PK Floats: Hitting The Water Running
Founded in 1954 by Pete Kelner of International Falls, Minnesota, PK Floats Inc. had been purchased in 2000 by Alton Bouchard of Maine. He moved manufacturing from New Mexico to Lincoln, Maine. Alton’s unexpected death in February of 2013 left many owners and prospects in limbo on whats in store for the future of the company. But, in 2015 PK Floats found new owners. The purchase, coupled with a substantial investment in the Maine facility put new life back into the company.
2015 saw PK Floats back in production and a sigh of relief went through many of the aviation forums out there. The upbeat attitude reflects throughout the industry.
