Default Changes

For those who are involved in the powerboat industry and recreational sport, I would like to acknowledge recent changes in my company.

I am no longer affiliated with the corporation, Keith Eickert Power Products or Julie Sullivan, or her company KE Power.

Though it is difficult to not be aligned with a company that bears my name, it is the current state of affairs. I will be in touch soon with news of my future plans and I appreciate your understanding and continued interest in my products.

kEITH, so sorry to hear that. I know that your only challenge will be to get the word out so people do'nt think that they are buying KB when it's not . I'll tell everone that I already know is a KB customer so that there is no confusion. I hav dozens of KB parts on my new motors, like dry sump/fuel/3stage water pumps, How do we get those and repalcement parts???? Otto

Glad to hear news of the happenings over there. Hopefully, whatever future endevours you enter are successful and bear notoriety like your old company. I mean, Everyone knew what Keith Eickert stood for and meant.

Must be tough to give up a company with your own name on it. Can't she at least change the name???

Good luck!

That's a shame...I hope everything works out for you...your reputation and products preceed you so, i doubt it will be long before the KE name is back.

I can recall a similar incident with Mark Levinson Audio. I've met him and although I really dislike the man, his name was also taken from him when he took on partners and is now being used in Lexus automobiles...

Best of luck to you.

Keith, I wish you the best in whatever happens. I still have not heard a single bad thing about any of your products.
