How We Got Started
A little introduction about Adapted Performance. I / We are a very small operation still in it's infancy as far as businesses go but we are expanding. I started Adapted Performance after coming up with a few great parts designs for the Mazdaspeeds'. I realized that I could fill a gap in the market and provide great products for the community. I have a background in professional automotive repair and performance. Although Adapted Performance is not my main Job / Full time position, I aspire to make it my full time job. My family helps me out time to time with orders and other tasks too.
Currently I design all of the products I sell and plan to be a design / manufacture / sell direct company. I have lots of new ideas in the works and plan on expanding the product lineup very soon. I do have an exclusive vendor agreement set up with a performance parts vendor too I will announce soon.
I posted / post under the user name Turbo_Steve on the forums. I am always tinkering and trying out new ideas.
In house I have a new small/medium sized 3 axis cnc mill for prototype and parts production work and plan to add on a cnc lathe soon. I work with some great local machine shops for fabrication. I used to have a full in house powder coating setup, but found it to take up too much space and time. I now outsource powder coating locally. In house I do 3d printing for parts prototype work and have a vinyl cutter for custom vinyl graphics.
With the cnc mill I am planning on some exciting new products.
I run what I make and I sell only things that I would personally use on my cars.
Quality and passion goes into everything I sell. This is not a full time job for me yet but someday it could be. I can offer great products and service at an affordable price due to my low overhead and some friendships I have forged with machine shops. I do all powder coating and design work in house.
