It’s an exciting year at TKO with new products being developed and lots of shows and events scheduled for 2018.
One of our goals for the year is to develop a network of Distributors and Vendors. So far we are excited with the number of people we have met at events and have contacting us with interest in working with us.
Here is a list of the events that we have already attended or are planning on attending this year. If you plan on getting to any of these shows come on over to our TKO booth and say hi.
March 9-11 2018 we started the year off at the Boise Roadster Show in Boise Idaho where we made lots of new friends and contacts. We met the builder/winner of the prestigious Detroit Autorama Ridler Award for 2017 and he showed an interest in our clamps. We are discussing and are excited with the possibility of featuring our TKO products on their Ridler build for this year.
March 16-17 2018 found us at Chrome In The Dome in Pocatello, Idaho. This was our second anniversary as a company and being in our home town made this a special event for us. We found many cars at the event already featuring our clamps and many more decided to install our clamps on their cars.
April 21-22 2018 we were in Southern Oregon for the 2018 Medford Rod & Custom Show in Central Point Oregon. This was a good show for us and we made lots of contacts with people interested in working with us including moving into the race car world.
On Sunday we were excited when Gene Winfield came by our booth. Gene is an American automotive customizer. In the mid-1060s, his designs caught the attention of the film community, resulting in a large body of his work being seen on the screen. Gene came back to the booth a couple of hours later with his camera and asked Stan if we would be interested in featuring our TKO clamps on a car he is building for the Detroit Autorama Ridler Award. That is very exciting news for us that two famous car builders think enough of our product that they may use us for their builds at an event this prestigious.
