Default Kraeuter Tools?

I found a few Kraeuter extensions and a couple sockets when digging through my dads old box, they say made in the U.S.A but I cannot find anything about them online. Can anyone enlighten me on the company history.

kraeuter was SK's other line of tools in the late 60's early 70's. They even came in a green metal box with a blue tag.
