KTI is a Grande Prairie, Alberta, manufacturing and technology company with experience in operating, manufacturing and maintaining forest harvesting equipment.
Les and Neil Kerik have been involved in the development of logging equipment since 1987 when they started Kerik Brothers Enterprises Ltd. (KBE). The Kerik brothers have also been very involved in equipment demos, operator training, machine application training and market development with a number of companies in North and South America and parts of Europe.
After being introduced to the Tree King prototype in 1996, Neil and Les realized the potential of this unique processor head and pursued the opportunity to work with the original inventor to prepare the Tree King for introduction into the North American market. As a result, Kerik Technologies Inc. was formed in 2003 by Les and Neil Kerik.
