Not Just Another Woman in the Industry…

It wasn’t long ago that when a male called a business to get his questions answered regarding automotive performance products and he heard a female voice on the other end, his attitude and the tone in his voice would shift to “she has no idea” and he would say, “Just have one of your guys give me a call about this.”

Although we never wanted to be “one of the guys,” we’ve worked hard for acceptance, appreciation and respect. Our passion for our industry and its advancement is what has driven us to make meaningful contributions.
