Konrad Marine Invests in Manufacturing System

(Press Release)
Thursday, February 16, 2012
Konrad Marine has implemented its unique Total Gear Cutting System, a system which the manufacturer touts as a clear strategic advantage in the manufacture of its reliable sterndrive systems. 
The framework for the system is the Gleason Phoenix(R) II, 600HC - a modern bevel gear cutting machine. Highly specialized, integrated programming makes it one of only three in the world with its unique capabilities.
Augmenting this framework and its programming with Konrad's experience in design, tooling, machining, and proprietary manufacturing processes creates the Total Gear Cutting System.
"Our primary objective is to have the toughest stern drive on the market," said owner Ken Konrad. "To achieve this, we need the strongest, most powerful and capable stern drive gears in the marine industry. We started with a phenomenal new gear cutting machine. By adding our proprietary processes, specialized programs, design and tooling based on decades of successful experience, we've created the Total Gear Cutting System. Konrad gears are a very significant contributor to fulfilling our objective of manufacturing the toughest stern drives ever made - and I'm absolutely
convinced we do just that."
Konrad Marine designs and manufactures stern drive propulsion solutions for commercial, military, and recreational marine applications. The company is headquartered and has their manufacturing facilities in Hudson, Wisconsin, USA.
