A Letter From The President:
Our goal since Ken Cook Co. first opened our doors in 1944 to write and produce military equipment manuals for manufacturers was to continually improve productivity, quality and delivery by keeping pace with the latest technological advances. Since that time, I’m proud to say we’ve led the way to become a technically superior, single-source provider of technical content, management and delivery solutions.
Call us TodayOver the years we’ve seen (and initiated!) a lot of changes in the way technical information is used and communicated. In the 1950s, we were one of the first companies to provide all the services our clients would need for their technical manuals under one roof. To this day, design, development, programming, illustration, desktop, editing, proofing, replication, finishing, distribution, content management, inventory, shipping and fulfillment services are available completely within our facilities.
More recently, the Internet and mobile solutions have increased the demand for accurate, timely technical content available 24/7. We offer solutions to help our customers in the construction, agricultural and mining equipment, heavy-duty truck/automotive, lawn/garden, consumer durables, marine, controls, engines, military and aerospace industries meet those changing demands.
Continued research, development and monitoring of emerging technologies help us provide you with better, cost-effective solutions. That’s what drove us to develop and offer our media1off® print on demand solution. Customers were struggling to fulfill outdated or overstocked inventory. We offer a solution that takes that component of their business from a cost center to a revenue generator.
Our professional staff offers full, flexible service and total support from project inception to completion. By doing so, we can become extensions of your staff, capable of handling all – or part – of your next project. Please visit us, tour the complete facilities and get to know us better. We look forward to exploring ways we can work together to deliver technically superior solutions for you and your customers.
