Kennon Products, Inc. is a multi-faceted company with a reputation built on quality and service.
Kennon was started in 1984 in a small rented garage in Temple City, California by Paul Kennon Chaney and Ron Kensey. Its flagship product, the Kennon Sun Shield, quickly became a best-seller and continues to be a favorite for pilots.
Paul eventually left the company and, in 1989, Ron and his family relocated to Sheridan, Wyoming. Since then, Kennon has taken the lead in helping aircraft owners to protect their investment. In doing so, the company is responsible for introducing many innovative products to the aviation world.
Kennon’s innovation does not reside exclusively in the world of private aviation, however. The company has manufactured protective covers for military and commercial aircraft, oil and gas wells, the LA Dodgers stadium and more. A strength of Kennon’s is the ability to form and manage multi-disciplinary research teams, and deliver useful products at the end. The company employs a partnering model, bringing talented people and their ideas together to create new products and opportunities.
Kennon prides itself on providing exceptional quality. Over the years, Kennon has received numerous awards, including the Blue Chip Enterprise Award, the State of Wyoming’s Exporter of the Year (1999), the House of Lean manufacturing achievement award and, most recently, the Better Business Bureau of Wyoming and Northern Colorado's Torch Award for Business Ethics. The company strives to continually improve its products and received ISO 9001:2008 certification in 2015.
In addition to providing top-notch quality, Kennon strives to give back to the community. One of its core values is care for co-workers, community, customers and country. Perhaps the best of example of this is through the company’s Capacity to Care program, in which qualified non-profit organizations, schools, etc. receive a dollar-for-dollar match on products and services. The Kennon team also donates its time to local programs, such as Adopt-a-Park and Meals on Wheels.
