A group gathered recently for a soup luncheon at a local community center learned about one of the area's global businesses.

Leslie Stratmoen was there and files this report.


On Monday, we reported on a recent presentation given by Dale Hall, who is the vice president of business development at the Kennon company in Sheridan.

At that time, we told you about how the company started, with a single airplane visor as a product, and how the company's since expanded to offer a variety of products to a global marketplace. Among the products we mentioned were interior and exterior protective airplane covers for the U.S. Military. But, one wonders, how did that come about.

Hall said it started with a phone call.

His company has also branched out, now, he said, to help preserve vintage military planes, which is an aspect of his job he really enjoys, and sometimes, he told his audience as he pointed to a projected image, comes with surprises.

At this point, he told the group gathered at the YMCA for the presentation, that when the military calls with special needs, they do their best to come up with a solution. For instance, he said, once again, as he pointed to a projected image, “does anyone know what this plane is?”

Now, he passed on much more information during the presentation. To listen to the program, click here.
