Roush celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2006. What began in 1976 as Jack Roush Performance Engineering is now recognized internationally as a premier provider of automotive engineering and systems integration solutions, with over 2,500 employees in facilities across the globe.
Roush has grown significantly over the years in direct response to our customers needs. Recognizing that integrated services provide tremendous efficiency and synergy, we have strategically acquired skills and expertise in areas such as advanced composites, body design and engineering, paint and trim services, fabrication, and instrumentation. This focus has resulted in Roush’s unparalleled ability to lend support across the entire product development life cycle.
Several key acquisitions have rounded out our product and service offerings. Our acquisition of Anatrol NVH Services, with their extensive experience in the field of mechanical noise and vibration analysis, has provided a critical component in Roush’s portfolio of comprehensive engineering services.
In 1997, Roush acquired Detroit Art Services, which for many years supplied the leading automotive manufacturers with advanced technical publication services. This acquisition has enabled Roush to provide our customers vital communication services, ranging from print and video materials to web-based projects, technical documentation, graphic services and promotional materials.
In 1999 Roush entered a joint venture with Uniboring to form Performance Assembly Solutions (PAS). Through PAS, we have the ability to offer our customers seamlessly integrated engine development services, taking an engine from concept to assembly.
Our acquisition of Crucam in 1999 added significant rapid prototyping, machining, and manufacturing tools to our broad range of service offerings. This division, which became Roush Manufacturing Services, offers advanced technologies and state-of-the-art equipment in our Livonia-based Design through Manufacturing Center.
Roush Performance, established in 1995, has been an exciting by-product of our focus on acquiring the technical expertise and resources needed to effectively serve our customers’ needs. Roush Performance’s line of Roush-designed, engineered, and manufactured niche vehicles and vehicle component packages offers consumers the perfect blend of 30 years of technological expertise and Roush’s innate passion for performance. In 2001, RPP launched the Roush Stage 3 Mustang, recognized by critics as a finely engineered performance vehicle that is as exhilarating to look at as it is to drive. Currently offered in over 450 dealerships around the country, The Roush Performance line of products exemplifies the art of performance engineering.
In 2007, Roush Racing and Fenway Sports Group (FSG) announced the formation of Roush Fenway Racing. Under the terms of the agreement between the two companies, FSG purchased 50 percent of Roush Racing to form the new entity. Jack Roush continues to manage the competitive operations of the race teams. FSG will support Roush Fenway Racing's marketing and sales activities by using their experience, network of relationships, and powerful demographic base to add value to Roush Fenway Racing sponsors and help Roush Fenway Racing maintain an unsurpassed position among NASCAR teams on and off the track.
Our 2008 purchase of the assets of the life sciences division of Nypro, a Massachusetts-based global supplier of precision plastics parts for the consumer, electronics, healthcare, packaging and automotive industries, led to the establishment of Roush Life Sciences.
This acquisition enabled Roush to increase our activities in the rapidly expanding market for OEM Healthcare and Laboratory Research products. Roush Life Sciences provides engineering services and OEM proprietary products to leading healthcare and distribution companies for a variety of applications.
Through strategic planning and acquisition, commitment, and hard work, Roush has developed an unparalleled reputation for technical expertise, quality and value. Our focus on providing seamlessly integrated services and streamlining the product development process has accelerated our customers’ critical product-to-market timing objectives – a vital advantage in today’s competitive market.
