The new home of JRi Shocks.
JRi Shocks, The New Era In Racing Shocks, is proud to announce that the company is moving to its new facility at 136 Knob Hill Road, located in Lakeside Park, Mooresville, NC, effective June 24, 2013. With nearly 5 acres of land and 69,000+ square feet of buildings, this former home of Red Bull Racing’s NASCAR Cup Team will provide the added space to accommodate our rapid expansion and future growth.
The new facility will provide the needed physical foundation for JRi to continue to be a leader in the production and tuning of the finest Racing and OEM shock absorbers and struts in the world. Additionally, with the new facility, JRi will be able to expand its fast growing full line suspension service for the Motorcycle Market (with on-site, full service of shocks and forks) and the Street Performance Market (with chassis dyno and scale set). These new features will allow you to send or bring your suspension components or vehicle in for service upgrades and JRi Shocks latest products.
Dan Kungl, Managing Director, stated, “In a very positive way, the growth of our business has forced us to find a new location. As we have expanded our market segments such as Drag, Powersports, Short Track, Street Performance, Off-Road, Sportscar, and NASCAR-ARCA, we have run out of room at our current location. The new facility at 136 Knob Hill Road will provide our engineers and technicians the space they need to continue to provide the highest quality products and services, as well as, provide the extra room we need for the development of the next phase of suspension products, including electronic integration. Our new location should serve the company well in to the future, and we invite our customers and potential customers to come visit our new facility and see what we have to offer.”
Jeff Ryan, Technical Director, stated, “In my 30+ years of designing suspension products, this is one of the most exciting milestones that we have achieved. The opportunity to provide this facility to our employees and customers is fantastic. Our technical capabilities are now endless with engineering and technical staff being seamlessly integrated. I look forward to JRi Shocks new future and new home.”
