“We would like to formally announce the formation of AKA Products, Inc. Once a brand of Kyosho Corporation of America AKA has now been split off to its own company to further build on the early success of their products.

The team at AKA Products, Inc. still remains Mark Pavidis, Gil Losi, Jr. and Joel Johnson. In addition we would like to welcome Gil Losi, Sr. to the management team. His years of experience and success in the hobby industry will further add to the already explosive growth of the AKA brand. We will follow up in the next week or so with our contact information after we get settled into our new building.“

An interesting development and although Joel Johnson remains as vice president of Kyosho America, the two other original AKA members Gil Losi Jr. and Mark Pavidis will only work for AKA from now on. Mark Pavidis will continue to race for Kyosho in 2009.
