The success of Mercury Marine has not occurred by chance. Since the company was founded in 1939, Mercury has consistently emphasized quality, innovation and reliability. That pledge remains as strong today as ever. Mercury Marine, a division of Brunswick Corporation of Lake Forest , Ill , began as the Kiekhaefer Corporation of Cedarburg , Wis. , when Carl Kiekhaefer and a small but dedicated staff of employees sought to design and produce the best possible boat engine.

As each goal was accomplished, it was replaced by more.That tradition has resulted in a literal embodiment of the Great American Dream. From a modest and inauspicious start, Mercury has grown into an industry leader recognized worldwide for its ability to foresee and fulfill the needs of its consumers. Its product brands include Mercury and Mariner outboards, Mercury MerCruiser sterndrives and inboards, Mercury Racing products, Mercury Precision Parts and Accessories, Mercury and Typhoon propellers and Mercury Jet Drives.

Mercury is the world's leading manufacturer of marine propulsion systems. Since the very beginning, Mercury has set the standards for the industry. When pending outboard emission standards challenged the industry, mercury took the lead in redesigning its product to reduce emissions and to not only meet, but also exceed the new standards. The OptiMax outboard engine concept was created to deliver exceptional performance from a two-stroke outboard with a completely new technology. With an average of 45 percent better fuel economy and smooth, smokeless, misfire-free operation, the OptiMax models were - and are - the benchmark for new-technology two-stroke outboards.

Ranger boats, today, are the finest ever built and whenever I see one being towed down the road, I get a lump in my throat because I know the owner is driving the best boat made and that he will be comfortable, safe and proud of his Ranger.

Since we began in 1968, Ranger boats have been designed by fishermen and built and tested by fishermen, for fishermen.

Although we build boats, what we really sell is reliable pleasure for our customers. We care about the quality of our products and the satisfaction of our customers, and we serve our customers both before and after the sale, because they are 'the Ranger family'.

We always remember that our customers work hard for their money and in their free time, deserve a boat that is beautiful, comfortable, consistently reliable and has the best resale value in the industry.

We've always known that any success Ranger has had came as a result of the people at work designing and building our boats. It amazes other companies today to realize how many of our employees have been with Ranger for their whole working careers. So many of our people have given the best part of their lives to Ranger and we appreciate them so much.

If you take care of your people and treat them right ... and take care of your customers and treat them right ... the company will continue to be successful.

We are fortunate to live in a country where there are no limits, a country that will let you go as far as you want to go. People ask me how long our boats last and I'm pleased to be able to tell them that I don't know yet ... our first boats are still out there fishing after 30 plus years.

We hope you'll test-drive a Ranger soon. It's a cozy, safe feeling to be part of the Ranger family.

KipJohn’s Gourmet Jerky is an exciting and quickly rising new company, that offers the most discriminate and "choosey" beef jerky enthusiasts, an absolutely "like no other" taste and texture experience.

Let us share KipJohn’s story. Kip and John are neighbors and best friends. About four years ago, in an effort to create just for themselves, a genuinely better tasting beef jerky than what was available in stores, Kip and John began to experiment with the most top quality of ingredients, including freshly sliced garlic, and freshly ground black pepper, as well as the finest slices of beef they could find. And find an awesome favor, they did!

It didn’t take long before family and friends, who were lucky enough to be given samples of this delicious new creation, were demanding "More!" and offering to pay for it. This "out-of-control" demand for Kip and John’s fabulous jerky resulted in the formation of KipJohn’s Incorporated. This family-owned company now offers the public a chance to enjoy their, (as their logo attests), "It’s like no other!" beef jerky.

Kip and John are proud of their product, and with good reason. Available in genuinely mouth-watering Bar-B-Que, and "knock your socks off" Garlic Pepper, this newly incorporated company established in 2003 is already selling in over 325 locations, and growing daily.

Their success has motivated Kip and John to release delectable "BBQ Pork Sticks", "Mild Beef Sticks", "Hot & Spicy Beef Sticks" and "Burn'n Beef Sticks" as an exciting addition to the KipJohn's Gouirmet Line. Come and share our most recent addition.

KipJohn's has opened their own store. "KipJohn's Gourmet Jerky, Specialty Foods and More." No only do we have our Beef Sticks, Pokr Sticks, and Wild Game Sticks available, but you can come in and try our salsas, sauces, dipping mustards and sauces, flavored nuts, and more. Gift certificates, Gift Baskets, Gift Cards for Birthdays, Holidays, and special occassion gift ideas. Saturday is "Saturday Tasting" where you can try these wonderful items.

Give KipJohn’s Gourmet Jerky a try, and you’ll be added to a growing list of happy customers who say, "It’s like no other!"
