During our tour of the USA via Route 66 we stopped just outside Las Vegas at a place called Henderson, the home town of Scott Drake. People who order parts from us obviously know that we stock their parts, but this time we went to meet them. Their corporate facility spans more than two-acres that includes engineering, manufacturing, sales and warehouse space that ships over 10,000 products each day to their suppliers around the world, including us. The company has been trading now for over three decades and started with only a single product for the classic Ford Mustang.
The entrance has a showroom to showcase just some of their parts.
We had a look around the facility and Scott Drake himself posed for a couple of pictures with me in front of their very own Research & Development 2015 5.0 GT Mustang.
We had a spot of lunch and discussed business plans and where the importance of Scott Drake products fits into those plans. Later on Scott gave me the keys to their car so I could take it out for a spin where I thoroughly enjoyed myself, it’s difficult to give a car back that you enjoy so much. A superb experience.
Under the hood there is a fantastic little touch of the Ford Mustang Logo which unfortunately is covered up by insulation. How many people knew that was there?
I meet my Sales Manager Stephan who looks after our account back in the UK.
To end our visit in style, Mustang Maniac were presented with another Scott Drake Silver Award for 2014 to add to our growing collection. This award will be proudly displayed on our wall with the other awards presented to us by Scott Drake.
We would like to offer our special thanks to Scott, Stephan and all his staff for their valuable time and exceptional hospitality. A great day we are sure not to forget.
