MagnaFlow Performance Exhaust got its start as a natural extension of Car Sound Exhaust Systems, Inc., our parent company, that specializes in superior catalytic converter technology. Car Sound Exhaust Systems, Inc. has spent 25 years earning a reputation as a market leader around the world.
Today, we at Car Sound/MagnaFlow are extremely proud of this and stake our 25 years of experience and reputation on each and every one of our products. Each new product we develop is personally evaluated by me and tested by our team of designers and engineers, then field tested to ensure that these products meet our stringent quality and performance standards.
Mario Andretti has joined our team and now stands with us in supporting our conviction that Car Sound and MagnaFlow Performance Exhaust stand alone as a leader in the exhaust business.
To further reinforce our message to the world with respect to MagnaFlow's rugged reliability, our continued affiliation with Dennis Anderson's "Grave Digger" and the Monster Truck Series will demonstrate the durability and performance potential of our products. As you might expect, the drivers of these Monster machines were unwilling to compromise performance by strapping on just any old muffler. MagnaFlow was selected to develop a muffler that would allow maximum performance, and still deliver that killer sound.
On May 18, 2000 Car Sound/MagnaFlow Performance Exhaust was awarded the ISO-9001 certificate. ISO-9001 is an international quality standard created by the International Organization for Standardization to define quality management and manufacturing systems. It has 20 specific design, material, and process requirements that help MagnaFlow/Car Sound ensure customer satisfaction with our products and services. ISO-9001 certified companies are re-audited every six months to ensure that quality standards are maintained.
Together, we stand united in our passion to deliver the best performing, most durable and capable exhaust components in the world. As we go forward, you'll slowly start to witness a change as we segue fully into the MagnaFlow Performance Exhaust brand identity, a name that has achieved global recognition. This change will simply help people from both sides of our business understand that high quality and high performance is part of our mantra and...it's in our name.
