For the past 44 years, the Company has successfully rebuilt engine cylinder heads while developing an inventory of replacement heads and parts so customers can bring theirs in to be worked on, or immediately exchanged. Customers remove the cylinder head from their car, truck, boat, forklift, farm equipment, generator, motorcycle, etc., and bring it to the shop.

“At the core of our business practice, exchanging cylinder heads is a unique service,” said the Seller. 80% of customers are auto repair shops, engine rebuilders, and car dealers. Warranty work accounts for about 10% of efforts. 20% are people who repair and restore their own vehicles or seeking cylinder heads not widely available.

Today, a wide variety of cylinder heads are included in the extensive inventory with a cost value of more than $300,000. There is an additional $100,000 in head cores and $3,000 worth of head bolts. A highly detailed inventory is available to highly qualified buyers for review in due diligence. All inventory is subject to daily operations final counts may vary at closing.

The Sellers, (a husband-and-wife team) purchased the 20-year-old business in 1998 from the original owner. Mrs. Seller initially worked in the office part-time but has taken over as the lead partner in the last few years.
