Louisville, KY USA-- iKeyless, LLC announces the development of their new division Solid Keys USA, a high-tech aftermarket automotive key development unit within the company.
Solid Keys USA is America’s newest key producer and a genuine innovator, leveraging novel technologies to create products that help retailers, locksmiths, and automotive repair professionals streamline inventory and processes, as well as reduce costs.
“The past decade has seen automotive key systems transition from traditional separate key/remote systems to integrated remote-head keys, directly contributing to skyrocketing inventory costs suffered by locksmiths,” said Mark Lanwehr, Founder and CEO of iKeyless, LLC.
“Our Solid Keys USA product development division will develop new and innovative products that will help locksmiths keep pace with changing technologies, and offer a high-quality, affordable, FCC-certified product that will satisfy their customer’s needs,” he continued.
Solid Keys USA is producing a series of the world's first universal remote-head keys, known collectively as “Universal Car Keys.” This technological breakthrough allows for many keys of varying manufacturers, makes and models to be combined into a limited number of universal keys. This reduction in stock will enable locksmiths, auto repair shops, and retailers to enter the automotive key and remote business by dramatically decreasing their startup and stock costs.
The Universal Remote-Head Ford Key (URHKFO) - the first release in the Universal Car Keys product line - will be officially debuted at the Aftermarket Automotive Product Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas from November 3-5, 2015. The URHKFO will cover approximately 95% of all Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles from 2005 to 2015, and will have all of the capabilities of the OEM.
Throughout 2016, Solid Keys USA expects to have their entire product line of Universal Car Keys ready for distribution.
