Oliver Racing Parts, manufacturers of high-performance connecting rods for motorsports applications, is moving its operations and manufacturing to a more modern facility in Charlevoix, Michigan.
The relocation will take place in three phases and is expected to be complete by the first week of October. The move will allow Oliver an opportunity to upgrade its manufacturing and packaging equipment in a new facility, enabling the company to continue expanding its line of high-performance products.
“The opportunity to move Oliver Racing Parts into a more modern facility allows us to upgrade the company and our products in multiple ways, while staying in Michigan,” said Joseph A. Moch, president and CEO of Oliver Racing Parts. “The move to a modern facility in a greener, outdoors-friendly environment will improve the quality of life for our employees and hopefully encourage them to grow with our company.
“The proximity to other automotive companies was a factor (in selecting Charlevoix), Moch continued. “As a native Michigander, I wanted to locate our company in an area with all the great things we have here: natural beauty of the Great Lakes region and outstanding quality of life for our employees. This is a great area to not only grow a family, but a company, too.”
Oliver Racing Parts will now be located at 5339 N. M-66 North in Charlevoix, a 70,000 sq. ft. facility. Effective October 1, the company’s new telephone number will be (231) 237-4515.
