K&N Makes Top 100 Most Influential list for Powersports Business Magazine

       Printer Image
RIVERSIDE, CA, -- In looking back on their first 100 issues the editors of Powersports Business Magazine asked themselves, "Who were the most influential companies in the industry over the last six years?"

To find the answer they looked through their past issues, talked to consumer magazine editors, as well as friends in the business, and came up with a comprehensive list of companies and organizations that "had a significant impact on the powersports industry during the last six years".

Considerations included market share, product development, industry involvement, and innovation in the way a company does business.

Their research was extensive and in the end editors of Powersports Business Magazine named K&N Engineering to their 2004 top 100 Most Influential Powersports Companies. The list was created to recognize companies whose accomplishments were most notable in the powersports business during the magazine's first 100 issues (1998-2003).

A plaque announcing the honor was presented to Tom Cates, Powersports Manager for K&N Engineering and will be proudly displayed in the lobby of the K&N's world headquarters, in Riverside, California.

Of the companies listed, K&N Engineering was the only filter manufacturer. Nearly a fifth of the other companies included in the Powersports Business list are companies K&N works closely with. K&N would like to congratulate the distributors, partners and associations who were also recognized and who have helped K&N achieve this honor.
