"Miller offers the quality, reliability and technology that we demand in our business. Ya know, you try and do business and align your company with other people and organizations that you know have the same values you do." - Kyle Tucker
Married engineers Kyle and Stacy Tucker had no idea when they custom-built unique suspension parts for a '69 Camaro pet project that it would lead to a successful business. From humble beginnings in a two-car garage in Detroit to its 30,000-square-foot home in Mooresville, N.C., Detroit Speed Inc. has been on one wild ride and today is a go-to source for custom fabrication projects and its product line of automotive parts.
Detroit Speed has an extensive product line, and the development and manufacturing of new products is now the largest portion of the business. Detroit Speed has a separate building for custom project work on highly detailed muscle cars with track inspired parts. Working on seven or eight projects at any one time, the company stages work flow to include fabrication, paint and body and assembly. Between the two sides of the business, Kyle and Stacy have 15 Miller welders and relayed that nearly half of their employees weld daily.
