23 Years of POWER & Our Third Expansion

 

We started with a cutting-edge air filter in a near-empty 3200 square-foot office. At the time, Dick Cepek was looking to enter the performance filter market and was willing to take a chance on a new, start-up company, and this was the perfect opportunity to break into the market.

 

Soon after, we manufactured more and more private label filters for well-known performance companies and rapidly developed more vehicle applications. We naturally progressed into designing our own intake systems and sold them to the customers directly.

In 2001, we were able to progress into a larger building, and in 2007, an even larger one. Over the years, more space has enabled us to ramp up manufacturing capabilities, expanding our product line to include exhaust, intercoolers, turbos, suspension and more. 23 years later, we are still expanding, not only in size, but also in product line offerings.

This milestone is highlighted by recently acquiring a new 127,000 square foot building, only a short distance away from our Corona, CA facility. Our taste for pushing the limits kept us going- it's what innovation is all about.

 

Throughout the years, we've overcome obstacles, from the risks of starting a new business to the 2008 recession. Despite the pandemic and recent years that challenged us all, we persevered with optimism, teamwork, and strategy. Even with all these challenges, we have continued to grow, exceeding the capacity of our existing buildings. Acquiring this greater building enables our operations to match our growth, with the cumulation of our facilities now covering over 300,000 square feet.
