QA1 Expands On R&D Facility

QA1, a manufacturer of high-performance suspension components, recently completed its expanded and remodeled Research and Development facility that allows more space to bring in vehicles for test fitments and installations, as well as new for product development.

This 38’ x 60’ R&D area houses two 2-post lifts and a 4-post drive-on lift and alignment system. An adjacent engineering room includes a shock dyno, shock building station, FaroArm and welding station for research and adjustments.

“As QA1 continues to grow and expand its product lines, even more time is being spent on research and development,” said Karl Hacken, VP of Engineering at QA1. “The R&D expansion and remodel gives our engineering team even more equipment and space for product development, so keep an eye out for many exciting new products from QA1 in the next year.”

This addition is part of the expansion project that increased QA1’s manufacturing space to over 83,000 square feet in Lakeville, Minnesota, to accommodate the company’s growth over the past couple of years. QA1 now has more manufacturing, assembly and distribution space, allowing QA1 to add to its long line of American-made products and continue pushing into the future as a leader in innovation for the performance automotive and industrial markets.
