2011 was a year filled with success and innovation for Full Speed Ahead (FSA). We aimed high, and achieved excellent results. Now we are challenging ourselves again in 2012. We move forward with a desire to deliver the best possible components to our customers and a determined spirit of competition.
At the end of 2009 FSA celebrated the opening of a new, modern factory. It is a four story 125,000 square foot building dedicated to manufacturing, making it one of central Taiwan’s largest and most efficient factories.
The new campus represents more than our company’s growth and commitment to the cycling industry, it allows us to more than double our manufacturing capacity and incorporates the very latest technology. Among other changes, we have increased carbon component production and testing capacity, added hot press carbon rim molding machines and 5-axis high-speed CNC machines, which allows us to ramp up the capacity of our carbon rims and proprietary hubs while offering uncompromising quality control for all our products.
Also in 2012 we will expand our wheel assembly, completed entirely by hand, from Italy to the US.
