Since the very beginning, the USA has been home to the innovation, dedication and determination that has become Kolcraft. As more and more businesses outsource to other countries, taking jobs and economic support with them, we are proud to be able to continue manufacturing our crib mattresses and supplying many people with jobs here in the United States.
Leo Koltun learned how to sew his own crib mattresses in the 1950’s, after expanding his small business of making playard pads out of cotton batting and oilcloth covers. Soon enough Leo’s son, Sanfred Koltun, started helping his father with the business. He helped grow Kolcraft to become the number one crib mattress manufacturer in the USA, which still holds true today.
By the 1990’s, Kolcraft had expanded to more than just mattresses and Sanfred’s son, Tom, joined the Kolcraft team. Tom continues to use the same entrepreneurial spirit that his father, grandfather, and many other American innovators had.
For this Independence Day, and every day, we are proud to be an American company!
