At Sol Manufacturing we provide high quality machined parts made from a wide variety of different materials and for a range of industries. Our customers come to us with a challenge or problem, and our team develops a solution for it. For one of our customers, we recently built custom racing wheel washers that they had designed themselves. They had a race coming up the following weekend, and we were able to deliver them quickly so they could be installed for the race.
Jay Shuler, owner of HPF Racing and Brain Child, does a lot of contract engineering work and designs components for race teams in northern Illinois. He comes to us for both of his companies to handle the larger volume manufacturing and production work, as well as for jobs that require a fast turnaround, which is often the case in the racing world.
For the custom racing wheel spacers project, Jay’s racing friend needed wheel washers for a new type of competition wheel. His current washers didn’t fit the new wheels and weren’t working properly. To solve the problem Jay designed a new type of wheel spacer and asked us to make them. His friend had a race that weekend and needed them completed very quickly. Our team was able to turn around the project in time for the race – just two days from request to delivery.
“Sol Manufacturing is very good at getting things done and figuring out tough challenges. They produce very high quality machined parts and components. I use them for a lot of my larger volume manufacturing projects, but also when I’m in a pinch. I’ll give Braulio a call when I need something fast and, if they have the machine time, he’ll fit it in for me. Their shop uses the latest state-of-the-art technology and is always very clean and organized.
“When it comes to parts like wheel spacers or other racing components, most guys say ‘I need this tomorrow.’ Racing is a different level of making things happen, and the machined parts have to be right the first time. The race starts whether you are there or not. With the wheel spacers, Sol came through, and they always come through. If you need machined parts right the first time, then choose Sol Manufacturing. When you don’t want to waste time and money, then go to Sol Manufacturing.”
