Eibach North America Open House

Celebrating the spring makers 30 years in the U.S. with a tour of its Corona, Calif., facility

Head east out of Orange County down California State Route 91 just past the Interstate 15 junction and you can't miss that giant red logo that we all know. We speak of the Eibach Springs sign, on the side of its building in Corona, and recently the company hosted an open house to celebrate 30 years producing springs, dampers, anti-sway bars, and other suspension and handling hard goods in North America. As part of the commemoration, Eibach offered to journalists tours of its facility, and we showed up at the crack of 10 a.m. to snag the first expedition of the day courtesy of Mark Krumme, Head of Eibach North America's marketing department.

Inside the factory and warehouse we got a look at the step-by-step process that goes into designing, creating, and assembling various products. Each is made onsite, and every step into the products' build processes is inspected closely by the machine operators to insure a quality product is made. The tour included an inside look at what it takes to make an Eibach component from raw material to the final product in the box. Eibach's Corona facility contains the same raw materials, machinery, and operation training as the other two warehouses across the globe, one in Germany and one in China. This assures that all manufacturing facilities worldwide make the same product to the same specifications.

From bending the wires to painting the final product, it was all action inside of the Eibach factory. For a more detailed look at how springs are made, read up on the manufacturing process here - the info is a bit dated but still largely accurate.

Superstreet: If there’s one thing you guys hate with all of your soul, it’s the idea of OEM vehicle manufacturers teaming up with one another on new vehicle offerings, the way that GM and Honda/Acura have agreed upon.

Unlike most builds that are a product of some grand scheme of daydreaming and sometimes documenting plans for picking up a specific car and applying a headful of parts and changes to it, this turbocharged 1995 Mazda Miata is the exact opposite.
