I have a few days worth of photos saved up I am posting below, they all look great!

Remember there is a giveaway going on right now on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/umiperformance

Enjoy!

Alex shows you UMI's first CNC vertical machining center. This Wasino VMC was purchased by Ryan's father long before UMI even existed and to this day still outputs quality UMI suspension pieces.



There's not too many ways to make a sway bar picture exciting, but I think we found the best way possible! Alex holds up a CNC bent sway bar for the rear of a S197 Mustang. All UMI sway bars are CNC bent or heat formed for consistency and strength.



One of the cool things about Alex is she was intrigued by our operation and how we manufactured our products. Jerry taught her some G and M codes and let her move the X and Y axis on our Daewoo CNC turning center. Race car parts start somewhere and this is where they start at UMI.



What's the best way to make a CNC turning center picture exciting? Adding Alex to it of course! This Supermax CNC turning center is 1 or 3 turning centers UMI uses to build all our round and hex components in house. We don't outsource, we build!



As soon as we saw this picture it wasn't hard to come up with a caption, Beauty and the Beast! Alex poses with UMI's '79 Monte Carlo, also known as the "Green Machine". UMI's Green Machine is a test bed for UMI G-Body products and can be found on the autox track on occasion.

Alex's outfit says it best - Made in the USA, always has been, always will be. UMI is proud to be a USA manufacturer and we appreciate your support



This is where most of our products start, the saw shop. Material is received in 12'-24' lengths, sawed to size, then sent to the machine shop for the finished product. UMI= Made in the USA!
