In early 2007 Steve Millen set a goal to expand our manufacturing facility (one of our three buildings in Costa Mesa, California) by the end of 2008. After months of planning and dozens of re-designs the plans to double the size of our fabrication/manufacturing building were finalized. This expansion was necessary to meet the increasing demand for our exhausts, headers, sway bars and other Stillen made products. A little known fact – STILLEN’s manufacturing division makes sway bars, headers, exhaust system and other parts for some of the largest and best known brands in the performance industry.
During the last 22 years we have expanded from a small 1,000 square foot facility in Santa Ana, California into a 3 building campus occupying over 100,000 square feet in Costa Mesa, California next to the John Wayne airport. Within these 3 buildings 95% of the parts we manufacture are made in house. Along with the new building will come new machinery for both manufacturing and R&D. So, no matter what you can dream of, STILLEN will always be there pushing the performance envelope!
