Apr 14, 2014

Goodson Tools & Supplies for Engine Builders, Winona, Minn., has purchased all assets of Kwik-Way Valve Seat Tooling division.

“We’re very proud to have the opportunity to manufacture and distribute Kwik-Way valve seat grinding tools and supplies,” said David Monyhan, Goodson national sales manager. “Kwik-Way has a reputation for quality within the industry that Goodson is proud to carry on.”

Monyhan added Goodson will also be manufacturing the original KW stone holders and wheel dressers to complete the full seat grinding kit.

“Having Goodson purchase this product line is a great outcome,” said Dennis Mullarkey, Kwik-Way national sales manager. “Their reputation for quality and service closely mirrors our own. We, at Kwik-Way, are confident that Goodson will build on the traditions we have established.”

Goodson hopes to be shipping parts by June 2014, according to a press release.

“We are especially proud to manufacture Kwik-Way electric seat drivers, as they are extremely important to anyone who grinds valve seats,” Monyhan added. “We will be offering these drivers for both Kwik-Way and Sioux. In addition, Goodson will continue to offer the grinding wheel specs developed by Kwik-Way.”
