Investing in Research and Development leads to Sales Growth The company attributes its rapid sales growth to a sustained emphasis on investing in product development. Through its advancements, Car Keys Express has become the world’s only manufacturer of aftermarket versions of modern car keys, like remote keys and smart keys. The company’s proprietary technologies also allow it to remanufacture genuine OEM keys.

“New key technology is pushing prices up. Through embracing technology, we’re pushing them down,” said Mark Lanwehr, Owner and CEO of Car Keys Express. “Our industry-disrupting products and processes allow us to stock more keys while lowering costs dramatically.”

Eyes on the Future Car Keys Express is entering new channels and industries by creating breakthrough products. After developing a highly specialized, super-efficient key replacement system for its vans, Car Keys Express is now leveraging its expertise and procurement strengths to make in-house key replacement easier and more affordable than ever.

“We’re taking our compact system that turned us into a nationwide success, and we’re putting it into retail stores,” Lanwehr stated. “For the first time in 30 years, real automotive key replacement is coming back to retailers.”
