Kahlenberg Acquires Airchime Marine and Industrial Product Lines

Wednesday, January 17, 2007
Kahlenberg Brothers Company of Two Rivers, Wisconsin, purchased the Marine and Industrial divisions of Airchime Manufacturing Co., Ltd. of Langley, B.C., Canada. Since 1929, Airchime air horns, electric horns, and accessories have been well known for their high quality and durability in commercial marine, industrial, and locomotive applications. All Airchime Marine and Industrial products will now be manufactured in Kahlenberg’s existing facility in Two Rivers, Wisconsin. While some of the Airchime products have competed directly with Kahlenberg products in the commercial marine and industrial sectors, many of the Airchime designs are complementary to Kahlenberg’s existing product line, and greatly expand the range of products that can now be offered by Kahlenberg Brothers Company.

An ISO 9001-2000 Certified business, Kahlenberg Brothers Company is a family owned manufacturing corporation established in 1895. Kahlenberg manufactures the most durable air horns, electric horns, compressed air systems, and associated controls, as well as custom stainless steel propellers and propulsion related components for the marine industry.
