Serving a Wide Range of Industries with Liquid Transfer Solutions

The three generations of Sampsons employed at KENT Systems, a Colorado-based designer and manufacturer of plastic components, are celebrating the company’s 15th year as a family owned business.

Founded by Kent Sampson in 2001, the company is now overseen by Kent’s son and Chief Operations Officer (COO), Lyle, and his wife and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Linda. With Lyle and Linda’s son recently joining operations, Kent Systems now proudly employs three generations of Sampsons. It maintains its roots as a family- owned company even as it expands, continuing to offer the customer service and superior products upon which KENT Systems was founded.

“Instead of focusing on serving a niche industry, we concentrated our efforts on developing high-quality, functional liquid distribution systems,” Lyle Sampson, KENT COO and Production Engineer said. “Over the past 15 years, our priority has been focusing on innovative ways to improve and expand our product line. We’ve pioneered a variety of products that have since become the standard.”

What started as a single line of quick couplings has turned into a library of innovative products serving multiple practical applications, including additional Quick Coupling Lines, Tube Fittings, Media Bags, and Luer Fittings.
Holding more than 5 different patents, KENT Systems has also demonstrated its commitment to innovation by taking its engineering principals to its production center. After constructing its own clean room, KENT Systems developed an automated, high-quality production system to produce its product line. Dubbed the “lights out” system because it continues to operate after the workforce has turned off the lights and gone home, it allows KENT Systems to manufacture premium components at an affordable price.

“A lot of our customers are familiar with the quality products we produce, but they’re less aware of the work we put in to making them affordable,” Lyle said. “We’re really proud of the innovations we made behind the scenes, as well as the family-business culture we’ve been able to maintain in our first 15 years.”
