Cathy Koch, President & CEO, 35 years industry experience, automotive, aerospace, food and chemical industriesWhen Cathy returned to her job after the birth of her daughter, she was told her position was no longer available. Rather than fight, she went to work for the company’s top competitor. She says it was the best thing that ever happened to her. It didn’t take long before Cathy started her own company, K-Tec Systems. Cathy has over 35 years of experience in this industry. With K-Tec Systems she has been a reliable source to the automotive, aerospace, food and chemical industries for over 27 years.

Cathy has gained her experience from her customers. Visiting them in their plant, watching them work, helping them with the technical challenges they face has led her to a better understanding of their processes. She also proved her ability to find creative solutions to help them manufacture their products.

Beyond her expertise and knowledge, her loyalty, dedication and resilience capacity made her the right leader to compete against larger competitors.

Cathy is fully committed to reinvigorating the importance of quality over price and accurate test measurements. To give this new energy and raise the expectations for her company, Cathy envisions a culture that is based on creativity and a healthy workspace to attract and retain a talented workforce.
