Biography of Theodor Kundtz
Cuyahoga County, OH Biographies





THEODOR KUNDTZ figures as the founder and upbuilder of one of the great industrial enterprises of Cleveland, that of the Theodor Kundtz Company, of which he is the president and which controls an immense business in the manufacturing of sewing machine woodwork, school desks, church furniture and automobile bodies. Five modern manufacturing plants are operated by this progressive corporation.

Mr. Kundtz was born at Metzenzef, Hungary, July 1, 1852, and in his native land he received good educational advantages, besides learning, in his father's shop, the trade of cabinetmaker. In 1873 he came to the United States and found employment at his trade in Cleveland. Two years later he assumed control of the little shop that figures as the nucleus of the great manufacturing industry of which he is now the executive head and which represents the results of his ability and well directed efforts. He continued the business in an individual way until 1915, when the Theodor Kundtz Company was incorporated, and he has since been president of this corporation. Mr. Kundtz is a member of the Cleveland Chamber of Commerce, and is valued as a sterling citizen of distinctive public spirit and much civic liberality. He is a republican, a member of the Tippecanoe Club, and a communicant of St. Rose Church. His wife, whose maiden name was Mary Balasch, was born and reared in Cleveland, and here their children were born.
