Lingenfelter’s Expansion Strategy Leads to New Facility

In keeping with its expansion strategy, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering has opened a new, multi-purpose facility in Wixom, Mich., to keep pace with growing demand for the company’s performance products and services. The new 30,000 square-foot facility is an addition to Lingenfelter Performance Engineering’s (LPE) original engine and vehicle build operations located in Decatur, Ind.

“Continual well-planned development and expansion of all the operations that make up this brand have made Lingenfelter a turn-key automotive performance supplier,” said Ken Lingenfelter, CEO/owner, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering. “Our new Wixom Build Facility is a fully operational state-of-the-art engine and vehicle customization center, complete with top-of-the-line engine and chassis dynamometers, and CNC tooling and machining capabilities, all operated by LPE trained technicians.”

Lingenfelter’s new Wixom Build Facility is also a destination that offers performance enthusiasts a unique experience. All Lingenfelter performance components, including its growing line of crate engines, and Lingenfelter-engineered cars and trucks, will be available for purchase at the Wixom facility. With an initial staff of seven technicians, the Wixom Build Facility will feature one-stop-shopping, offering on-site performance tuning and restyling, and engine tuning for GM vehicles, including Cadillacs, CTS-Vs, Corvettes, Camaros, Pontiacs, and Chevrolet/GMC trucks and SUVs. Tuning customers receive a USB flash drive with before and after dyno numbers indicating the increase in horsepower of their vehicles.

Enthusiasts can view a sampling of vehicles from the Lingenfelter Collection in a new showroom housed in the Wixom Build Facility, which will feature a rotating lineup of some of world’s most revered vehicles.

Each Saturday morning, from May 3 through Sept. 20, there will be a Cars & Coffee car show taking place at the LPE Wixom Build Facility from 8 a.m. until 10 a.m. Lingenfelter apparel will be available at the new Wixom facility. Additionally, shoppers can visit the on-site Lingenfelter retail store, which carries Lingenfelter-branded apparel, gifts and automobile accessories.

The Wixom Build Facility opened on the heels of the Lingenfelter Performance Engineering Warehouse, conveniently located near Lingenfelter Motor Sports in Brighton, Mich. A global distribution center, the LPE Warehouse was established to house the company’s rapidly growing performance components design and distribution division supplying components to distributors, dealers and the Lingenfelter build facilities.
