Kenda’s commitment to providing quality rubber products extends to the production of EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) membranes. EPDM’s ability to withstand the stress of thermal expansion and contraction allows this versatile and durable material to be widely used in the construction industry. Other Stafast products include TPO and PVC membranes as well as installation accessories (fasteners, adhesives, sealants, caulks, tape products, and flashing materials). Membranes are offered in large sheet sizes that make for efficient and cost effective installation by qualified roofing contractors. With formula modifications, this membrane becomes “fish-friendly” and is an excellent choice as lining material for both residential and commercial decorative ponds.

RoofKit is a high quality product available to the residential “Do-it-yourself” customers. Products are available through lumberyards, home centers, and retail hardware stores under the RoofKit brand. These products are perfect for weekend projects that include flat-roof garages, room additions, breezeways, sunrooms, storage sheds, and carports. Scaled-down attractive packaging, point-of-purchase sales aids, easy to read installation guides, a technical assistance hotline and “how-to” videos make this offering a sure bet for any retailer serving the D-I-Y or small contractor market.

Nothing is more relaxing than listening to the sound of running water coursing down a mountain stream. You can bring that part of nature to your own backyard by creating a beautiful decorative water garden complete with a waterfall! Because many soils are not able to retain water, a liner is needed to complete a pond project. StaFast developed a true fish-friendly EPDM rubber pond lining membrane under the brand name Pond King. This flexible and affordable liner allows for simplified installation and has a 20 yr warranty! Our Pond King liner is available through local garden centers and pond specialty stores nationwide.

Bob Haro founded a company more than 30 years ago based on his life’s passion: BMX bicycles. As the sport of BMX continued to progress, the Haro product line was expanded and Bob Haro made his mark as the “Father of BMX Freestyle”. Since 1979, Haro Bicycles has continued to produce products driven by a relentless pursuit of passion for the sport of cycling. Haro’s product line has been shaped by some of the world’s most decorated cyclists to meet not only the demands of the highest level of competition, but quality seeking consumers worldwide. The Haro brand has achieved premium bicycle status and is available only though professional bicycle dealers. The Haro Bicycle Corporation consists of four distinct product categories: BMX and Adult (MTB/cruiser) bikes both branded under the Haro name as well as Masi Bicycles, and Premium Products. Each brand category has its own unique identity and appeals to different market segments. This situation allows Haro to remain diverse in our product offering and not become overly dependent on one segment of business. Haro Bicycles has its corporate headquarters and west coast distribution facility located in Vista, California and an east coast distribution center located in Columbus, Ohio. Haro products are distributed worldwide through a network of over 34 international distributors and 1600 independent bicycle dealers in the United States.

Haro BMX Haro BMX bicycles are typically single-geared bikes with wheels 20” in diameter. BMX bikes are designed to be ridden on man-made terrain such as skateparks, dirt jumps, urban obstacles, and BMX race tracks. Haro Bicycles proudly boasts a significant market share in the BMX category, making us a top BMX bike in the industry. Haro has long been associated with the biggest names in BMX. Athletes have helped shape the sport in its infancy and modern-day athletes have taken the sport to new levels. With highly publicized events such as the X-Games, Gravity Games, and the Dew Tour, action sports athletes have become household names with each athlete’s equipment sponsors reaping the benefits of the exposure these events earn.

Haro Mountain Bikes Much like the BMX category, Haro’s mountain bike category is shaped by riders who are incredibly passionate about bicycles. World and National Championship titles have been won on Haro mountain bikes. While the majority of our consumers may never aspire to race, our professional athletes have been invaluable in the research and development process of new frame designs. Their feedback helps us provide weekend warriors, amateur racers, and everyone in between with bikes of the highest quality. The Haro name is synonymous with aggressive, edgy, hardcore riding that tends to involve jumps, tricks, and high speeds. Our mountain bikes are positioned to appeal to that type of consumer. No other mountain bike manufacturer boasts this type of BMX-oriented history, putting Haro in a unique position to appeal to older riders who had a Haro BMX bike as a kid and are now shopping for a mountain bike.

12


In 2001, Haro Bicycles entered into an exclusive licensing and production agreement which served to reintroduce the Masi brand after a period of dormancy. Masi is one of the oldest and most respected brands of road bikes in the world. Once a professional bike racer himself, Faliero Masi began making bikes bearing his name shortly after World War I. Faliero soon became known as “The Tailor� to some of the biggest names in the history of cycling who sought him out for his quality and his ability to make quality road frames that fit and performed like no other. Although Faliero Masi passed away in 2000, we continue to build bicycles to his exacting standards. The brand is positioned as a high-end, low volume product that supports the brand’s existing and longstanding position as a premium road bike.

Launched in 2003, Premium Products was developed as an individually marketed brand, designed to appeal to a larger core market. Built on a foundation of performance oriented BMX/ Freestyle components and frames, Premium Products has rapidly grown into a well respected niche brand among passionate riders.

Monitor Manufacturing Company began in 1964 as a contract metal stamping company producing metal parts for the airline industry. In 1974, Monitor made and sold their own line of conversion van seat bases as well as various lawn mower components for Snapper Lawn Mowers. The movement into lawn mower components was the start of Monitor’s entry into the steel wheel business. In the following decade, Monitor started producing six and eight inch wheels mainly for the lawn and garden industry where a relationship with Kenda Rubber developed. As Kenda became a major tire supplier for the tire and wheel assembly business, Monitor’s relationship with Kenda continued to develop. In 1998, Monitor Manufacturing became the newest member of the Kenda Group. Today, Monitor has grown into one of the major suppliers in the golf car, lawn and garden, and trailer markets.

The Monitor team is exceptionally skilled and very experienced, including an engineering department with a variety of equipment to assure that the highest quality standards are achieved. Not only is the equipment at Monitor first class, the company emphasizes and values their employees. There are press operators with almost 20 years of wheel stamping experience and welders with over 28 years of wheel/hub welding experience.

In addition to demanding the highest quality raw materials and quality craftsmanship on all products the company purchases from outside vendors, Monitor continues to demand the lowest possible costs from those suppliers. From creating more efficient processes to motivating the staff, Monitor continuously looks for ways to increase production and lower costs. At Monitor, the company regards customers as partners and if the company can realize cost savings from our suppliers or through gains in efficiency, they can pass these savings on to customers.

Martin Wheel Company was founded in 1946 as a distributor of small wheels. In the early years, the company developed a multi-notched tire that would fit several brands of reel-type lawnmowers. This development changed the direction of the company moving it into the lawn and garden aftermarket business. Growth continued by increasing internal manufacturing and an expansion of the product line with the acquisition of the industrial pneumatic division of Allied Wheel and Sure Cut, Inc. These acquisitions enabled Martin Wheel to become a major factor in the industrial market with sales throughout the United States and Canada. In 1999, the Martin Wheel Company was acquired by the Kenda Group. Under the new direction, the company has continued to expand. In 2003, a significant building expansion was completed giving Martin Wheel over 140,000 sq ft of manufacturing space.
