Gar Kenyon’s origins trace back to 1950 when Kenyon Instrument merged with Gar Precision Valve Division. Gar Kenyon has become known as a designer and manufacturer of aerospace and defense components with high quality engineered products.
Our AS9100B/ISO 9001:2008 aerospace quality system ensures that our products meet the needs of the world’s finest aircraft manufacturers. Military programs initially dominated Gar-Kenyon’s revenues, including the A-6, A-10, F-4, F-14, F-15, F-16, F-18, C-130, C-5 and P-3 aircraft. During the 1980’s Gar-Kenyon became more closely affiliated with General Aviation aircraft manufacturers. In the 1990’s Gar-Kenyon partnered in the development of components used in various Regional Jet aircraft.
On March 31, 2003 SAF Industries LLC acquired Gar-Kenyon and relocated to a modern, fully air conditioned, 44,000 square foot facility in Naugatuck, CT.
