About Us

K. R. Anderson, Inc. was established in 1968 as a sales and distribution organization supporting high tech markets in the Silicon Valley. In 1987, K.R. Anderson, Inc. added custom fabrication of materials to its offerings. Form in Place gasketing was a significant addition to the capabilities in 1997. KR Anderson, Inc. and Rocky Mountain based sister company, Krayden, merged into one company in 2013 under the Krayden name. Product lines in common to both companies were now supported by one company, Krayden. K.R. Anderson was spun off as an independent distribution and conversion company for its exclusive lines using the trade name KraFAB.
