KENT celebrates sixty years in business!
Earning a reputation as the trusted brand for the commercial and marine business, KENT is now the market leader in safety products. Leveraging our sixty years of combined experience, we continue to innovate in order to offer quality, technologically-advanced products, while maintaining our tradition of bringing new, improved products to you, our customer.
Our success dates back to when KENT Sporting Goods Company was founded as a subsidiary of Eagle Rubber Company, Inc. Prior to the KENT Company purchase, Eagle Rubber Company had dedicated their entire facility to manufacturing products for the Army and Navy during World War II. These products included a self-inflating life belt, orally inflatable life belt, and inflatable life rafts, all designed to save and protect the lives of servicemen fighting the War.
Six decades later, the KENT brand is still using this same knowledge and expertise in developing and manufacturing inflatable life jackets and we take pride as being the world's largest inflatable life jacket manufacturer in the market today.
We have diversified our business to remain relevant in the many markets we serve, and will continue to be your long term partner and a trusted leader in providing consistent product quality and innovation.
