Kohler’s company founder, John Michael Kohler, was an Austrian immigrant, a businessman and a visionary. In 1873 he purchased a foundry in rural Wisconsin that produced a variety of cast-iron and steel products.
Ten years later, Kohler took a product in his line, heated it to 1700°F and sprinkled it with enamel powder. Placing a picture of it in the center of his one-page catalog, he called it “a horse trough/hog scalder . . . when furnished with four legs will serve as a bathtub.” Kohler was in the plumbing business.
From those humble beginnings, the company has grown into a multifaceted global family of brands that lead the way to enhance their customers’ sense of gracious living.
In addition to career paths and opportunities worldwide, Kohler offers a corporate university, Kohler Learning Academy, that provides associates with innovative, leading edge learning solutions to foster tangible career development and growth.
Kohler is not a place to work. It is a place to dare, dream and do, together.
To join forces with like-minded people, all cut from the same cloth.
This is more than just a place to earn a paycheck.
This is the rare opportunity to make a mark and make your work matter.
