WOLFGANG HUGO KASSNER (W.H. KASSNER) FLED GERMANY IN WORLD WAR II.  A FEW YEARS AFTER HIS ARRIVAL TO NEW YORK CITY, HE ATTENDED PRESTIGIOUS COOPER UNION COLLEGE, GRADUATING WITH A DEGREE IN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN IN 1939.  WOLF FOUNDED THE COMPANY IN 1961, AND BEGAN RUNNING FULL OPERATIONS WITH HIS SON, ERIC IN THE EARLY 1970s AS A SALES REPRESENTATIVE FOR ARCHITECTURAL COMPONENT COMPANIES.  AS THEY STARTED COMPLETING INSTALLATIONS, THE DUO REALIZED THEY WERE CONSTANTLY MAKING MODIFICATIONS.  BY THE LATE 1970s THEY EXPANDED TO THE SHOP FACILITY, HIRED TOM PETRO AND BEGAN TAKING ON PUBLIC WORKS PROJECTS.  THE REST IS PROVERBIAL HISTORY, AS ERIC AND TOM HAVE COMPLETED HUNDREDS OF PROJECTS IN THE NEW YORK TRI-STATE AREA

NOW IT'S THE JOB OF SIBLINGS ELLIE AND DIRK KASSNER TO CARRY ON THE COMPANY. GROWING UP, THEY WERE TAUGHT: 
"YOU LOOK SOMEONE IN THE EYE. YOU SHAKE THEIR HAND. AND YOU DO WHAT YOU SAY YOU'RE GOING TO DO."

W.H. KASSNER, INC. STILL OPERATES BY THAT MANTRA AS A SUB, AND RESPONSIBLE CONTRACTOR.
THE PROOF IS ABUNDANT, AS WHK SERVICES MULTIPLE CLIENTS THAT HAVE WORKED WITH ALL THREE GENERATIONS OF KASSNERS.
