Back in

1968 Gary Holzapfel —who at one time was em­ployed by an aero­space fas­tener man­u­fac­turer— de­vel­oped some bolts and studs for his racer friends that were a marked im­prove­ment over what was avail­able. Com­peti­tors like Don Prud­homme proved their ef­fec­tive­ness, which cre­ated a de­mand from other racers. This lead to the found­ing of Au­to­mo­tive Rac­ing Prod­ucts, Inc.

ARP has come a long way since then, grow­ing from what was lit­er­ally a garage work­shop to a sprawl­ing man­u­fac­tur­ing com­plex that en­com­passes seven build­ings and some 170,000 square feet. Ev­ery­thing is done in-house (en­gi­neer­ing, R&D, forg­ing, heat-treat­ing, ma­chin­ing, fin­ish­ing, pack­ag­ing and dis­tri­bu­tion) in ISO 9001:2008 and

AS9100 reg­is­tered fa­cil­i­ties.

The prod­uct line has grown sub­stan­tially from those first of­fer­ings to more than 4,700 fas­tener kits. New ap­pli­ca­tions are con­tin­u­ally be­ing ex­plored.
