Company started in 1996 when owner, Adam Taft began to sell import performance parts out of the office of his parents architectural business located in a small house in Beaaverton OR. Friends would ask for Adam who would roll out a bakers rack out which contained all his inventory.
In 1998 Adam left his parent house and rented space in a small retail in an industrial park. For the first time company had employees and inventory. Under the name ALTA Sports company became the premiere Honda tuning and aftermarket specialist in the portland area.
In 2002 the Honda market became over saturated so started to carry aftermarket Subaru products. Subaru was so successful dropped all other products. Jeff PERRIN joined staff as an installer/tech as quietly began to manufacture a few Subaru parts under the PERRIN brand name.
Bursting at the seems as PERRIN and ALTA brand parts were selling like crazy, were forced to move once again in search of a larger warehouse space. New vehicle lines like the EVO and Scion were added. Also bought a massive 2 car stacker trailer and hauler plus purchased first forklift.
In 2007 purchase a 25,000 sq/ft facility in Hillsboro oregon. With room to grow could now add more production and more office staff. First the first time since began manufacturing had a real showroom for local customers to see products and purchase an in-house dyne for testing and tuning
