To better serve its global military and government customers, cargo control solutions manufacturer Kinedyne LLC introduces Kinedyne Defend, a new brand for the National Stock Number (NSN), National Aerospace Standards (NAS) and Military Specifications (MIL-SPEC) products within its Military, Government and Specialty Solutions division.
“As U.S. military demand for our cargo securement equipment and specialty hardware has grown, we have increased production capacity in our state-of-the art manufacturing facility in Prattville, Alabama,” said Jim White, who has joined Kinedyne as government business development manager, with responsibility for the overall Military, Government and Specialty Solutions Market Segment. “We created the new Kinedyne Defend brand to clearly communicate the product offerings and solutions available to better support our military customers and create growth opportunities for the overall market segment.”
Kinedyne Defend includes nearly 350 active NSN products including cargo nets, general strap assemblies and specialized cargo securement straps for aviation, aerospace, maritime, rail and other highly customized military applications. All Kinedyne Defend products are military-grade, NAS-compliant and meet MIL-SPEC standards for proper performance, maintainability, and logistical usefulness. In addition to standard products, Kinedyne Defend offers engineered solutions to create innovative products to solve new cargo securement challenges for the armed forces.
White brings both military and private sector experience to his new role. He joined Kinedyne from Utility Trailer Manufacturing, where he was national sales manager for more than 18 years. Prior to that, he worked for Meritor after his honorable discharge from the U.S. Army where he had served as a specialist for eight years.
“Having partnered with Jim in his previous job, we know his expertise in driving revenue growth, building customer relationships and leading other sales professionals will benefit this market segment of our overall business and further expand our market leading position,” says Dan Schlotterbeck, Kinedyne president. “Additionally, his experience in the military gives him unique insights into the needs of this important customer base.”
