About Us


Eureka!  Saddlematic




Eureka Specialty Products, LLC is a family owned operation established in 2001 and owned by career welder, Jim Flynn and his wife, Khileen.

“We have worked hard to improve and perfect our product as well as our methods of manufacturing in order to offer superior quality at an affordable price.

Therefore, our mission is to provide complete satisfaction to our customers by providing the highest quality motorized saddle rack in the industry with personal and efficient service.”

Jim was a welding instructor for 20 years at a vocational high school and also owned and operated a fabrication shop.  In 1999, retiring from the school district, Jim built his own facility and started a high tech shop that features mig and tig welding on stainless and aluminum for the computer and flow meter industries.


While attending a team roping event in 2003, Jim tripped INTO his trailer tack room one evening while trying to step into the door to place his saddle on the stationary rack.  Two nights later he tripped OUT of the tack room while carrying his saddle and thought “there HAS to be a better way”.  He began building a prototype of a saddle rack that would swing OUTSIDE the tack room and lower the saddles.

Jim is now on his fourth revision of that first prototype and feels he has perfected the best and highest quality motorized saddle rack that is available on the market today.  The Eureka! Saddlematic was the very first motorized saddle rack to be presented to the public.

The EUREKA!  Saddlematic is a patent pending invention that is marketed by the family company, Eureka Specialty Products, LLC.

Khileen is the office administrator for both the welding company and Eureka Specialty Products.

Khileen has a secretarial and paralegal background from which she retired to help with the administration of the family companies.

The Flynn’s employ one of their four sons who works tirelessly as a welder but also assists with fabrication and assembly (and chores) when necessary. Chad runs the “tig” end of the shop for Flynn & Company Welding, Inc.

The Flynn’s are the proud parents of five grown children and seven grandchildren (3 girls and 4 boys—ranging in age from four to eleven).

They have their own outdoor arena for Jim to practice his team roping skills as well as entertain their children and grandchildren as they enjoy learning and honing their horsemanship skills.

Along with their five children, the Flynn’s were deeply involved in 4-H, Jim serving as barn superintendent for 30 years as well as Chairman of the Sale Committee and Fair Board President. Khileen began a 4-H Club for which she was a leader for 21 years, as well as serving as Assistant Superintendent of the Hog Barn and Sale Committee secretary. All five children (and hopefully soon the grandchildren) raised and showed hogs and cattle throughout their 4-H years. Jim and Khileen recently sold their 50 registered mother cows, after years of showing and calving their cattle near their Platteville, Colorado home.

Besides Jim’s team roping and Khileen’s photo-journaling art and design projects, Jim and Khileen enjoy trail riding in the Rocky Mountains, camping, fishing, travel, and time with family and friends.
