Tire-changing and shop tools manufacturer Ken-Tool Corp. has promoted Steve Vyn to director of sales and marketing.

A member of the Ken-Tool sales and marketing team for three years, Vyn has held the positions of product line specialist and most recently, interim sales manager.

“I am focused on continuing the improvements to Ken-Tool’s sales, concentrating first on customer service and satisfaction,” says Vyn.

He says he plans to build on a foundation of innovative new product expansion established by Rock Tyson, former vice president of sales and marketing at Ken-Tool.

“Our Ken-Tool sales and marketing team, which includes Eunice Boyes, sales and marketing coordinator and Leonard Broyles as customer service representative, has been developing a new ‘Take a second look’ initiative to the tire service industry. It is to remind them of the innovative products Ken-Tool has brought to market to make their workplace more productive and safer.and that there is far more to Ken-Tool than just tire irons and 4-way lug wrenches!”

Vyn says the company’s newly released Shark Fin Dual Wheel Separator Bag as an example of a product designed to protect the technician’s well-being, while improving workplace productivity. 

Ken-Tool says it is the world’s leading manufacturer of professional tire service hand tools. Headquartered in Akron, Ohio, Ken-Tool has been providing the tire industry and automotive aftermarket with quality products for over 95 years.
