Kinedyne Releases 50th-Anniversary Catalog
Kinedyne celebrates 50 years of cargo control excellence with commemorative catalog and video highlighting products that deliver better cargo securement, greater cargo capacity and faster cargo access.
BRANCHBURG, N.J., USA — Kinedyne LLC, a world-leading designer, manufacturer and distributor of cargo control technologies, including cargo securement, capacity and access solutions for the transportation industry, announced the release of its expansive new 50th-anniversary-themed 2018 catalog and video, which are both available on Kinedyne's website. The catalog features 83 new products, several new product categories and more than 800 total SKUs.
The catalog and video both recount Kinedyne's historical progress over its 50-year history and highlight the company's product innovation over its five decades of serving the cargo control needs of commercial and military customers. The company has also used the occasion of its 50th anniversary as a catalyst to formulate new mission, vision and values statements, to set the tone for its future focus.
Since its last product catalog was released, Kinedyne has expanded its leadership role as "The Cargo Control People!" transcending its traditional role as a preeminent supplier of cargo securement and cargo capacity products, to include innovative cargo access solutions as well. With the introduction of its revolutionary new Kin-Slider and Kin-Sider curtain-side cargo access system, load-rated curtain-side access system and new aerial access sliding roof system, Kinedyne is uniquely positioned to take advantage of market segment growth, particularly in the area of eCommerce and last-mile delivery.
"Over the last 50 years, Kinedyne has set the pace with innovative products that have helped the industries we serve become safer while making it possible to achieve higher levels of overall supply chain productivity," Dan Schlotterbeck, president of Kinedyne LLC, said. "The new products and themes represented in our 50th-anniversary catalog capture our sense of excitement as we transition from celebrating our remarkable history to creating a dynamic new future of cargo management technology."
Innovative new catalog additions include RHINO MAX brand of winch straps and ratchet straps that upgrade Kinedyne's award-winning abrasion-resistant Rhino Web line, giving RHINO MAX straps a higher working load limit. RHINO MAX load securement straps are treated with the same award-winning abrasion-resistant chemical coating that made Rhino Web a favorite of fleets and owner-operators looking for a strap capable of standing up to heavy-duty environments.
The K-FORCE brand of winch, ratchet and logistics straps is a completely new offering from Kinedyne. Like the RHINO MAX straps, the new K-FORCE straps are engineered to manage heavier loads with more polyester material in the body of the strap than Kinedyne's standard webbing.
Other newcomers to the catalog include:
The patented Ease-Z Winch Bar that rotates 360 degrees for leverage and to accommodate various clearance requirements
THE E-HOOK brand storage system that reduces freight damage, increases revenue and turns empty wall space into usable storage areas and is patented
VeeBoards, BrickGuards and the patented VeeBoards2Go Brand Corner Protectors that evenly distribute the mechanical force exerted by load securement straps and other tie-down assemblies, and help maintain the structural integrity of stacked cargo
Kinedyne has also added new upgrades, new features and expanded lines of traditional product favorites including, Kaptive Beam Double Decking Systems, Rubber-Coated Steel Corner Protectors, Retract-A-Bar hybrid jack bar and load lock, Trailer Door Safety Straps, Heavy-Duty Strap Bands, Heavy-Duty D-Rings, Lever Binder Locks, Grip Link Tire Chains and Reflective Conspicuity Flags.
"We've grown and refined our offerings in virtually all of our conventional product categories, including flatbed, interior van, webbing, hardware and tire chains," Schlotterbeck said. "Kinedyne's recent expansion into curtain-side cargo access technology is complementary to our reputation as 'The Cargo Control People!' and ushers in a new era of service to our industry."
The new catalog provides content in three languages, includes a comprehensive parts index, features color-coded section identification and is three-hole drilled for compatibility with standard catalog racks. Kinedyne's 50th-anniversary-themed 2018 Catalog is available now for viewing on Kinedyne's website and can be ordered through your Kinedyne representative or by calling Kinedyne's customer service department at 800.848.6057 in the U.S., 800.268.3530 in Canada and 011.5255.53184844 in Mexico.
