Our business model has not been derived from any business seminar or book. It is simply our common sense approach of giving the customer what they want when they want it. Since we are hot rodders we feel we have a reasonably good idea what “it” is. We do the vast majority of our manufacturing in-house. We do the research and development, CAD drawings, prototyping, CNC machining, CNC tube bending, jig welding, shock assembly and dynoing, airspring crimping and burst testing, and final assembly all within our facility in Jasper, IN. This way we have complete control over every aspect of design, quality, and delivery. This is one reason why our back order rate is virtually ZERO. ALL of our tech/sales people have air suspension vehicles and have been involved in the design, manufacture, installation, and use of our suspension systems. We have a fleet of around 20 muscle cars, customs, and sport trucks that we use to demonstrate the performance of our suspension products and to continually refine them. You can find out more about our cars in the projects section. On our news site you...’ll find the most comprehensive technical data available for suspension systems in the world. Feel Free to call or email us with any questions. You can order online, by fax or pick up the phone and call! For questions or assistance with Ridetech products, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our office hours are from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM Eastern Standard Time, Monday through Friday. If you contact us outside of regular business hours, we will call you back or e-mail you within the next business day.
