After a nine-year hiatus pursuing other business opportunities, Nick Arias III has rejoined Arias Pistons, Gardena, California.
Arias brings much of the knowledge and experience he acquired during that time to be integrated into the daily operations at Arias Pistons to enhance product quality and customer service.
As domestic sales and new business development manager, his responsibilities will include custom and shelf order processing, technical assistance, engineering input and exploration of new business prospects. This technical background will lend itself to communication with engine builders, racers and general consumers to guide them toward the most appropriate forged pistons and hardware for their applications.
“During time I was away, Arias made great strides in quality and precision,” said Nick Arias III. “I’m excited to rejoin the company that I have so much history with, and leverage my relationships and knowledge to spread the word about Arias Pistons.”
As a veteran of the automotive aftermarket industry, Arias has over 35 years of experience in design, manufacture and application of pistons and engine components. He attended races with his father, Nick Arias Jr., since age five, began working in the family business at age seven, and built and raced dragsters since the age of 19.
In addition to dragsters, Arias has raced sprint cars, karts and lakesters, and is a member of the Bonneville 200 MPH Club and El Mirage 200 MPH Club.
