Well it's been 5 years since we took a tour of BBK's last custom manufacturing facility, recently we were invited to tour BBK's new and additional 25,000ft R&D / parts facility.
Since 1988 - BBK has dedicated itself to designing and building cutting-edge high-performance parts and accessories for today's EFI-equipped auto & truck models while maintaining the OEM quality levels.
2004 marked the opening of an additional 25,000 sq. ft. research and design facility that also houses their own in-house mold facility, which has been busy cranking-out a record number of new products. Some of these new products include the all-new line of "SSI-Series" performance intake manifolds for such popular models as the 5.0L Ford Mustang, GM LS-1 series and the 1.8L Honda.
Let's take the tour !
This means nice office spaces with vaulted ceilings, real hardwood floors, private bathrooms, high speed internet, the works :-) The "name" of their building is simply "2004" (with a small plaque in front) the year it was built.
Brian's main office opens up into a large open glass area that also looks down onto the first floor entrance. BBK also purchased the lot across the street for future expansion.
Moving down the halls we get to the conference area and other offices for sales, R&D, computer aided design, etc.
We still have BBK's first catalog from close to 2 decades ago (their catalogs over the years showcased on the wall), and we watched the company grow from a little rented garage space to what they have today.
Walking downstairs we see the dyno-pit being created that will compliment the test area in the facility. Which should be installed by the time you read this.
