Roll-Kraft, Manufacturer of Tube, Pipe, and Roll Form Tooling, Names Vice President


Roll-Kraft is pleased to announce the appointment of Kevin Gehrisch to the position of Vice President. 

Roll-Kraft is an essential business, manufacturing custom tooling for the roll form and tube and pipe industry.  Gehrisch will oversee all of the Roll-Kraft-owned companies in his new role and will be active in charting the growth path of the company.

Gehrisch joined Roll-Kraft in 2010, and spent his early years as part of the maintenance department and then as a regrind engineer, where he learned the design process and how Roll-Kraft products are made.  

After graduating from Ohio University in 2012 with a degree in Finance, Gehrisch spent nearly 2 years traveling with Roll-Kraft’s technical teams, meeting customers and observing their applications. This led to a greater understanding of what is most important to customers and how critical the technical expertise is at Roll-Kraft.

Gehrisch then moved into the sales department, where he was instrumental in understanding the market and setting new goals and standards, which would help grow the business further.  By 2018, he became the Director of Operations, while still overseeing the sales operations.  Using his knowledge of the market and knowing the customers’ needs, Gehrisch, working with talented and motivated staff members at Roll-Kraft, developed efficiencies and standardizations to drive profitability, all with the goal of meeting customers’ critical deadlines and providing on-time delivery and first-time performance.

Today, Gehrisch is eager and excited to take what he has learned over the last 10 years and apply it to his new role to lead and charter the growth and profitability of the company going forward.
