RPG Offroad - Torchmate Table and Business Growth!
Advanced Fabrication for Ford Trucks
Corey Kausch, co-owner of RPG Offroad, started the business in his garage many years ago. RPG Offroad was created with one simple goal in mind, and that was to advance the Ford Raptor and F-150 platform to new heights. When it is designing components that will exceed normal factory operating limits on a routine basis, it has to have stellar engineering capabilities and the company’s components are precision crafted using modern day CAD technology. RPG lives, breathes and sleeps engineering to bring the most durable and safest parts to all Ford trucks. With over a decade of experience and racing wins under their belt, and with the capabilities of the Torchmate 4800 machine, they can deliver those parts.
Corey’s company rapidly established a reputation for turning out top-quality custom parts and it quickly outgrew the garage space. He talked with us about the process of growing the business and transitioning to a shop; along with the challenges it brought and solutions to those challenges. Corey highlights how purchasing the Torchmate 4800 machine saved his business.
“There is always a consideration when you're a small business owner of how to use your finances wisely. We started RPG in our garage and over the years it has changed a lot. We had a big problem with productivity. We were always at the mercy of others manufacturing stuff for us. Put it this way, if there was something that was needed right away, I would have to go and bang on a suppliers door and ask them, ‘What do you want, a Starbucks card or a bottle of Tequila? We need parts.’ I would do that over and over and over again. Now that we have the Torchmate table, we can do that all in-house. We’re not at their mercy anymore.”
Integrating a Torchmate CNC Plasma Table
The table gave RPG a competitive advantage. Since the purchase of the machine, the business has been able to reach entirely new heights. Now RPG is teamed up with the best of the best in the Offroad industry to bring Ford F-150 & Raptor owners the absolute toughest and safest off-road suspension performance upgrades on the planet.
Lincoln Cutting Systems is proud to have made huge positive impacts on RPG and many other business across the world. Corey Kausch explains how purchasing a Torchmate table is a significant decision, but an imperative one for any business looking to grow.
“I had to say what is my justification? What is my return on my investment? How many hours a month is that machine going to have to work to pay for itself? We have had the machine for a couple years now and it paid for itself in full in nine months. We're good to go! Everything that we now do on this table is a profit. We trust Lincoln to give us the equipment that we need.”
