Background of Founder: Larry E. Koenig
Mr. Koenig began his career in the electronics field designing and building timers and relays. He soon branched into sales which led him to a position as sales manager for a Dallas baler company in 1969. In 1971 Mr. Koenig left Dallas to start his own waste equipment distribution business in Iowa, known as RS&E (Recycling Systems & Equipment). In addition to founding Komar in 1977, Mr. Koenig expanded his reach into the waste industry founding a recycling and transfer center in 1980 and purchasing a waste hauling company in 1982. In 1984 Mr. Koenig divested his interests in these companies and moved to Central Ohio to better position Komar to take advantage of the Eastern & Midwestern industrial corridor opportunities. Mr. Koenig’s innovation has led Komar and produced over 130 US and foreign patents during his tenure as President of Komar Industries, Inc. In 2007 Mr. Koenig became CEO and semi-retired, turning over day to day operations to his son Mark. Larry continues his enthusiasm for new challenges and lends his experience to the Komar product development and marketing departments in between travels.
