Transhield is the maker of advanced technology protective covers.

"We anticipate good things to come from this partnership," said Jim Glick, president of Transhield. "A synergistic approach to this market segment is an all-around win. Kennon has outstanding design capabilities and existing patterns for many military assets. The collaboration will allow us to increase product selection and expedite delivery of superior, state-of-the-art protection for fielded assets."
Kennon's president Ronald Kensey stated, "Kennon takes pride in engineering and fabricating safe, form-fitting covers to protect high value assets. We are excited to team with Transhield! Aviation customers, including the Department of Defense, will be able to purchase Kennon covers made from the extensively tested and well-proven corrosion inhibiting materials from Transhield. Customers will benefit from our partnership with Transhield because now we can incorporate Transhield's active vapor corrosion inhibitors and provide it at a price that they can afford."
