Kedco Wine Storage Systems is a family owned business started in a garage in 1970. Lou and Helene Windt saw an opening for a more efficient way of displaying merchandise for retailers. Spacemaker displays were widely distributed, which led to additional products such as the KM series of racking, and the black steel lineup of commercial wine racks. Through word of mouth, residential users began using them in home applications which led to further line extensions. Standard and custom refrigeration was developed to accommodate long term storage requirements.
