Friedrich Krause founded the Friedrich Krause Verlag in New York after his arrival in 1938. He also operated a large import business, becoming one of the largest importers and distributors of German-language books.

In 1933, Krause fled to Austria, where he became co-owner of the Europa-Verlag. He came to New York in 1938 as manager of the New York branch of the Oprecht Verlag.
