F&K Concepts, Inc. (FKCI) works primarily with businesses and organizations on a wide variety of products and services and has partnered with customers on numerous creative, custom products. Popular products and services include name badges, luggage tags, engraved plaques and awards, signage, commercial and industrial nameplates, general engraving and branded promotional products.
FKCI founder, Fred Booher, started the business in 1970, while working as a full-time engineer. In 1982, Fred committed himself to engraving full time. The business grew primarily by word of mouth and God’s blessing. Kay worked in the shop and their daughter, Shawnie, worked in the office. Their son, Don, has managed operations and production since 1984 -- overseeing product quality and ensuring every job gets out in a timely manner. As the company grew, additional staff were added, including Fred and Kay’s grandchildren.
In 2017, family friend, Greg Frye, joined the business to lead business development and run the front office. Greg brought over 30 years of customer service driven, small business experience, in areas of Information Technology, operational efficiencies and financial management.
After 48 years of service to FKCI and our customers, Fred officially began a well-deserved retirement in 2018. He continues to occasionally consult with us on new opportunities and we appreciate his wisdom and vast experience. We were also blessed to introduce some additional equipment in our shop in 2018 that expanded our capacity and brought efficiencies into our production processes.
