Holland, Mich., July 25 2016 – Racer Tech by Spectrum and ST USA Holdings are excited to announce the completion of a Master Distribution Partnership (Partnership) whereby ST USA Holdings will be assuming responsibility for the distribution, sales and marketing of the Racer Tech by Spectrum brand. As a part of the Partnership, Racer Tech will undergo a name change and will now be known as RT Pro UTV.

Racer Tech has been involved in the UTV (Utility Terrain Vehicle) industry since 2006 and is well known for producing high quality race inspired products for suspension, chassis and vehicle protection. According to Steve Olmstead, President of ST USA Holdings, “this Partnership will allow us to continue to expand our reach into the power sport aftermarket and provide a well-respected, quality foundation for us to continue developing UTV specifically tuned shock and suspension packages.”

As part of the Partnership, Racer Tech will be known as RT Pro UTV (RTPro). RT Pro will operate under the management of ST USA Holding Corp, who also operates multiple full size truck accessory companies from its Coldwater, MI facilities. The founder and former president of the Racer Tech brand Andrew Prins, will continue with the ST USA group as the Brand Manager of the relabeled RT Pro product line with a continued commitment to engineering and development of innovative U.S. made products. Prins said, “This brand has been my brainchild for over a decade now. It’s really exciting to know I’ll be a part of its future and I know the ST USA team is going to really take this brand and the UTV industries expectations to a whole new level.”

ST USA Holding Corp, a wholly owned subsidiary of FOX Factory, is the parent company of BDS Suspension, Zone Offroad Products, 4x4 Posi-Lok, and JKS Manufacturing. Sport Truck USA is a company with a reputation for manufacturing high-quality suspension components and providing excellent customer service within the automotive aftermarket industry. Known well in their respective industries for their “never out” policy, RT Pro customers can soon expect the legacy Racer Tech quality with the same commitment to customer service and same day shipping.

For the next week or two I will be relatively unavailable as I help manage the large transition process from moving our operational systems from our Holland, MI location to the new Coldwater, MI location.

We now have a staff of 20 people answering the phones and emails helping with sales and tech support to help relieve any delays people may have previously encountered. Our next step is to continue filling a new warehouse with more inventory of the same proven RT Pro / Racer Tech products this forum has come to appreciate over the years but on a level this industry has never seen before. Big things are coming.

In the mean time, please bear with all of us as we train all our new staff at the same time we continue to fill orders as fast as we can. We're still building parts and shipping every day here.

I will not be on the forums for a week or so now. For the best service please call 517-278-7768 or email [email protected] or [email protected] depending on your inquiry.

Thanks again to everyone who has helped us get this far!

Just an update on our massive transition we're working on right now.

We now have our new phone center up and running with 20 people standing by all day to take your calls and help with whatever you need.

As of this week we are now shipping everything out of our new 50,000 sq ft warehouse in Coldwater, MI. Please bear with us for a couple more weeks while we get everything unpacked, organized and stocked the way we always intended to be. We've got some huge supplier orders out now to stock up on springs, lifts, bumpers, braces and everything else you can find on our website RTproUTV.com. Still waiting on a lot of springs but once we get them we should finally really be ahead of the curve once and for all.

Soon the question won't be "when can it ship?", we'll be asking "how many you want?" Take a look at a few shots I took the other day of the main operation of Sport Truck USA, our parent company, of their current operation distributing BDS Suspension, Zone Offroad and JKS Manufacturing. We are now in the same family as these great companies and we're truly taking this industry to the next level whether it's ready or not!

Thought I would update this thread to let everyone know we are still trashing over here to get more product in stock to supply our growing dealer network and our expanding retail customer base. As of now we basically have anything you can find on our website in stock at any given moment and can usually ship the same day you order.

Our new manufacturing building is up and running and new equipment seems to be coming in weekly. That's always exciting!

Here's a few pics from the other day.
