Keene Technology, Inc.

Keene Technology, Inc. is a world-class manufacturer of automatic splicers and turret rewinders.

In 1985, John Keene began consulting with a machinery manufacturer that was interested in developing a reliable, inexpensive automatic splicer for the narrow-web newspaper press market. John’s expertise as a design engineer and director of development for two splicer manufacturers in northern Illinois made him the perfect candidate for this endeavor. Along with his wife and co-founder Terry Keene, John founded what is now Keene Technology, Inc, a world-class manufacturer of automatic splicers, turret rewinders, and other web handling equipment. From our initial offering to the newspaper market, we have expanded to serve MANY every web-fed industries: tag and label, packaging, converting, business forms, envelope, folding carton, and more.

A rugged, solid-steel frame is the backbone of our equipment; we then incorporate readily available off- the-shelf components. This gives us a solid foundation from which to produce cutting edge equipment while maintaining a cost effective price tag. Although our products and services have expanded, we are still dedicated to the concept that got us where we are today, reliability, affordability, and a straightforward approach to doing business.

KTI’s steady growth over the past twenty five years is a testament to our equipment’s ability to maximize the production of virtually any web-fed process line. As worldwide competition expands, printers and converters will have to take advantage of every opportunity to maximize production and reduce waste. That opportunity is efficient web handling equipment from KTI.

In 2010 the KTI family mourned the loss of our founder, John Keene. With the dedication of our employees under Terry Keene's leadership, John's vision has continued to inspire us to the level of quality and craftsmanship we have been known for over the years.
