At the heart of what matters

Main Profile

Kolcraft Enterprises, Inc.

Kolcraft started in Chicago in 1946 when Leo Koltun made playpen pads out of cotton batting and oilcloth covers for post World War II babies. In 1949, he found himself with surplus padding and used his ingenuity to invent the all-around crib and playard bumper pad.

A period of rapid growth followed as the company expanded into manufacturing other types of pads including Crib Mattresses in 1951. Since that time, Kolcraft has become America’s #1 Crib Mattress manufacturer. In 1979, Kolcraft began making plastic products with the introduction of the innovative Carri-Cradle; the first combination plastic infant carrier and rocker with a carrying handle. Kolcraft continued its expansion into the manufacture and distribution of other product categories including: Playards, High Chairs, Walkers, and Strollers. By 1994, Kolcraft became one of the nations leading suppliers of strollers.

In the late 1990’s, Kolcraft continued to grow by entering into additional new categories with quality, innovative children’s products. These new areas included Bassinets, Bouncers, Swings, and Juvenile Furniture.

Kolcraft continues to be the #1 Crib Mattress manufacturer. In addition to the Kolcraft Brand, we have now also partnered with recognizable brand names such as Sealy®, Sesame Beginnings™, Jeep®, and Nascar®, leaders in their industries, to produce a variety of children’s products.

As we proceed in the 21st century, Kolcraft continues its commitment to Quality products and service. Our continuity of family ownership sets us apart - it allows us to have an entrepreneurial approach and to be able to develop and manufacture “must have” baby products that make parents and caregivers lives easier.
