Sacramento Rendering President Michael Koewler attributes his company’s longevity to one main factor. “Our management group is committed to a company philosophy that puts customers first,” he says. “We believe that if we provide good service to a customer, then they will grow and we will grow along with them.”
The Sacramento, Calif.-based company, which also operates a plant in Turlock, Calif., is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. While Sacramento Rendering’s basic function hasn’t significantly changed since Koewler’s family co-founded it in 1913, its techniques and reach have evolved greatly. The company has grown from strictly being a local business to one serving both northern California and northern Nevada.
