K&N Engineering Repositions for Growth

Effective immediately, K&N will reduce prices across intake products within the K&N brand family.

K&N Engineering announced a series of changes that it says will make its products more accessible and affordable for customers. Effective immediately, K&N will reduce prices across intake products within the K&N brand family, including AEM, Airaid, and Spectre.

This decision comes after two years of challenges due to the labor, material costs, and supply chain disruptions that have driven up pricing for the industry as a whole, the company says.

K&N adds it has been able to reduce some operational costs through increased efficiencies in manufacturing, including improved performance from its new plant in Grand Prairie, Texas, and greater efficiencies in the supply chain.

Concurrently, K&N announced the new development of over 50 intakes with both Dryflow synthetic and oiled cotton options on new and top-selling applications in the coming months. These new offerings give consumers more choice when selecting the right intake system for their vehicle, the company says. In addition K&N adds it is bringing back discontinued SKUs to offer additional options for less-popular vehicles.

“We are excited to announce these new products and pricing, and look forward to taking full advantage of our new world class U.S. operations,” said K&N CEO, Randy Bays. “These new initiatives are part of the larger plan to better serve our customers, dealers, and distributors.”
