|Rooted in the Longmont Community|
|Cratek Supply started as Longmont Shippers Supply in 1984 as part of a co-op with Loveland Shippers Supply and Fort Collins Shippers Supply. The co-op ended up not working and Wayne Godfrey and his son Clark purchased the Longmont Shippers Supply division in 1987.|
|In November of 2004, after the passing of his father and business partner, Clark Godfrey sold Longmont Shippers Supply to Crating Technologies. Clark remained on board as one of Cratek Supply’s leaders, and is still holding the fort to this day.
Acquiring Longmont Shippers Supply was a natural expansion of Crating Technologies’ business.
|Both companies had many customers in common. Purchasing Longmont Shippers Supply allowed Crating Technologies to gain the purchasing power of a distributor. In October of 2009, Longmont Shippers Supply changed its name to Cratek Supply Co. to be more aligned with the extended area that the company is currently serving.|
