Company Profile Request update info.

Nicholas Knauf managed and eventually started his own grain and feed business in Sheboygan, WI. After the Milwaukee, Lakeshore and Western Railroad built a line to Brillion from Milwaukee, Knauf opened a branch elevator in Brillion. This business sent 500 carloads of wheat per year to the then thriving flour mill town of Milwaukee. Nicholas Knauf builds a grain elevator in Chilton, WI. He also moves his headquarters to this county seat. William N. Knauf (the 19 yr. old son of Nicholas), Frank Tesch and Milton Jones form a partnership. Under the subsequent ownership of Knauf & Tesch (K&T), the business supplies area farmers with clean, reliable seeds. They purchase the grain elevators from Nicholas Knauf in 1897. Knauf and Tesch became a Wisconsin based corporation.
