As we begin 2023, our 52nd year in business, it’s an opportune time to reflect on how Art Morrison Enterprises has changed over the last few years. Today, Art Morrison Enterprises has one of the best groups of employees that we’ve ever had – including the excellent new members we added during a time when good, talented people are especially hard to come by. All our employees have the passion and the drive to ensure our customers are taken care of at all costs, which has been of paramount importance to us since our founding. Our ownership also changed mid-2022 with Art and I closing the deal for me to purchase the business after he made the difficult decision to retire and refocus. Although Art is no longer the president of the company, he still has his office and comes in every morning, now without the burden of running the business on his shoulders. It’s important to note that the change in ownership is still business as usual at AME, having worked with Art for nearly 20 years I understand the company inside and out and intend to retain the people and the values that make us an industry-leader. Beyond adding to our product line-up, Art Morrison Enterprises is still the same company with the same attention to customer service and detail that you’ve come to expect, just with new ownership. The excellence in customer service, design, engineering and craftsmanship – which I regard as second to none – will remain the same as it always has been.
Coming out of 2021 sales increased to record levels, which admittedly put a bit of a kink in the supply chain. As a result, we brought many outsourced products in-house to regain control over lead times and quality. Instead of relying on third party castings and forgings, we developed our own designs to improve the product at the same time. Aside from solving supply chain issues, we’ve also taken steps to clean up internal processes at no expense of quality. In doing so, we achieved better lead times while producing even higher quality products.
2023 is already shaping up to be a very exciting year! We have several new projects in the works that will be released throughout the year. A Mopar K-member that combines the advanced driving characteristics of our Sport C6 IFS is near completion. This lightweight yet stiff design is the most unique on the market and will perfectly showcase all elements of our high-end craftsmanship. In addition to the new K-member the biggest project that we’ve undertaken in the last 25 years, which is still under wraps, is scheduled to begin production in 2024. Every piece and component of this new chassis line is being created following our new engineering approach and it shows! Driving characteristics, durability, aesthetics and quality are all equally important in this chassis design, which is unparalleled in the market today. We look forward to sharing more with you soon!
