About Metco Motorsports
In the mid 1990’s, Ron Kincaid was hired by Metco Inc., an Anderson,
SC-based CNC- business to design, develop, and market specialty
automotive performance parts. Drawing upon years of hands-on
car building and racing experience, Ron took advantage of the
then-new CNC technology and began to make some of his original and
innovative ideas for hardcore racing parts a reality.
The business began with suspension components. At the time,
many companies offered products that were better than the OEM
designs, but none that offered the no-compromise improvement in both
strength and function that Ron envisioned. Ron soon developed
the first billet lower control arms, which were CNC-machined from
solid aluminum and fitted with high-grade bushings. A few
years later, Ron introduced the first polyurethane-bushed
double-adjustable upper control arm, which for the first time ever
combined the benefits of in-car adjustability with the streetability
of polyurethane bushings.
The control arm product line developed a
widespread reputation for its innovative design and outstanding
quality. The product line was proven again and again on road
courses, drag strips, and main streets across the country. Now in
2015, this product line covers nearly every performance application
that uses a standard four-link suspension design from the factory.
In the following years, the line of now well-known
"chassis-specific" NHRA-legal driveshaft safety loops was
introduced. These loops were custom designed as the ‘Solution’ to
the problem of universal driveshaft loops that are supposed to fit
all vehicles but actually fit none. Now in 2015, nearly 30
different vehicles are covered in this product line.
In the year 2000, the owners of Metco Inc. chose
to divest the motorsports division. In June of that year, Metco
Motorsports Solutions became solely owned by Ron, son Aaron and wife
With hard work and careful guidance from Ron,
Kathy, and Aaron, the company continued to grow and expand the Metco
Motorsports product line. The company’s experience with Aaron’s
Ford Lightning truck and supercharged Harley Davidson F150 led to
the development of a comprehensive line of billet pulleys, idlers,
and even complete supercharger drives for the blown factory Fords.
Metco Motorsports quickly became the premier supplier of blower and
accessory drive systems for these applications.
A notable company project, a Factory Five roadster
powered by a modified GT500 engine and a Viper-spec six speed, was
a ground-breaking effort that has proven to be an effective way to
showcase the company’s design and manufacturing capabilities.
In 2007, the team of owners grew to include
long-time friends Rick and Kristi Bejarano. Rick and Kristi joined
the team to help manage the companies ever-increasing workload, to
develop new product ideas, and to expand the companies marketing
efforts. Rick and Kristi brought their enthusiasm for building and
racing cars as well their marketing and IT experience from their
years in the professional field.
A few years later, Ron retired from the business.
He now has the time to pursue his own hobbies, which include a 1972
Buick GS Stage 1 and the frame-off restoration of a rare 1970
Oldsmobile 442 W-30.
Aaron, Rick, Kristi and Kathy work closely
together to manage all aspects of the business. The team is
constantly working to develop new products, improve existing
products, and further improve production efficiency. With an
established and skilled production staff, the CNC machines stay hot
manufacturing original Metco products as well as a number of
proprietary products for other retailers. The Metco catalog has
been significantly expanded and includes hardcore racing parts for
nearly every domestic performance vehicle, and new parts are being
added to the catalog on a regular basis. Production capabilities
continue to grow as part of the on-going effort to keep up with the
growing number of customer orders.
From its modest beginnings more than 15 years ago
in a home garage, Metco Motorsports makes full use of its 6000+
square foot facility. All product design and prototyping,
production, assembly, packaging and shipping occurs at this building
in Anderson, SC. Metco Motorsports is fully equipped with a series
of state-of-the-art Haas CNC lathes, mills, a precision metal saw,
