional, eight-person fabrication shop to an industry-leading manufacturer with over 100 employees and a large international presence leading the brand through major changes and company expansion, growing the factory from 30,000 to 200,000 square feet, the company said in a statement.

“When I took over for my uncle in 1984, I had big aspirations for the company,” said Roger. “We’ve experienced tremendous growth over the past several decades and I couldn’t have achieved any of it without my wonderful team at Krowne. I am thrilled to pass the company legacy on to my son who has led the charge on innovation while driving substantial growth since joining the company.”

Son Kyle has worked in a variety of innovations at Krowne over the past 10 years, the company says. Those include a variety of 3D and augmented reality bar design products, as well as including bartenders into the design process.

“We’ve made significant investments in robotic machinery over the past few years, transforming into an industry leader through cutting-edge technology and a steadfast focus on exceeding customer needs,” said Kyle. “We’ve become known for our flexible custom solutions which have helped Krowne win contracts on larger projects for stadiums, casinos, hotels and other major entertainment venues. It is an honor to step into this leadership role for our family’s business and I look forward to working with our amazing team at Krowne to continuously create ways to differentiate our brand and carry our momentum forward.”

Krowne’s makes custom underbar and refrigeration, hand sinks, faucets, gas hoses and more. The company has designed bars at major sports venues, hospitality venues, and launched an exclusive partnership to develop the “Bar of the Future” with Jon Taffer for his ground-breaking franchise concept Taffer’s Tavern.
