  • UMI Add’s New Equipment to its Facility

    We had a few exciting things happen this week at UMI, we received two more CNC machines for the shop and we are excited to get them under power. We hope the addition of these machines will increase our production and allow us to venture into developing new products.

     

    We received a Daewoo Puma 200 turning center with bar feed and a Amada Hybrid CNC laser. The Laser was a big boy and they had to bring in the boom truck to unload it and set in on the dock.

     

    As soon as the machines are in place and under power we will snap a few more pictures or videos.

  • Now Available! Tubular K-member for 1982-1992 Camaro & Firebird

    We all know weight equals horsepower. UMI’s new direct bolt-in replacement K-member instantly removes 20 lbs of front end weight from your ride and helps your existing horsepower work for you. Strong dual tube construction and a host of high-strength features ensure the UMI K-member will survive street use, drag strip blasts and autocross action. The K-member is fabricated from CNC machined 3/16” thick mild steel held together by a strong dual tube lower section. Factory clamshell and engine mounts bolt to the precision machined mounting pads or add our new LSX adapter plates to install any LSX based engine. Lightening holes are CNC machined into the mounting plates and the tubular construction provides added clearance for aftermarket exhaust. The modular design permits stock spring and strut use or simply remove the spring pockets and convert to coil-overs. Street and track testing on our ’89 IROC test car has shown this K-member to be strong, reliable and a great upgrade for your high performance ride. Available in tough powder coated red or black finish. Manufactured with pride in Philipsburg, PA – USA

  • UMI K-member hits the track and survives!

    Chris Johnson cuts a 1.29 60′ Running UMI goodies under his 4th gen LS equipped F-Body. Chris tells us his UMI k-member has hit the ground twice, once leaving a nice size divot in the track. His UMI K-member remains unharmed and shows no sign of wear. His exact words are:

     

    “Your K member has been my savior twice. The extra tubular wall on the bottom was a major selling point for me. Everyone is trying to cut weight where ever they can including me, but I am glad I didn’t in the K member department. The extra 6-7lbs is definitely worth it. Saved me two oil pans, two trans pans, and maybe even the car if oil would have gotten under the tires, not to mention a flat bed tow home since I drive the car to the track . The lower tube is just far enough to protect the stock oil pan, even from a very violent 175ft wheel stand where i had to let out completely and have it come down full force. To my surprise just the back corner of the oil pan and front of the trans pan were scratched up, the headers weren’t as lucky haha…And recently about a month ago I had it happen again, just snapped up on me.”


  • One of UMI’s distributors returned an item to us that a customer claimed “poor quality item and that an end cap fell off in the box”. Once we received the item back we immediately realized this was a competitors product and not ours! We snapped a few pictures of “Competitors X’s” product compared to UMI’s similar item. The pictures say it all.

  • UMI Performance Expands to New 35,000 sq. ft. Facility

    UMI Performance is anxious to share with everyone that in February 2011 we moved our entire facility to a new larger location located in Philipsburg, PA (only 10 minutes from our former Bigler, PA location). Due to limitations on growth allowance at the Bigler, PA location, it was determined that UMI needed more room, much more room to be exact! UMI is now settled into a 35,000 square foot building which houses the Corporate Offices, 6 CNC machining centers (with plans to add more in the near future), numerous cut saws, 5 MIG/TIG Welding Stations, enclosed Sandblasting area, large Powder Coat Booth, Powder Coat Oven, expanded Assembly area, packing and shipping area, expanded stock inventory area – and the new large testing and design area. We are now able to have our shop cars all inside one location to test and design as needed. We will continue to expand our product line, test and improve upon current products – and ship orders within 1-3 business days (but most orders ship the same day!). With the new layout and the design flow of the new larger facility, this allows UMI Performance to run more efficiently and effectively. We still have a lot more plans for the new facility, which will come in time. Our growth and expansion is all due to our faithful customer base and we would like to thank you for that! Below are a few pictures of our new facility prior to our move-in, as well as some of our large machinery being moved (which was a huge task to say the least). As we continue to grow, we will include additional pictures – and we invite you to check back often. If you are ever in the Central PA area, give us a call, we would love to have you stop by our facility for a tour. UMI Performance – designed and manufactured in the USA.
