QA1 enters new era with state-of-the-art facility

New building has over 100,000 square feet of manufacturing, office and distribution space.

QA1 has moved to a brand-new headquarters. Located just two miles from QA1’s previous facilities, this new building combines all of QA1’s operations under one roof, improving efficiencies across the company.

Providing over 100,000 square feet of manufacturing, office, and distribution space, the new building will allow QA1 to continue adding to its long line of American-made products.

“We are excited to provide this new facility to everyone at Team QA1. The investment and move shows our commitment to our employees, our customers, and our community,” says Melissa Scoles, President of QA1. “We are proud of what we’ve built in Lakeville and are excited to continue making quality American-made products here for years to come. The new facility provides space for more equipment, inventory and innovation, while providing modern workspaces for our team to be more comfortable and efficient.”

This new state-of-the-art facility will have multiple improvements over the previous facilities, including dedicated machining, fabrication, and composites manufacturing cells, an R&D center, complete climate control, and planned space to grow into. This new building will provide the QA1 team with a cohesive and modern environment to produce the innovative and high quality suspension and driveline products QA1 is known for.

“We are excited to show the space off and even more excited to continue providing our customers with the highest caliber customer support and products.”
