OUR STORY

A tradition of growth through product excellence since 1988

Our founders were a group of forward-thinking, high-volume precision machinists who created strategic partnerships that fueled progressive organic growth. A change in ownership in the spring of 2005 saw the infusion of modern manufacturing practices into the existing technical team. This combination of technical expertise and contemporary manufacturing methodologies gives Kenona Industries a leading edge in this demanding international market.

As we continue to evolve and grow, we expect to achieve positive results for our customers based on the principles that have made us successful.
