ARI and Klock Werks share in commitment to innovation and breaking new barriers
Milwaukee, Wis., August 23, 2013 – ARI Network Services (OTCBB: ARIS), a leading provider of website, software, and data solutions that help dealers, distributors, and manufacturers Sell More Stuff!™, announced its sponsorship of Klock Werks Kustom Cycles, a leading provider of premium custom products for the powersports industry.
From their first trips to the Bonneville Salt Flats, Klock Werks’patented Flare™ Windshield was born out of a need for added stability and better air management. By 2008, not only had the Klock Werks Flare Windshield achieved much success, Laura Klock and daughters Erika and Karlee had become the first mother-daughter-daughter team in land speed racing history to hold records at the same time.
Growth led Klock Werks to a search for a better Web solution. Expanding from a small garage to the leading air management experts required them to service customers on a global basis. A strong eCommerce site and SEO strategy was a must. Klock Werks needed to add horsepower to their online sales and they chose ARI.
“The synergy with ARI was exactly what we had hoped for, ” said Laura Klock, Vice President and Founder of Klock Werks. “As we outgrew our provider, we were blessed to partner with ARI. The value ARI placed on customer service, innovation and passion to be the best was a natural fit. As our brand went worldwide, ARI fueled that growth, ” added Klock. “It seems only natural that our partnership with ARI extends to our activities at the Bonneville Salt Flats this racing season.”
“Klock Werks and ARI focus on breaking barriers and innovating for customers, ” said Roy W. Olivier, President and Chief Executive Officer of ARI. “What a fantastic opportunity to support a longstanding customer and industry maverick. We wish Laura and her team the best of luck in their attempt to break a new land speed record this year.”
This year, Team Klock Werks has joined Triumph Motorcycles to attempt to be the “fastest family” in history. Laura Klock and daughters will attempt to be the first mother-daughter-daughter trio in land speed racing history to go over 200 mph on the same bike, a Triumph 675R with a turbo setup. Brian Klock, Co-Founder of Klock Werks Laura’s husband, will attempt a record for the “World’s Fastest Trike”, a modified Triumph Rocket III, backed by MotorTrike and Carpenter Racing Engines. Also included in their attempts will be a production record in the 750cc Class on a production Triumph 675R, and a very special bike created by a group of students from Pine Bush, N.Y., through the “Helping With Horsepower Bike Rebuild” program.
“None of these attempts are possible without amazing companies like ARI, Triumph, Sony, Pirelli and more who join us in an effort to achieve our race team goals and to make a mark in the history books, ” concluded Laura Klock.
