About Us

Innkeeper LLC

Innkeeper LLC is a manufacturer of custom engineered test equipment. Our main focus is combining machine control with data acquisition for fatigue, strength and durability testing. Our systems are controlled around Continuous closed loop (PIDF), Discrete closed loop and Open loop theory.

By and large the first and most common question we get when meeting a new customer has nothing to do with technology, control theory, or data acquisition. It is this: “Why in the world are you named Innkeeper?” In 2006, Kevin Kretshmann founded Innkeeper. “Innkeeper” is simply the English translation of “Kretschmann” from an old Eastern German dialect, which is where his father was born.

Aside from our name, everything we do revolves around testing and our customers. New machine design, control retrofit upgrades for existing machines, standardized bedplate/ table top test control systems to name a few. Our business has survived and thrived through two major economic downturns because of our focus on the customer. We listen before we speak, we do what we say, we answer the phone, and most importantly we support each and every customer as best we know how. Forever.

Our areas of expertise include:

  • Machine Controls Retrofits
  • Servo-Hydraulic Test Equipment
  • Electro-Mechanical Test Equipment
  • Pneumatic Test Equipment
  • Custom Test Equipment Solutions
