We here at powerTV recently had the pleasure of touring the Billet Specialties production facility located in the Chicago area suburb of La Grange, Illinois where their extensive line of wheels and billet components are designed and manufactured, carried through from the drawing board to the shipping department.
Billet Specialties is one of the most recognizable names in the hot rodding industry and with its foray into the racing world, is quickly making a name for itself in an arena long dominated by competing brands. The company produces over 600 accessory products including dress-up and various components, along with over 90 wheel styles, delivering the most diverse product line in the industry.
In addition to their extensive line of top quality products however, Billet Specialties prides itself on its unrivaled quality control practices and quick, ready-to-order delivery practices that have earned them their place amongst hot rodding’s elite. If you’ve ever worked in or been through a manufacturing facility of any kind, they often tend to be cluttered and dirty. Not the case for Billet Specialties, however. Suffice it to say, you could practically eat off the floor in most areas of the facility, and each segment of the manufacturing process has its own distinct space with everything kept neat and organized.
And so ends our tour through the Billet Specialties facility. We can’t thank Scott Sandoval enough for graciously allowing us to visit and view up-close every facet of their manufacturing process that we believe sets the standard for production facilities every bit as much as their products set the standard in the hot rodding world.
