About Kanamak Hydraulics

A little about us…

Kanamak Consulting/Kanamak Hydraulics began doing business in March 1983. Prior to its inception, its owner, Ken Madgwick, P.E., worked as a lead engineer at Beech Aircraft from 1977 through 1979. From there he moved to Garden City, Kansas and worked as the chief engineer at Bocats until he started his own business.

“Starting a business is a little like turning over a number of stones and hoping you’ll find something under one of them.”

Kanamak Hydraulics, Inc. was started as an engineering consulting firm but Ken knew there was also a need in the area for hydraulic service work and so he decided to begin servicing hydraulic systems until the consulting business was better established.

More than 30 years later, Kanamak Hydraulics still does some engineering consulting but the hydraulics service business is by far the majority of our focus.

About Us

The manufacturing side of the business got off to a slow start in 1985, but currently is our fastest growing segment. Machine Shop capabilities were added in 1987. In 2006, several CNC Machine tools were purchased and most recently the Fabrication Shop was greatly expanded in January 2014 including several new pieces of equipment. Today Kanamak Hydraulics, Inc. is respected as a leading manufacturer of oil-field equipment, a service center for hydraulic repair, and a distribution center of all kinds of hydraulic components.
