Our work approach:

At Kraftmar we strongly believe in working closely with the customer from the beginning of a project to its completion. We stay closely involved with vessel managers and crews when needed, and spend considerable time working hands on with them, whether they are local to Seattle or located abroad. The Kraftmar staff has reached as far as Indonesia and the Middle East to provide support on projects for U.S. companies.

After our design work is completed, we stay fully available to assist the fabricators and construction companies in carrying out the physical work and fabrication needed to successfully complete a project. It is always a team effort from our point of view.
