LOCKWOOD, MO -- Kluhsman Racing
Components have become well-known across the nation for manufacturing
racing products whether its NASCAR or IMCA, dirt or asphalt.
At KRC Racing, research and development is their most
valuable service. Wherever they go people ask, "What's new this
year?" KRC actually designs and manufactures innovative
products. They listen to race drivers, their cre, and race teams to
develop the product and then test them constantly to give them the
best product available. "Our customer relations staff work
one-on-one with the people who use our products, so that we're
constantly staying at the top of our game," owner Mel Kluhsman mentioned.
Mel Kluhsman started his business in 1984 when he
started building modified parts for area chassis builders. "I
had quit a great job back in 1983 and struck out on my own. I took an
80 percent pay cut and worked 18-hour days. Life was good!"
owner Mel Kluhsman remarked. "My daughter started answering the
phone at the age of five or six and learned PC paint on some of the
first components we manufactured. My wife ran the turret lathe 40
hours a week when life was simpler," Kluhsman added.
KRC's patented fuel filters recently became approved
by the FFA for all long-range fuel application in the Raytheon (Beech
Craft) King Air aircraft. This filter cleans and reduces water in the
fuel. KRC is the only filter (patent #5536402) developed specifically
for racing and commercially owned aircraft. KRC filters can only be
purchased from KRC or their distributors. Don't buy a KRC knock-off,
you will NOT be getting what you paid for.
KRC Racing has the latest CNC Robotic Machining
Centers and High Production Multi-Spindle Screw Machines and the best
machine set-up technicians in the business. Their gageing/inspection
process and ISO 9001 w/design is second to none and contributes to
