KFG Racing Acquires GP Suspension

KFG Racing acquires established suspension products company.

After 17 years in business, GP Suspension has sold to the owners of KFG Racing in Auburn, Washington, the largest and most predominate suspension shop in the Pacific Northwest, providing service to road racers and sport bike riders.

GP Suspension's cutting-edge product line is well known to KFG Racing, having been a dealer and authorized service center for the past eight years. New owner, Barry Wressell, had also worked with GP Suspension during his road racing career, resulting in numerous championship wins.

"KFG Racing has extensive inside knowledge of the GP Suspension product line," says GP Suspension preceding owner Dave Hodges. "I have worked with them for many years now, and I am confident and eager to see the company move forward in their very capable hands."

The new ownership will support the current championship winning product line, and will also lead to new product development as part of the company's ambitious growth plans. Hodges is staying on as a consultant and helping with research and development of future products.

"We are immensely thrilled to be able to offer GP Suspension's products in house to our customers and dealers," says Barry Wressell of KFG Racing. "The blend of KFG Racing's service and race tuning experience with GP Suspension's excellent product line is precision."

GP Suspension currently has dealers throughout the U.S. and will be accepting applications for new dealers during the off season. Now that the relocation is complete, the company will be launching a new website with the updated product line in the months to follow.

GP Suspension was located in Oregon City, Oregon, prior to the purchase, but has since relocated to KFG Racing located at 1415 22nd ST NW STE D Auburn, WA 98001.
