Lakewood Industries, part of the Prestolite Performance family of brands, is a manufacturer of bellhousings, suspension components, and chassis components. Founded in 1965, Lakewood has grown from its humble beginnings as a small fabrication shop in Lakewood, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland. In 2010, the QuickTime brand was acquired by Prestolite Performance and joined with Lakewood to become the leader in safety bellhousings. The combination of these forces has brought racers the largest selection of bellhousing applications and a new production process that gives racers a lighter weight bellhousing that still has all of the safety features they want and come to expect from Lakewood Industries.
Lakewood Industries is proud to manufacturer products in the USA with experienced craftsmen. This in-house production and skill is what allows Lakewood to offer custom products built to your specifications. Specialty bellhousings can be built to your order in 2-4 weeks.
At the heart of Lakewood is the development and testing of products by its engineering and research and development teams. The teams utilize CNC machining, in-house chassis dyno, and a fleet of test vehicles including modern muscle cars such as the 2011 Mustang and 2010 Challenger. Most important of all, however, is a staff of talented engineers with real experience not only in the lab, but on the track as well. The company is fortunate to be located near 4 different sanctioned quarter mile facilities, and they prove the value and performance of the products from the burnout box to the big end. Lakewood Industries is proud to be a company for enthusiasts by enthusiasts.
