Küat Racks

More room for activities

August 18, 2015 | Company

Remember when you were a kid and it was fun to rearrange your bedroom? You’d change the position of your bed, move the book case around, and re-position that band poster on the wall. Your whole room felt new again and miraculously there seemed to be more space than there was before the project started. Unfortunately, that trick didn’t work for us at Küat. No matter how many times we moved our desks around, changed the layout of the lobby or rearranged the parts area, it still felt like the same old place with no extra space. We decided to move.

Don’t get me wrong, we all really liked the old place. The building stood on old Route 66 and the office windows looked out over a little café, who consistently received really bad health reviews. Daily entertainment usually came from a number of incidents involving the police and/or a wide range of colorful individuals that seemed to frequent the sidewalks out front. The office space was pretty tight to say the least, and the warehouse wasn’t much better. It was hot in the summer, cold in the winter, and wet when it rained but we made it work, and we all grew closer because of it.

On July 2, 2015, the employees at Küat Racks said goodbye to our little building in downtown Springfield Missouri and moved into our new, bigger and better, building on the west side of town. We still miss the old place every once in a while and the “daily entertainment” at the new place is a little light, but we really like it here. I don’t think we’ll feel the need to rearrange our bedroom any time soon.
