Miller Weldmaster Empowers Kokopelli Raft Co. For Greater Production Outcomes With T300 Extreme Curve

NAVARRE, Ohio — June 30, 2013 — For decades Miller Weldmaster has been the first choice globally of manufacturers of all sizes. Serving companies ranging from startups to international corporations, the Navarre-based manufacturer has equipped dozens of businesses in multiple industries with the means to meet all of their manufacturing needs with promptness and efficiency. One manufacturer, Kokopelli Raft Co. is using one of Miller Weldmaster’s machines to create quality packrafting products for nature enthusiasts everywhere.

The Denver, Colorado-based startup has been using the Miller Weldmaster T300 Extreme Curve to create packraft prototypes, and then testing them for product effectiveness. Kelley Smith, Nick Rubino, and Alan Cummings, the company founders, noted their first capital purchase was the T300 Extreme Curve. The machine has been invaluable in their packraft production. Each packraft is made with tight-knit seam welds, ensuring ultimate product durability and backed by product guarantees.

“The Miller Weldmaster T300 machine has been very easy to ramp up on in terms of learning how to produce inflatables,” said the founders. “The training, service, and ease of use of the Miller Weldmaster T300 have exceeded our expectations, and we’re glad we made the investment.”

Reunited by their love for the outdoors and packrafting, Smith, Rubino, and Cummings began working out of a garage designing and testing different packraft models with the T300 Extreme Curve. They now are looking to take Kokopelli Raft Co. to the next level. They will begin by selling their products with an initial Kickstarter operation for two to three months and then swing into full-time production. Kokopelli looks forward to further use of the Miller Weldmaster T300 for creating “opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts to explore nature in its most serene settings.”
