Default Miken sold to K2 (same company also owns Worth & Rawling

I wonder if they'll start combining Miken and Worth technology. The new PST Ultra???


Miken Sports sold
By David Heiller
Argus News Editor

Miken Sports in Caledonia has been sold to K2, Incorporated.

Jeb Griffith, the founder and chief executive officer of Miken, confirmed the news on November 15.

Griffith said the sale had been in the works for almost a year, “It was a very thorough study we did of each other,” he said.

Miken manufactures composite bats, which are made from petroleum-based resins. It began in 1997, and has annual sales of $10-12 million, with more expected next year, Griffith said.

Griffith said he sold the company partly because of his age, which is 66. “And there was interest in what we did,” he added.

The past two years, Miken was the number one selling high-end softball bat in the United States, Griffith said.

“If you’re going to pick a time to sell, I would choose when you’re at the top of your game. And we definitely were and are,” he said.

Rumors have been circulating about the sale for quite some time, but Griffith did not acknowledge them because there was never any certainty that the sale would go through.

He said employees are now glad that they have closure on the sale.

Asked about job security for the 60 employees at Miken, Griffith said, “It’s too new to know where they are.” But he did say this: “They plan to stay here for a while.”

He said he has been told that no jobs are going away, but he added that the work force depends on the volume of bats that are sold.

“I’m just pleased that no jobs were lost in transition.”

Miken bats are knows for their good feel, Griffith said. The composite that they are made from is a closely guarded trade secret, he added.

Griffith said that K2 had a press release for the purchase of Miken being prepared. The Argus did not receive it in time for this story.

Griffith also started Winnebago Software, which he sold to Sagebrush Corporation in 2000.

About K2, Inc.

K2 incorporated is a $1.6 billion company based in Carlsbad, California. It owns some familiar names in the sporting industry, such as Shakespeare, Stearns, Pflueger, Rawlings, and Worth. Miken will be in the same division of K2 as two other “diamond sport” companies, Rawlings and Worth.

So, the question then becomes whether or not this fortells of possible bat bannings on the horizon. Why not get out while your product is still usable???

Very interesting that K2 now owns Worth, Miken, and Rawlings... At what point does it start to mix technology across those divisions?

The CNT Carbon Nanotube Technology strengthens composite structures to allow for bigger sweet spots and maximum performance. The Extended Flex design lengthens the sweet spot and the Opti-Flex composite handle provides maximum flex. Hot 98 MPH performance. Meets all major softball associations bat performance standards.
