About our company


Roger A Knight  is the president and founder of RAKO Inc. Graduating from Eureka High School and continuing on being the FIRST Class to enter the Emporia KS NEW Flint Hills Area Vocational Technical School in 1969, graduating with a A- Average for the two year program in Welding And Machine Shop. I attribute this educational program to my life time – lifelong success. Automatic welding and mass produced parts did not interest me. I was challenged by the CRITICAL EXTREME Technical aspects of the welding field as well as machine shop. These principals are what drives and motivates Roger today. The Metal Working Machinery Repair Field truly offers the opportunity to utilize these skills. Before Roger attended the first grade 1958, he knew this PROFESSION was his natural God Given Gift. For extra money Roger started repairing Air Compressors and Metal Working Equipment in his high school years. He enjoys traveling in his first generation Dodge Diesel Pickup surpassing  550,000 miles as of 2017. The Truck is Maintained by RAKO Inc.
