Kennon Products was started in 1984 in a small rented garage in Temple City, California by Paul Kennon Chaney and Ron Kensey. Their flagship product was the Kennon Sun Shield. It wasn’t long before it became a best seller. It still is. Pilots like how wedges fit inside the window molding and stay without fasteners or suction cups.
Paul left the company to focus more on his construction business and in 1989 the Kensey’s moved Kennon to Sheridan, Wyoming. It was a quality of life move. Sheridan is located at the foot of the Big Horn Mountains and is a great place to raise a family and a business.
Kennon has taken the lead in helping aircraft owners protect their investment, and responsible for introducing many innovative products to the aviation world.
They are proud to have received the Blue Chip Enterprise Award presented by Connecticut Mutual, US Chamber of Commerce, and Nation’s Business magazine and was featured in Entrepreneur magazine as one of 51 American Success Stories.
In 1999, Kennon was named the State of Wyoming’s Exporter of the Year.
Owner Ron Kensey was presented the Sam Walton Business Leader Award in recognition of service to customers, respect of the individual, and commitment to strive for excellence.
Kennon has a continuing commitment to improving its products and services to meet the needs of its customers. Most of the seeds for Kennon’s innovative products come from customers.
“We have the best customers in the world,” says Ron, “They own nice stuff and want to do the very best to protect it.”
