Keen Dist is a 100% skater-owned apparel & hardware distributor.
Founded in the UK in 2011, we carry over a decade of industry experience. Our expansion into US and EU based operations allows us to apply this knowledge to retailers and brands globally.
We love working closely with brands and stores to support skateboarding on a scene level, but also pride ourselves on the individual relationships we continue to build every day. This dedication to the skate industry informs a marketing strategy built on an intimate knowledge of the brands we carry, alongside the retailers, with a focus to provide continuous and current content across all our social media channels.
Since the very beginning, our drive has been to unite the brands we believe in and provide a platform for their products in a marketplace they deserve.
Ultimately we want to encourage the growth of skateboarding by supporting independant businesses and giving back to this unique community whenever we can.
The Ben Raemers Foundation is creating a platform and safe space for people to talk about mental health within the context of the skateboarding world, breaking down fears, improving knowledge and changing preconceptions and misgivings around mental health stigma and taboos.
We're very proud at Keen to have teamed up with The Ben Raemers Foundation, not just supporting them with donations, but more importantly using our network of accounts to promote suicide awareness training within stores, as well as support for anyone who may need it.
